MakerCause is a growing movement that could greatly benefit from volunteers wanting to give back during this time! Your contribution will help us increase the development and distribution of face masks to help ensure the safety of our healthcare professionals, law enforcement officers, and those vulnerable to Coronavirus exposure. We can work together to protect each other and help the healthcare industry provide extraordinary treatment to their patients.

How did this all start?

Our team came together and discussed how we could help alleviate the shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) our world critically needs at this time.

Will you continue to update the mask design?

Yes, and we encourage any participants to submit enhancements to so we can evaluate them and provide updates to the master branch.
