2,500 masks donated
DesignLabGive, the non-profit for women's rights broadened its scope to address basic human rights amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. With the help of 35 volunteers 2,500 masks have been made since March to help aid the community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our volunteers, kids, teens, and adults alike have done their part to address the urgent need for PPE that does not take resources away from our brave healthcare professionals and first responders.
Behind the Masks!
DLG partnered with Breakthrough Miami to teach volunteer-run weekly classes in Fall 2017 & Winter 2018.
Breakthrough provides an academic enrichment program to under-resourced middle-school students.
We taught teen girls the art of sewing and showing creative possibilities as a tool for independence.
DLG taught weekly classes for women living at the Miami shelter during Spring 2018.
We provided a safe place to explore creativity and a source of motivation for women who were experiencing difficulties.
The Guatemalan-Maya Center
DLG donated Brother sewing machines & fabric so the community of migrant workers and their families could have access to masks during the pandemic.
Sewers taught others, empowering an entire community.
Lets Get Dyed
A Miami-based business, featured in various fashion magazines, currently sells our masks on their site, made from their tie dye material.
100% of profit is donated to DLG.
