WATWB: Mask Makers


11-year-old sews 500 blankets and over 1,000 masks for kids in need

Lucy Blaylock learned to sew three years ago when she made a quilt for a friend’s birthday….

“After the party she asked her mom if they could put together a blanket giveaway for children in need. She posted on social media and received 16 messages from parents of kids battling cancer, autism, bullies, and a move to a new city.”

“She’s donated 1,100 masks since March to those asking for a helping hand — including an order for the Ronald McDonald House, her mom said.”

Here’s more from Good Morning America.
