I don’t know what I’m doing wrong -but I’m just trying to sign up for 10 masks for CDS (I already made 10 and dropped them off for URMC)….it just keeps asking if I want to ‘clear’ my last signup and I cant seem to sign up for CDS.
I sent you an email. Message me back or call if you’re still having trouble. =)
Will you be providing the materials (cloth,ties/elastic, nose wire)or is that my responsibility ? Pattern style? I’d love to make whatever.
Only offer what you are willing and able to donate! And that’s after you’ve made masks for yourself and your household.
Our initial plan was, indeed, to provide all of the materials but then all of our shipments were either blocked or seized and never made it across state lines to us. We’re left scrambling with what we can find from leftover projects. If you don’t have elastic (as it’s now sold out basically EVERYWHERE), you can cut fabric into strips and sew them into ties. People often prefer the ties because you get a better, more secure fit and it’s way more comfortable.
I’ve turned in masks for U of R Medical. Should I clear my own name now? Jeannette W.
That’s most excellent! The peace of mind and security you’re offering the people wearing the masks and those they encounter is immeasurable.
No, please leave it for the record. You only clear it if you cannot fulfill your commitment.
