Future ’s FreeWishes Foundation has teamed up with Atlanta Sewing Style to create custom masks for healthcare professionals and patients currently hospitalized due to the coronavirus pandemic — the appropriately dubbed #MaskOn Campaign.
According to a press release, the Atlanta Sewing Style collective is comprised of over 500 sewists and designers who will “create, cut, sew and deliver the much-needed masks to local hospitals.”
“There is so much that needs to be done during this crisis and if everyone can step up in some way, we can all get through this together as we serve our community,” Future’s mother Stephanie Jester said. “I think that our healthcare professionals are the heroes in this situation and they are risking their lives for everyone, so it is our responsibility to help protect them.”
Tia-Wilburn Anderson, Future’s sister and FreeWishes Foundation co-founder, added, “It is important to my brother, Future and I that we are of service to our community, especially during this pandemic and throughout the year. This is why our family created the foundation.”
