I posted a selfie, April 26, on Facebook, wearing a mask that I designed and created.
Well, as a result of the overwhelming response to my initial Facebook post, “Queen Bee Masks” officially launched on April 28 and immediately soared beyond anything I could have ever imagined.
I’m receiving orders almost daily, and of course sewing daily.
When I learned through the media, that Chef Jose Andres and the World Central Kitchen was working in Baltimore City to provide meals during the Covid19 pandemic, God placed on my heart to donate mask sales proceeds to his organization.
I have very strong support and support from family and friends, and am now receiving orders from strangers from as far away as Myrtle Beach, S.C.
I don’t believe any of this would have happened if my initial intention had been to simply profit from the tragedy of Covid19.
