The battle against COVID-19 continues, but public perception remains mixed. That needs to change. Healthcare heroes are fighting harder than ever on the frontlines, so let’s redefine the mask as a symbol of strength. Let’s recognize the people who wear them for hours to keep us safe.

The Idea

The #OurStrengthIsBeautiful campaign will raise funds to provide personal protective equipment (PPE) for healthcare heroes, who often reuse the same mask for hours. Let’s recognize that strength and show solidarity by taking a masked selfie. You can also provide direct support through our GoFundMe page. 100% of donations will go towards the purchase and distribution of PPE.

Our fundraising goal is:


How it Works

1. Take a masked selfie (in-feed / stories) showing support for our healthcare heroes.


2.Tag #OurStrengthIsBeautiful and @DonatePPE.


3. Nominate friends to take the challenge.
