The One Million Euro Mask
Wear a mask. Protect others.
And help us raise 1 million for Doctors Without Borders.
Our goal: 1 million euros for Doctors without Borders.
We can only achieve this great goal with you - together!
Our mask helps in two ways: First of all, by wearing it. On the other hand, for every ARMEDANGELS mask sold we donate 2 euros to Doctors without Borders. In doing so, we support the great work of those who help at the front line where the virus hits hardest.
Without further ado we have adapted our processes together with our producers in Portugal - and now produce ARMEDANGELS mask. They are produced with the highest non-medical standards - as always sustainable and fair.
It may cover your smile, but with our designs and messages, your positive attitude will always remain visible. This is more important than ever in these crazy times?!
From the end of April 2020 onwards, masks will be compulsory in all German federal states. This means that you must wear a mask that covers your mouth and nose, especially on public transport and when shopping.
A medical mouthguard (also known as a mouth-and-nose mask) must comply with a strict DIN standard and have a CE mark. The bacterial filter performance of the material must be at least 95%, a certain breathing resistance must not be exceeded and microbiological purity for the medical sector must be ensured. Medical masks protect patients and doctors. Our masks are therefore not medical mouthguards.
Our masks aim at protecting others from droplet infection by you. The goal is to prevent droplets and aerosols from spreading with viruses and germs through coughing, sneezing or talking. We try to achieve this by a multi-layer construction of the masks made of different materials. For this purpose, our mask sits flexibly and tightly on the face and thus avoids breathing past the mask. A nose clip supports this additionally and ensures a secure fit.
IMPORTANT: Make sure that you do not unconsciously touch your face while wearing the mask.
- Your mask should always fit snugly. Your mouth and nose should be completely covered.
- If your mask is damp due to condensation of the air you breathe, you should change it.
- Make sure to wash your mask regularly at a minimum of 60°C. Ideally using a powdered detergent.
- Wearing a mask in no case replaces the basic hygienic rules such as regular hand washing, keeping sufficient distance of at least 1.5m to your peers and always sneezing or coughing into the crook of your arm.
Before putting on the mask you should wash or disinfect your hands. Then put the mask on with the help of the elastic ear loops and cover your mouth and nose with it. Make sure that there are no gaps between your face and the mask. You can gently bend the nose clip to perfectly fit the shape of your nose. Replace the mask with a new one as soon as it is damp, or you have worn it the whole day. Remove mask using the ear loops and avoid touching the mask. And it is important to keep your distance even with a mask!
If your breath fogs up your lenses while wearing a mask, these simple steps might help: Put on your mask first and make sure that it properly fits around your nose. This avoids or reduces breathing into your glasses and allows your glasses to vent. To prevent fogging, you can rinse your glasses with soapy water and let them air dry or dry them with a soft cloth. You can also warm up your glasses with hot water. This reduces the temperature difference between your glasses and your warm breath. Be careful not to touch the mask while using it but remember to wash your hands often and keep your distance.
The mask cannot be returned for hygienic reasons. You understand that for sure?!
