Simply tie a ribbon -- any ribbon of any color -- on or near your home.
A tree, bush, front door, mailbox, balcony, garage door… anywhere that it can be seen.
Show the front line workers in your neighborhood how much we appreciate them.
Here are some photos from our Masks For Heroes’ team members' homes:
WHAT DO I DO?
WHY ANY COLOR
Over the years “Awareness Ribbons” have become a way to show support or raise awareness for a particular cause, with a color assigned to each. Pink for breast cancer. Red for HIV/AIDS. Yellow for childhood cancer.
However by 2020, each color now represents multiple causes as multiple groups have adopted the same color for different missions.
Currently, there are no unclaimed colors.
Masks For Heroes strongly encourages the practice of shelter in place, and we do not want people leaving their homes in search of a ribbon or fabric in a particular color.
