What's it really like to be on the frontlines of COVID in Canada?
Meet Kim. She's a Miik community model, but more importantly, she's a nurse on the frontline of COVID-19. We were able to chat with Kim about what it's really like being a nurse right now, and how we can help. Last week, we were able to send Kim and her coworkers some care packages with cozy Miik socks, handwritten cards from our kids, and fabric face masks for the hospital admin staff.
Right now, we're making non-medical masks that are available for donation to the frontlines and essential services including hospital admin staff, grocery store workers, and community shelters. We've already paid for the first 100 masks - and now you can help carry it forward! We are so much stronger when we come together 💪
Thank you again to those on the frontline, or working in essential services. We acknowledge your incredible bravery and strength today!
Here's 3 simple ways you can help!
1. Stay home if you are able. Kim said it best in our video conversation: "be mindful of your practices and keeping your hands clean. And stay away from people, to hopefully make this end quicker." Listen to your local authorities and be compliant so we can keep people safe.
2. Donate a mask. We are now making non-medical masks available for donation. These masks are going straight to essential service workers.
3. Spread love, not germs! As Kim touches on in this video, it can get to be a lot, seeing scary news headlines constantly on our tv, social media and conversations. We say, try and make an effort to encourage someone today and let them know something you appreciate about them!
