GET A MASK. GIVE A MASK.
Face masks have become part of our new reality. And WLRN has you covered! If you can't show your smile, why not show your support for the fact-based coverage you count on from NPR and WLRN!
When you donate $10/month or more, you can do twice the good. Get a Mask/Give a Mask offers as your Thank You gift a high quality microfiber face mask featuring the WLRN/NPR logo on a black mask, with your choice of message: “Facts Matter” or “Fact Up.” Your mask also includes a lanyard to keep it close, and keep it clean.
And for every mask requested WLRN is pleased to donate one unbranded mask to those in need in your community through our community partnership with the Salvation Army, distributing masks through local chapters from Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Monroe counties.
It all starts with you. With many months to go in this pandemic and its impact on our economy, your donation helps sustain WLRN’s vital coverage – the coverage you count on. Donate today and you’ll be giving something of value to those in need across the airwaves, and together with our friends at the Salvation Army, across the communities of South Florida. Thank you for your support!
Please note: The elastic bands on these masks are made long enough to accommodate any size. They have been loosely tied to adjust the knot to the desired fit. All you need to do is:
Get a good fit and tighten the elastic, so that it is snug.
Pull the tightened knots through the seams to hide them (optional).
It is not necessary to wash the mask before wearing. Handwash + hang to dry (when needed). Do not microwave.
The Salvation Army
The Salvation Army is working hard to make sure they are “Doing The Most Good” by trying their best to keep patrons and staff healthy and free of Covid-19, and encourage the use of face masks. Safety is of the utmost priority, so they have ramped up efforts to slow the spread of this virus among employees, volunteers, the homeless and other vulnerable people they serve.
About the mask: These masks are made with high quality microfiber, hand/machine washable and can be dried in a household or commercial drier. They are made with a pocket to insert a filter, if needed. The elastic bands on these masks are made long enough to accommodate any face size and can adjust to the desired fit. Wearing a barrier like a mask helps prevent face touching, and lowers the risk of bringing viruses and bacteria into your mouth, nose and eyes. This lowers the probability from becoming infected with communicable diseases such as the coronavirus (COVID-19), influenza and the common cold.
Disclaimer: This mask should not be used in any surgical setting or where significant exposure to liquid, bodily or other hazardous fluids may be expected; in a clinical setting where the infection risk level through inhalation exposure is high; or in the presence of a high intensity heat source or flammable gas.
