Difficult times often bring people together to allow for friendships and collaborations flourish, bring hope to others, and strengthen our community. At Upcycle Foundation, we are thrilled to join forces with Josie Bruno Vintage, a brand that shares our sustainability values and creates fashion that is good for the planet and good for the people.
Patti Rivero, the founder of Josie Bruno Vintage, has created a cult celebrity following for her bespoke jackets curated with a mix of vintage and modern fabrics to create a truly one of a kind garments. As a response to COVID-19, Patti has donated over 1,000 jacket backs to produce masks, all of which she has sewn and given to more than 500 first responders.
Every day that passes, the demand for masks increases. It is time for all of us to join forces and optimize our resources to reach our combined goal of making 12,000 masks for first responders and community activists. Together, and with the help of World Red Eye, we will strive to provide masks for the first responders in our community.
Please help us reach our goal by making a symbolic purchase! Every mask you donate is a mask to our health heroes.
One hundred percent of your contribution helps support the makers and the materials used to make the masks.
