Donate Your Fabric to Help Front-Line Workers
Wearing Masks Hurts!
After a few hours, mask straps start to cut into ears, and get painful. Front-line workers are dealing with so much right now, the last thing they need is to be struggling with painful sores on their ears. So, let's work together and make a difference for the people who make a difference every day.
Donate Your Fabric: Cotton Lycra and/or Spandex
Inspirations Dancewear is supporting a former dance studio owner in donating a simple but extremely useful solution, so front-line workers can wear masks constantly without injuring their ears: stretchy headbands with buttons.
Inspirations has donated all the lycra fabric we had on hand, but much more is needed! Now we’re looking for help from our dance community.
If you make dance costumes, or are a 🧵 home sewer, and have left-over cotton lycra or spandex from your past projects, please consider donating it to this great initiative!
Your donation will be used to create headbands with buttons for doctors, nurses and other front-line workers in hospitals throughout Ontario.
🎁 Get a FREE Gift Card as a Thank-You!Include your name and email with your donation and you'll receive a "Thank-You Gift Certificate" from Inspirations Dancewear.
