KN95 Mask Donation
We have an opportunity as a community to purchase KN95 masks to donate to medical workers and facilities. We have confirmed with many medical professionals that these masks are acceptable and meet current safety needs.
This is a limited opportunity. We will be confirming the final quantity of masks to order within 48 hours of this product going live. We may be able to purchase more asks, but we should take this mission one step at a time.
Our goal: 1000 masks DONE!
Our NEW goal: 2000 masks by Friday (as of 5:00 pm PST Tuesday 1,538 masks have been donated)
What you are purchasing: You are purchasing a KN95 mask, made in China, which will be shipped directly to a Miami distribution center from China and distributed to one of the facilities below. Masks are sealed in boxes of 5 or 10.
The price: The price of the mask is the wholesale cost of the mask as offered to us. The price changed overnight due to increased shipping costs. Blackbird will pay all credit card fees for incoming transactions (estimated 3.6%), any sales tax if the government wants us to pay sales tax, and for shipping of the masks from Miami to the facilities. This is a not for profit effort.
MASKS WILL BE DONATED TO THESE FACILITIES*:
Swedish Hospital - Seattle Washington
Manhattan Veterans Administration Hospital - New York City
SUNY Downstate Medical Center - Brooklyn New York
Thank you for considering this donation and for joining us in this fight to save lives.
*This list was generated through email requests from our community. Although we understand that there are facilities in greater need than others, we believe this is not our area of expertise and that our small contribution will be appreciated where ever it goes as everyone is in need. We're doing our best.
Q: How do I burn an incense pyre?
A: First find a heatproof, non-flammable container such as a seashell, clay bowl, a rock or a device designed to burn incense cones. Place the cone in or on the container and light the tip of the cone with a lighter or match. Allow cone to burn for 10 to 15 seconds until a red ember is visible and then blow out. Your cone should smoke and continue to burn on its own. If it does not stay lit, try again.
Q: How long will a cone of incense scent my room?
A: Many hours depending upon your room size, ventilation such as AC or drafts. For larger rooms, burn two or three cones at once.
Q: My incense cone didn't burn to the end. What do I do?
A: First off, some mysteries of science and chemistry are never to be solved. Beyond that here are some helpful hints and tips. #1 Fire requires air. Try placing your cones on sand, salt or dry non-flammable soil to increase circulation. Also, try blowing on the cone a bit in the beginning to build up a larger ember #2 Made sure your cones didn't get wet or think about if the air is very humid. Water prevents fire. #3 Relight the cone. You can do this by holding the cone with tweezers for safety while you are lighting. #4 Break off the tip of a new cone. Sometimes the cone needs a larger ember to get started in life and to stay burning. #6 Don't let the flame run too long or too short before blowing out the cone. #7 Email email@example.com for help.
Q: Which of your scents are for men and which are for women?
A: We believe that scent is a personal expression of your individuality and it's truly up to the individual to select scents that are right for them based on their skin type and personal preference. This is one of the main reasons that we offer all of our scents in sample sizes for purchase.
Q: Why can't I smell my Pipe Bomb Perfume?
A: Pipe Bomb contains so few molecules that the nose may become anosmic to the scent. Read more about it here.
Q: My bottle of Pipe Bomb has white crystals around the sprayer. Is it defective?
A: Pipe Bomb is what is called a "molecule perfume". One of the molecules it contains starts out in the crystal form before being diluted with alcohol. When the alcohol dries down the crystals go back to their solid state. You can wipe down the crystals with a cotton ball soaked in alcohol.
Q: Where can I smell your incense and perfume in person?
Q: How can I sell Blackbird products in my store?
