On March 16th, 2020 our parties & events business (ArtsyEvents.com and BestPartyArtists.com) came to a screeching halt - and we were forced to lay off 80% of our office team and cancel all upcoming events for the next couple months on our calendar.
After a few days of stunned frustration, we gathered our wits and our hope - and decided to re-activate our wide network of party artists and craftspeople. But this time to join the fight together against the spread of this virus in our country!
We are #USAProud.
This "hand-made protective face masks & filters" project exists to:
1. Provide the best protection we can (with locally found materials) for our city's most at-risk workers and families. Save the medical-grade PPE for the hospitals!
2. Provide a way to keep our local gig-economy workers earning a living from home during this season of social distancing. Buy from us to keep the movement going :)
Every purchase keeps a local artisan working working from home, bolsters our hurting local economy, and helps protect a citizen from this pandemic. Join the fight with us today!
With love, prayers, and lots of hope...
-Sean Hyatt, Founder & Lead Artist
