COVID-19 UPDATE AND MESSAGE
First off I want to say THANK YOU for your continue love and support during this uncertain time, and for coming to visit the Lil' Lou Lou website.
I was truly looking forward in seeing and meeting so many of you at this years Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender. However, the health and safety of everyone is far more important, so along with so many other events across the country, VLV was also cancelled.
On March 23, 2020 United States requested from all seamstresses to help and make protective face mask for healthcare workers. That whole week it was weighing on my heart, and I knew I had to help out in any way I could. I saw Mondo Guerra (previous contestant of Project Runaway) Instagram post, and he mentioned if anyone wanted to help make mask to send him a direct message so he can provide you with the list of hospitals. He eventually replied and he put me in contact with Kelly Dempsey another previous contestant of Project Runaway. She sent me the list of hospital, and I immediately started sewing. Over 100 volunteer sewers who emailed Kelly, including my self have been sewing none stop to make these mask for different hospitals across the USA.
In addition to helping sew mask for healthcare workers I wanted to do something for all of you Lou Lou Dolls and Gents that are considered essential workers. On March 27, 2020 on all Lil’ Lou Lou social media platforms I made the announcement that I would make you a mask FREE OF CHARGE. The only thing I asked was for you to pay the shipping cost. There were so many of you that responded and not only payed for the shipping cost, but also gave a donation. That donation I have used it to continue to make more mask, pay for the shipping cost to send to hospital and healthcare workers, and lastly buy any extra supplies needed for me to continue donating where ever they are needed.
As of April 6th it is now mandatory in the state of California for everyone to wear face mask, and I’m sure other states will follow. Just like I offered to my customers & followers that are considered essential workers, I am offering the same thing to you and your family. Yes, I can make men, women, children and teen sizes mask. FREE OF CHARGE just pay for the shipping cost. It will take me a bit longer since I am still sewing and donating to hospitals and essential workers, and please take into consideration that I am the only one cutting, sewing and packing the mask.
Send me an email at email@example.com or send me a direct message through any of my social media platforms
Many of you have reached out to me privately, and have ask how you can help my business during this time. Just continue to do what you have been doing. Purchase something from my website, or a gift card which is now available. Share with your family and friends on your social media platforms by tagging Lil’ Lou Lou and sharing with them why you love this Women Latina Owned Small Business.
Being a part of certain events/festivals always gets me excited. The reason being is because I know that at these places it gives me the opportunity to interact with all of you. However, with this situation we are all in, this will not be happening anytime soon. Until we can you know that you can interact with me, and other fellow Lou Lou Dolls and Gents on the Instagram and Facebook page. As a matter of fact I encourage it even more so now. I don't want to loose the relationship we have built, so please stay connected.
Lastly, I want to say to all those essential workers that might be reading this THANK YOU! You are brave and extraordinary. Stay safe, healthy and for those who can stay home, please do so.
