Alexa's Hospital List:
Facilities Accepting Handmade Masks
Alexa Magyari is a public health Ph.D. student of health economics at U.C. Berkeley School of Public Health that is making a list of all of the hospitals that need masks, with their requirements. She has started a list, canvasing the 5100 major hospitals in the U.S.
Elizabeth Townsend Gard nicknamed it Alexa's List. She responded "I am so humbled by all the people who have embraced my plan and have been working as hard as I have alongside me, and I really don't want to diminish their contributions." We know that. And we are really appreciative of her and her team's work. We're working on a different name...stay tuned.

What is her advice? Check the list to see what a hospital needs near you. Some have specific pattern requirements. Also, if you would like to volunteer to help with the list or you are a hospital who needs masks, contact email@example.com.
Alexa is also a crafter! She put together her love of crafting and public health skills. She's amazing. See her blog, http://thewannabegrandma.com/
