I still remember the morning my friend Karla called and told me "What if we start making face masks!?" 💡 this was a couple of weeks ago and the COVID-19 situation in my country was actually still super calm.

ALL businesses were open, but what was happening in other countries was impossible to ignore, and since we were living in a place that welcomes thousands of people from all around the world (Playa del Carmen, México) it was time to prepare for the worst while hoping for the best and looking for the positive side in whatever life will bring us.
