No, we’re not the 2020 version of Ghostbusters

My guys and I are modeling a few of the masks my mom sewed for us shortly after the pandemic started.

With the stay-at-home restrictions being lifted, some of you may want to continue wearing masks in public places.

That means, you’ll probably need more than just a few, right?

You may remember, I shared in a previous post that my mom

started sewing masks for essential workers.

I talked about how I finally convinced her to start making them for anyone – for a donation – to help pay for the cost of making them for free for the people on the frontlines.

Well, as fate would have it, her 20-year-old sewing machine then decided to quit.

So, we bought her a new one for Mother’s Day and she’s back to making masks for essential workers again!

If you’re interested in a mask or a couple of them – Martha’s Masks is officially up and running!

She’s asking for a minimum donation of $8 each + $2 shipping (+$1 shipping per additional mask).

To order, all you have to do is:

Venmo your total to MarthasMasks – and then email her at – with your name, Venmo handle, shipping address and order specifications.

She will then sew and ship to you right away.

My mom has been self-isolating from the beginning.

Like a lot of people, it’s been tough on her.

But this has been a terrific way for her to stay busy and make a difference for the people putting their lives at risk, to save ours.

Thank you mom!
