Many states across the country are advising people to wear a face mask in public due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, it’s hard to find face masks in stores or online -- unless you want to deal with price gouging.
But now, Kim Kardashian is doing her part to help people.
Two days ago (May 16), Kim Kardashian announced she would be selling face masks. She tweeted, “NOW AVAILABLE: @SKIMS Seamless Face Masks in 5 colors at http://SKIMS.COM Buy 4 for $25 now and enjoy free shipping on domestic orders, while supplies last.”
Kardashian posted later that day on May 16, “Unfortunately our @skims face masks have sold out today but we’re working with our local partner in LA to produce more as quickly as possible. The next batch will be available next week - please sign up to receive more details coming soon, and thank you for your support.”
According to the SKIMS site, they are also donating 10,000 face masks Baby2Baby, Good+ Foundation, LA Food Bank, and National Domestic Workers Alliance.
