One of our Budtenders, Jenni Sniffen, started making Face Masks in response to the COVID19 Pandemic. How she got started was an organic action.
Jenni was already a skilled seamstress and very crafty person. She was recently out grocery shopping for her family while the world was panic buying toilet paper. While she waited in a long checkout line, she found pleasant conversation with the shopper behind her. He was a nurse who was shopping for the people in his neighborhood. He told her that they were out of face masks at the local hospital and this was very concerning to the staff at the hospital.
To Jenni, this health care practitioner was one of the world's unsung heroes.
This inspired Jenni to take action. She zipped home and researched "how to make the best COVID style face masks?" She learned, while doing her research, that not only the local town was affected by this lack of face masks. She immediately made her first goal to make 20 masks for local Healthcare professionals and those in need (those people who have immune systems compromised and others at risk).
She turned to the team at Carolina Hemp Hut for support and got the ball rolling. She quickly reached out to the local community and roughly gauged the overall need for these face masks; not just in the health care industry but also those immune compromised and those who care for them.
Jenni has led the charge and the team at the Carolina Hemp Hut salute her efforts and are working with her to promote better health across our communities.
Face Masks: Your Help is Needed
Jenni did considerable research as she built her product plan. The team met and discussed ways to help the community at large. It was determined that people most at risk were least likely to afford the over-priced masks found across the web. This led the team to determine that the masks would be offered lower than cost to those who needed them first. This meant the original calculated price would be struck and the masks would be shipped nationwide and delivered locally to those in need first.
Please, if you're aware of someone who is at risk due to this COVID19 pandemic, provide them or their caregiver with this information. Share it with them in social media or send them the product link from above via email. We're going to ship limited amounts of masks at this time with production ramping up.
The entire Carolina Hemp Hut team is behind the effort to help others avoid illness, build up immune response and live well. We hope that everyone joins with us in the effort to help others as we can make better things happen if we work as a team. If you would like to donate to the effort, please contact us at [email protected]. We are not seeking cash donations; merely hoping for others to share the news about our efforts and the admirable work of Jenni (and others!) to help fight COVID19.
