Meet Carolyn. She’s a junior in high school here in Anchorage, AK and is asking for your help in making a difference.
She’s had some experience with medical professionals over the course of her life due to being a student athlete, and recently was taken care of for a bad car accident. Well, Carolyn wants to give back to the people who helped her and is challenging you to do the same!
Due to schools being closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Carolyn found herself incredibly bored and searching through her family garage. She stumbled upon an old sewing machine and, with the help of YouTube, started making medical masks to be donated to local hospitals! She is now working with Julie Taylor, CEO of Alaska Regional Hospital, to see how these masks can make a difference.
Carolyn is putting each mask made up for adoption at a cost of $.85 to cover the material cost of the mask, and is splitting proceeds raised between the Anchorage Senior Activity Center and the Children’s Lunch Box! Some local businesses and individuals have already pledged donations, will you?!
Check out her GoFundMe and make a donation HERE.
