One-of-a-kind face masks protecting Central Florida first responders
— The Spring of 2020 will be remembered for the devastation wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic. History will mark the tragic loss of life, social-distancing isolation and economic hardships suffered by billions around the world. But for many, its legacy will be the selfless acts of those who helped hold communities together.
Songstress Alicia Keys crooned her appreciation in a simple but powerful tribute, Good Job, that implored the faceless heroes –doctors, nurses, police, firefighters, teachers, grocery store workers – to carry on the fight.
Don’t get too down.
The world needs you now.
Know that you matter, matter, matter.
Aviation apparel company Chart it All is showing its appreciation by helping to keep those on the front lines safe. It is donating a protective face mask to first responders and essential workers for every specialty mask it sells. The shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare workers has been well document as the battle to save lives during the pandemic rages on.
“Chart it All wants to do its part to support those front-line heroes,” said Trevor Simoneau, who launched the company at age 11 to help fund his aviation education. “We know the aviation community is a close-knit and generous group with a long history of charitable giving. We’re providing an opportunity to donate to an important cause and look stylish with your own Chart it All mask.”
The masks, made of premium brushed polyester fabric, are already showing up on the faces of first responders and essential workers in the Central Florida region, where Chart it All is based.
The company, which offers one-of-a-kind items emblazoned with personalized aeronautical sectional charts, began donating face masks this month featuring four standard sectional charts: Orlando – KMCO, Sun ‘n Fun – KLAL, Oshkosh – KOSH, Daytona Beach – KDAB, and Kennedy Space Center – KTTS. Custom aeronautical chart face masks are also available.
