もともとは、ハワイで子供の洋服などを手作り販売していたJaclyn Karreira の娘がトーナメント旅行に行く際に、チームのためにマスクを購入しようと思っていた。オンラインで探したが買うことができなかった。そこで、自分で作ってみようと決意。
Jaclyn Karreira says it all started about five weeks ago, when her daughter's volleyball team was heading to a tournament in Las Vegas. Karreira went online to look for masks, but noticed they were completely sold out. So, she decided to step in and do it herself.
After posting a picture of her masks to her business's Instagram page, the orders came flooding in.
"The first day was like 20 orders, which was surprsing to me. I didn't think I was going to get that many orders. Everyday it's just been more and more. It's been about a few hundred masks that I've been making every week," explained Karreira.
Just a reminder, the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention recommends that healthy people don't wear masks because they won't protect people from the virus. However, if you are showing symptoms of COVID-19, wearing a mask can help prevent others from getting infected.
