Masks for Donation
As you may have seen on social media, here at KURTEES we have embarked on a program called #IUsedToBeAKurta.
Originally, this program was geared towards us using unsold stock to make tote bags, but as COVID-19 reached pandemic levels, we knew the most useful thing we can do is to create masks for those that are unable to afford them. To date, we have upcycled our supersoft, breathable, 100% organic Kurtas and Churidars into 1100 masks which have been donated to those in need. We have been able to supply masks to YUVA (yuvaindia.org), Goonj (goonj.org), Bal Asha Trust (balashatrust.org), and more. All of these NGO's are all supporting underprivileged communities at this time.
Now we’d like to offer you a chance to make a difference as well! As we continue to upcycle our unsold stock into masks, we are giving you the opportunity to donate them. These masks are meant for those that do not have access to N95 or surgical masks. They are double-layered and provide some basic protection to the wearer.
The masks are available in lots of 10, 25, 50 and 100 pieces, and are being sold to you at COST. Post your purchase, the masks will be donated to Goonj or a similar charity. Goonj is a highly reputed NGO in India and engages in a wide variety of causes throughout the country. We encourage you to visit Goonj.org and Instagram @goonj.
While we understand that times are difficult for everyone, we are grateful for any help that you may be able to offer at this time. We would also appreciate if you could please share this with your family and friends.
During your purchase, you will be asked for your shipping address. Please enter the same address as your billing address. We will ensure that the masks are provided to the charity on your behalf.
