The Masks for Change Ethos
We are a 100% Australian owned small business based in Melbourne, Australia.
Masks for Change was created during our search for comfortable and attractive washable and re-usable fabric face masks. Starting out, we had no idea where to buy face masks online, particularly where orders would be shipped quickly within Australia.
During this search, we noticed there were a lot of face masks for sale, but there were so many different types and designs and we struggled to find something we were happy with.
We wanted one place to purchase masks that ticked all of the following boxes:
- Shipped within 1 business day from within Australia.
- Reliable tracked postage with options for free shipping.
- A minimum of 3 layers as recommended by DHHS Victoria and the World Health Organisation.
- A variety of elastic ties and fabric ties.
- Face masks that are shaped to fit around the nose and face snugly.
- Face masks that are attractive and offer a selection of simple colours as well as fun prints.
- Face mask options for every member of the family.
- Sourced from reputable and transparent suppliers, who operate ethically.
We are so excited to bring our high quality range and convenient shopping experience to you.
Masks for Change Donations
Masks for Change was created in a time that was incredibly challenging and uncertain for everybody.
That said, some people have been affected by Covid-19 and the impacts of lockdowns more than others, including economically, mentally and emotionally.
It's therefore important to us that as we grow, we give to those who need it at the same rate. That's why $1 from every mask sale will be donated to Reach Out Australia, Australia’s leading online mental health organisation for young people and their parents.
ReachOut has been changing the way people access help since launching as the world’s first online mental health service more than 20 years ago. ReachOut is accessed by 132,000 people in Australia every month. That’s more than 1.58 million each year.
We will publish our donations at the end of each month here:
- $231 donated to Reach Out Australia on 28 August 2020.
- $674 donated to Reach Out Australia on 28 September 2020.
- $912 donated to Reach Out Australia on 28 October 2020.
