Heya folks, we are having a crisis here in Oakland of unbreathable air, due to the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in California history. N95 masks are selling out very fast, and I see children and transients out without any covering at all.
I was able to snag a box of ten, but we’ve given most of them away, and may need more ourselves soon, since breathing in smoke wears them out after 8 hours of use, apparently… Check No, you do not need a new N95 mask after [#] hours. – Lavender Hat, where a Lavender Hat looks into such claims. Yay! Give everyone a mask!
So here’s the deal: send me masks! I will give them out to everyone I can, and nearly everyone I know needs one. And if everyone I know has one, I will walk down the street to hand them out.
Send masks to:
maiki 2323 Broadway Oakland, CA 94612
They need to be N95 (or better, but no idea how those costs). Normally I’d boycott Amazon, but they sell them in 10 packs for ~$20; search for
3M 8511HB1-C-PS Sanding and Fiberglass Valved Respirator, 10-Pack. Any amount, from anywhere, is appreciated!
Please help my community breathe!
