We are all in this together, but we noticed that children need smaller masks to properly protect their faces.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) May 01, 2020
Inspired by the call to action against the COVID-19, put forth by Wardour Studios chairman, Seven Nia, during February 2020 Hollywood Stars Gala - Oscars viewing and dinner, Alex Nia (11th grader - Calabasas High School) and Magnolia Wu (8th grader - Thurston Middle School), two upcoming Hollywood talents made their mind and began to do their part in the fight against the pending.
Magnolia and Alex met at the Gala, in February 2020. The two young talents were inspired by Steven Nia as well as other celebrities, including Academy Award winner Roger Christian, Grammy Award winner Drumma Boy, Dr. Khalilah Ali (ex-wife of the Champ, Muhammad Ali), Floyd Mayweather Sr., and IBF and WBO boxing champion Zab Judah, and joined forces to combat the coronavirus, in order to help protect children during the pandemic.
Driven by their heartfelt call to help the kids and putting to work their entrepreneurial skills, the team managed to raise sufficient funds from friends, family, and their followers to acquire thousands of disposable children's protective face masks.
Alex and Magnolia personally delivered and donated 8000 children’s masks to three staff members of LA Children’s Hospital, who gratefully accepted and thanked the team for their great contribution.
Alex Nia told staff at Children’s Hospital, "We are all in this together, but we noticed that children need smaller masks to properly protect their faces. So we decided that buying children specific masks would be most useful to help mitigate and prevent contamination to children, particularly those children who have to spend time in the hospital, for whatever reason."
"There is no reason to slow down our fight just because we have made some progress. We must continue to do all we can until this horrible pandemic is fully under control." Said Magnolia Wu while handing over boxes of children’s masks to the hospital representatives.
According to Angelina Leo, the chief operating officer at Wardour Studios, really focused on their mission for children. The masks which they researched and found are suitable for protecting children between the ages of 4 and 14, and are made with 3 layers of Non-woven fabric (polypropylene).
