In early-March 2020 Americans were just starting to see the detrimental effects of coronavirus. With their communities in peril, New Mexico makers responded to the growing need for personal protective equipment. They mixed hand sanitizer and molded soap, sewed masks, made and donated thousands of ear-saving clasps. They shifted from everyday business by creating and distributing supplies for health care and essential workers. Now it's our turn to show we care. Support your neighbors. Buy locally made New Mexico True Certified products.
We owe the idea to gather New Mexico True Certified “Life Savers” to our partners at Inaccord Designs.
Hearing from front line healthcare workers about mask discomfort and sore ears, veteran and business owner Audie Bell wanted to help. He and Melody fired up the laser and developed a comfortable hook that fastens behind the head using mask straps. In a few short weeks, they donated over 1,200 hooks to employees of the Veterans' Hospital in Albuquerque. Today, the Bells are making customized masks for businesses as well as personal use.
