We just want to do what we can during this time and provide high-quality masks to people, as well as keep our employees in Los Angeles working - Helena Cho, Good Work(s)
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) April 09, 2020
Pro-life businesswoman Helena Cho and her husband have gone from making jewelry beloved by celebrities and Instagram influencers to making masks during the COVID-19 outbreak.
Both Cho and her husband, David Chang, run successful international fashion and jewelry businesses based in the Los Angeles area and have been outspoken supporters of Save the Storks and pregnancy resource centers (PRCs).
Cho is the CEO and founder of jewelry company Good Work(s) Makes a Difference and Chang runs a garment manufacturing business called Federal Merchandising. Terri Hatcher, Usher and Justin Bieber are just a few celebrities who wear Good Work(s) bracelets.
“We just want to do what we can during this time and provide high-quality masks to people, as well as keep our employees working. My employees have been with me for a long time and I have a responsibility to protect them,” Cho said.
Together they have teamed up to make masks at Chang’s factory in Los Angeles and sell them through Cho’s Good Work(s) company. Staff are now making 15,000-20,000 masks per week to be sold to the community – fast food chains, grocery stories, city workers and more. Cho says 100 percent of her staff are now making masks.
“When you’re pregnant at this time of the pandemic, it’s a scary time. Mothers have to protect themselves and their babies. Masks are selling out. We can help each other out and get a mask delivered to their homes so they have something to cover their faces,” she said.
“Helena Cho is an incredibly talented designer, and also a strong and humble Christian business leader. She is a role model for girls and women in the United States and around the world,” said Diane Ferraro, Chief Communications Officer at Save the Storks. “Helena does so much behind the scenes to support women, pregnancy resource centers, churches, children, schools, the homeless and orphans. This act of kindness and putting her faith into action is beneficial not only for the millions who are in need of quality masks at affordable prices, but also for the factory staff in California who otherwise might not be employed if not for this new manufacturing effort.”
Retail prices run anywhere from $5.80-6.80. To purchase masks online, visit GoodWorks website.
