We have all been forced to spend time at home, right?
We were all faced with the daunting prospect of not knowing when lockdown would end. Making it through the days by exploring our creativity, focusing on ourselves and nurturing our relationships with family and friends.
We at LEE REINA feel so fortunate to be able to explore our creativeness at home in comfort. However, those in abusive households do not have the same privilege. Imagine having no safe space or refuge.
LEE REINA campaigns for Refuge
LEE REINA is a womenswear label from London, who specialise in made-to-order apparel.
We have chosen to support Refuge, a charity whom supports women and children who are affected by domestic violence. This pandemic has seen a rise in domestic violence, as women and children are subdued to more threatening situations. Refuge is committed to a world where domestic violence and violence against women and girls is not tolerated and where women and children can live in safety. They aim to empower women and children to rebuild their lives from violence and fear.
These handmade masks have been created to reduce the spread of the virus and help protect those in danger.
The masks are made from breathable cotton, a natural fibre that can be washed at a high temperature and will have less of an impact on the environment. They have ties and an inner slot inside for an optional filter.
While masks do not fully guarantee protection they have been highly recommended and will likely be a necessity when social distancing measures are reduced.
How will we raise money?
Donate £10 and receive an adult face mask, donate £7 and receive a child face mask. Please select your chosen colour, wear your face mask with pride and continue to follow the necessary social distancing procedures, knowing you may be helping women and children in need.
UK postage is included in the cost.
Masks will be sent as soon as the donation and address are confirmed.
