Our first donation and THANK YOU!
Today, we were able to make our first donation of $500 to the Greater Boston Food Bank! Thank you to all of our generous supporters. We were able to raise this in 2 weeks, which is incredible. I was reading the New York Times today, and according to the Brookings Institution, nearly 1 in 5 children aren't getting enough to eat. I am proud to support the Greater Boston Food Bank and it's mission to ensure that families around Eastern Massachusetts have access to fresh and nutritious food.
As a senior in high school, I've struggled with graduation and prom being canceled, and with the uncertainty of the state of my coming freshman year of college. Creating this project with family and friends has been a fantastic way to help myself give back in a time of such uncertainty.
Again, thank you so much for not only helping me to give back but helping me to create something that has brought a new sense of purpose to my time in quarantine. I hope you and your families are safe and enjoying your time together. Whether you are discovering a new hobby, working from home, or taking some much needed time for yourself, remember, any experience you are having right now is valid. Although there is so much uncertainty in the world, we all have an incredible opportunity to create and share new things in a unique setting.
Thank you so much for supporting Masks by Izzy in our first few weeks of business. Whether it be sharing our order form on Facebook, sending encouraging messages, or getting me in contact with local news organizations, everyone who has ordered or reached out has made an enormous impact. More to come in the future, but I can't wait to see where this incredible journey takes me.
