By converting manufacturing to produce N95 certified masks to donate the New York City based jewelry company Adornia is addressing the serious Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) shortage problem. The business requested their box supplier in the Guangdong Province in China to adapt staff and invest in technology to fabricate the U.S. regulation certified masks.
Donating N95 Masks Adornia Makes a Difference
At a time of increased tension between China and the U.S., with added racism toward Asian Americans, this is the ideal model of passionate humanitarian cooperation. Adornia has brought both countries together to address necessities so greatly needed by the U.S. medical community.
The jewelry company owner felt lucky to still be receiving orders during the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic and has felt a need to graciously give back. She purchased the produced 10,000 N95 masks to donate to Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in NY as well as to others in need. Adornia is the only company giving free masks to people in need that is not contingent on a sale.
Moran Amir, Adornia founder, states:
“I am lucky to be in business with most of my sales coming from online retailers such as Nordstrom.com. I am happy to give back to the community and I love New York so much It breaks my heart to see this city sleeping for once. The mask donation to NY Presbyterian was obvious for me. I also want to reach people in need who cannot afford masks by having them sign up in our Instagram profile @Adornia. Time to give back even if the environment for small businesses is uncertain.”
Adornia Pays It Forward to Employees and N95 Mask Donation
The small woman-owned and run business has expressed that the company has had the added level of stress of social distancing causing them to instruct employees to stay home for safety. Even though staff cannot go in to work at the Chelsea NY workspace Adornia has continued to pay their valued employees noting, “paying bills should not be an added stressor for anybody right now.”
Adornia’s Amir continues to fill online orders with specific caution to ensure the safety of bought items. She is striving to bring beauty and comfort to people in this time of uncertainty and apprehension.
In this unimaginable worldwide battle against a pandemic enemy, it is reassuring to know that humans are coming to the rescue to help others on the front battling to win the war. By manufacturing and donating the life-saving N95 masks Adornia is proving how important it is to pay good fortune forward.
