Megan Dunscombe started her vinyl printing company, Made by Meg, over a year ago printing custom shirts, sweaters, stickers and other items for individuals and businesses all over Canada.
Meg had purchased face masks for her business and her dad, Trevor, who works at Habitat for Humanity Niagara, asked her to print on one of his masks just for fun.
“The masks come in all sorts of fun colours and I thought the staff at Habitat might like some too!”, explains Meg. “So, I made these masks for them because it was something I was able to do to hopefully make the best out of a bad situation.”
Last week Meg hand delivered the face masks to all Habitat Niagara staff who were quite surprised and very grateful for her gifts.
“I knew that these small ‘care packages’ wouldn’t solve all of the issues in the world right now,” said Meg. “I just hoped that I would be able to make at least one person smile during this difficult time.”
And that it did. Habitat Niagara staff are proudly wearing their custom printed face masks.
Each individually packaged mask comes with washing instructions, steps to protect users against COVID-19, hand sanitizer, as well as a ‘Stay Safe’ card.
“We were all blown away, as it was such a nice surprise and a sincere gift to our organization,” said Keith Gowans, Habitat Niagara’s COO. “I just want to thank Megan again for the incredible gift of masks to our staff and volunteers and for thinking of others during this tough time that we all face.”
