For every Be Kind mask purchased, Pop Culture Hero Coalition will donate 2 masks or face shields to healthcare heroes, created by our team, using authorized patterns. We are working in partnership with hospitals in NY, New Orleans, and Los Angeles, as well as a large, senior nursing home in Kirkland, Washington. For more information, please see www.PopCultureHero.org/shields.
