Submitted by: Melissa

Materials: Ceramic, electricity, water

Crisis puppy Toby + local need for masks = Toby on facemasks

Submitted by: Bertis Downs

Materials: Facemask made of dishcloth, screen-printed and hand-sewn by people here locally in Athens GA

Materials: Gloves, mask, tissues, thermometer, corn cushions, lidocaine
