- Bona Fide Masks Corp. (www.bonafidemasks.com), the most trusted source for authentic, high-quality masks, has announced an increase to its original donation of over 1 million KN95 respirator masks. Allocated for nonprofits and organizations in need, this effort represents an expansion of the company's social responsibility efforts and will help address the overwhelming need for high-quality masks among the underserved and critically compromised communities.
Established at the height of the pandemic to address the critical shortage of PPE, Bona Fide Masks® has supported impact-driven philanthropic efforts since its inception. The company has donated hundreds of thousands of KN95 masks to hospitals, frontline workers, educational institutes, relief efforts and more. The concept of giving back to communities in need is not new for Bona Fide Masks. This June, Company President, Bill Taubner, decided to formalize these efforts with a customer-driven donation effort. Bona Fide Masks sent a survey to its over 1 million customers encouraging them to recommend nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organizations to receive a minimum of 2,400 KN95 masks each.
"This has been an incredibly rewarding initiative for our company. We received an overwhelming response from our customers, recommending hundreds of organizations globally. As a family-owned and operated business, we loved the notion that our loyal customers would have an opportunity to work collaboratively with us to give back to their communities. To date, we have supported over 200 organizations with over 700,000 masks. These masks have been sent to a range of organizations supporting soup kitchens, educational institutions, medical research facilities and more. Our entire staff has had the opportunity to work on this initiative at some capacity and it has energized us. We started this business to do our part for the communities at large during the pandemic and this effort has magnified that drive for purpose." Bill Taubner, President, Bona Fide Masks.
