BETHENNY FRANKEL IS ON A MISSION TO DONATE OVER 1 MILLION MASKS TO HOSPITALS AMIDST CORONAVIRUS CRISIS
Tuesday, Mar 24, 2020

Bethenny Frankel is a God send!

The Real Housewives of New York star announced a couple of days ago that she’ll be donating 250,000+ N95 masks to NYC hospitals. Her foundation, BStrong Gem, is working in tandem with Global Empowerment Mission to manufacture N95 masks to fight against coronavirus, as well as assemble #coronakits that include sanitation wipes, gloves, SOS Hydration and other items based on the medical community’s recommendations.

After encouraging others to donate to the cause, the number of masks quickly jumped to over 500k and now over 1 million, People reports.

“I get over a thousand messages a day with people from all over the country – every hospital, every clinic, everyone in a panic and with no supplies,” Bethenny told RADIO.COM. “We decided to take all of the messages into a grid from all of the smaller hospitals from Sarasota to Saratoga to Philadelphia to New Jersey to Staten Island to all over the country, and keep them in a grid so that we have masks in major orders of thousands allocated to certain hospitals.”

 

Bethenny is grateful the opportunity to give back and assist those with supply shortages.

 “I’m grateful that I have a good support system. I’m grateful that I have a place to be. I’m grateful that I have a mission and a way to help and help be a part of a change in the world,” she said.
