A portion of sales proceeds will be donated to Hong Kong to NYC: Mask Circuit, a supply network organized by Tiffany Sia (HK) and Wilfred Chan (NYC) to send masks from Hong Kong to New York City ASAP by crowdfunding to funnel supplies sourced by Hong Kongers and factories to frontline healthcare workers, frontline wage workers, indigenous communities, people who are immunocompromised, and those who live with immunocompromised roommates/family/etc. Track their progress here.
