This past year has driven home a familiar truth, that we are all in this together.  Mighty Well’s mission has always been to provide community, information, and high quality products for people affected by medical conditions.  The COVID-19 pandemic expanded the need for healthcare products — from the 1-in-3 Americans who experience chronic illness to, well, everyone.  It takes all of us working together to keep each other safe and healthy.  Following the success of our Mighty Well Masks, we wanted to expand our impact by donating to nonprofits in need of breathable, effective, and stylish face masks.  

So far, we have donated over 1,000 masks to nonprofit organizations.  We’d like to introduce you to a few of them, and let you know how you can help them continue their important work:

Harlem Children’s Zone

“The Harlem Children’s Zone started with one mission that was the most ambitious and audacious in U.S. history: to end intergenerational poverty in Central Harlem and lead the way for other long-distressed communities nationwide and around the world to do the same.  

Harlem Children’s Zone breaks the cycle of intergenerational poverty with on-the-ground, all-around programming that builds up opportunities for children and families to thrive in school, work, and life. From early childhood, education, and career programs to community outreach and wellness initiatives, HCZ opens pathways to mobility and prosperity.”
