- HENRY Masks
We absolutely love HENRY Masks! What’s amazing about them is their conception story. At the dawn of the COVID-19 outbreak, there was a shortage of masks and medical supplies. HENRY stepped up and created a mask to meet the demand while also creating and providing jobs for the community. On top of that, for every mask sold, a mask is provided to Healthcare workers and families in need. We worked with them at the end of 2020 and it was great working with a brand that gives back. P.S. their mask designs are really cute and fashionable! Learn more about Henry Masks and shop their mask selections at https://henrymask.com/
