Help all Animals, Support our Community, Save the World. That is the core mission of the Machado Farm Foundation. When the call for people to wear cloth face masks began, we knew we had to support our community in the effort to provide affordable face masks people would actually enjoy wearing. We feel it is important to help educate others on the significance of wearing face masks while providing them at an affordable price. The masks we create are offered in exchange for a small donation to the farm and shipped free anywhere in the United States. We pride ourselves in making masks from 100% cotton, and love from the staff and volunteers on the farm that makes them by hand every day. We feel in this unprecedented time that our community needs our help and this is a way we can provide it. We also have donated hundreds of masks to those in need and plan to donate hundreds more. We believe that by making fun, comfortable, and affordable masks, people will be more willing to wear the mask.
All of our masks are made with 2 layers of 100% cotton fabric (A few of them have a third layer of a poly-cotton blend). Our masks come in adult and child sizes and are hand made on the farm every day. We use the fabric we can find that is fun, while maintaining our quality standards. These masks are simple and come only at the cost of a small donation to our organization so that we can continue the work that we do. Additionally, we have provided hundreds of masks for members of the community who have needed them most. Recently, we have donated over 50 masks to a family who needed them for a funeral so they could safely celebrate their loved ones’ life. The face mask was based on something the loved one enjoyed, Lighthouses.
While masks have taken a lot of our time we have not forgotten to help as many animals as we can and have during this time made key improvements to our facility and rescued any animal we’ve been contacted to help with. Our goal is to provide as much help and support to as many people and animals as we can. We also want to take the time to thank everyone who has been supportive of our organization from the start and throughout this unprecedented time. We are dedicated to doing everything in our power to help, and to encourage everyone to do their part to slow the spread and wear a face mask anytime they go out in public. Along with that, look for ways, no matter how small, you can help your communities both people and animals.
Again, from the bottom of our hearts, we would like to thank everyone who has supported us since we began the foundation in 2018. Without you, none of this would be possible. Thank You!
