Wondering what we're doing?

  1. Our team is taking time out of their normal work routine and duties to help sew face masks and other PPE for patients and healthcare individuals.
  2. Our Design Assistant has organized a hand-off between Afya Foundation and some of our trusted creatives in NYC to add elastics to otherwise unusable masks.
  3.  We're using our platform to connect and collect additional donations to create a much bigger force of volunteers behind this effort.
