Wear mask - saves lives
As the winter months creep closer, and with the ongoing pandemic still raging around the world and within our borders, it’s time we start focusing more on what we can do to protect ourselves. Even with hopes of a vaccine coming in the following weeks or months, we cannot underestimate the importance of taking basic coronavirus protection measures to ensure the safety of ourselves and others. As most of us are well aware, wearing masks is one of the best ways to accomplish this.
However, in order for mask wearing to be effective, it needs to be nearly or completely universal. According to a study conducted by Nature Medicine, if there is “universal” mask coverage, or 95% of all Americans wear masks, then we could save more than 500,000 lives, compared to scenarios where mask coverage remains at its mediocre 49% rate of coverage. The cumulative, yet drastic lifesaver that increased mask coverage could become is reason enough to make a habit of wearing one in public at all times.
At Jezuba, we’ve been working hard to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to protect themselves and their loved ones with masks. Especially in the coming winter months, it is imperative that everyone has a mask to use whenever in public, so that we can save as many lives as possible. By purchasing a mask from Jezuba, you are not only helping to protect more people, but also helping us to create more masks and expand our outreach to keep more people safe.

SUPPORT OUR HEALTHCARE HEROES
Healthcare workers, including doctors and nurses, have always been at the forefront of the effort to keep us healthy and safe. Now, more than ever, it’s time we give back during one of the largest health crises in modern history, the COVID-19 pandemic. Essential healthcare workers need proper, sanitary items to give patients the care and attention they need while remaining safe.
Jezuba has been working hard to help provide those resources for our healthcare heroes, many of whom have expressed immense gratitude for our efforts and donations. To give the rest of the community the opportunity to contribute to this cause, we have started the Healthcare Heroes Campaign. This campaign will enable 400+ gift packs, and our goal is celebrate Veterans Day with 350 gift packs to nurses at the VA Medical Center in West LA.
These gift packs contain essential tools to help care for the community during this pandemic, including a scrub cap designed and created by our artists and makers, as well as a pack of greeting cards that can be used to help our essential nurses keep in touch with their family and loved ones while social distancing.
By donating to our cause, you will enable us to expand our gratitude to and serve even more hospitals and nurses, while continuing to contribute to the fight against this global pandemic. We will be helping each other, and our nurses, stay safe.
