Samaria, a fashion designer, has refocused her business into creating face masks to address the urgent need for protective supplies for healthcare workers and regular citizens alike.

Since announcing the initiative, the former "EJNYC" star's masks are already sold out.

SAMARIA'S MASKS

Not veering away from what Shop Samaria Leah sells, which is denim, she's decided to make the masks out of the available denim cloth in her workshop. While Samaria is selling masks for individuals to use while practicing social distancing, she's decided to donate 50% of her earnings to "Make Mask Foundation."

Since announcing the initiative, the former "EJNYC" star's masks are already sold out and the proceeds were forwarded to her chosen organization. It is unclear whether or not she plans to release some more.

AN ACT OF KINDNESS

Meanwhile, a 13-year-old boy named Charles Randolph decided to use his own knowledge of a 3-D printer to print masks during the pandemic.

Speaking to local station WJLA, Charles revealed that he was inspired to use his parents' 3D printer to create masks after realizing his great-uncle is currently vulnerable to the disease because he needs a heart transplant. Realizing many others are vulnerable like his great-uncle, he made masks for them.

MAKING A SMALL DIFFERENCE

According to Randolph, it takes about 90 minutes to create a mask, and costs a dollar to make. Now, he's producing more masks with his free time because of the social distancing measures put in place, and he's looking for places to donate them.

Although he acknowledges that the masks are not sufficient enough to be given to frontline doctors and nurses that are treating COVID-19 positive patients, he says it could make a difference to people like his great-uncle and prevent them from being infected by the disease.

Before he made masks, the 13-year-old would only use it to make toys. He would take enrichment classes on how to use the equipment, and it's definitely paid off since.
