CAN WE AUDIOPHILES DO OUR PART?


So we're all tired of hearing about nothing but Covid-19 (or, as I term it, the C-Plague). What can we do, as audiophiles, to help with all this.
I was amazed, and delighted, when I went to the Cardas website to see that they are doing their part. Go to their website and you'll see their director, Angela Cardas, wearing a mask. If you click on the Cardas Nautilus logo in the upper left corner, you'll see pictures of people there in the factory making masks with sewing machines. I called the company to congratulate them, and spoke with a woman named Darla, who said it was their way, during this economic slump, to keep their employees working and also their way of trying to "do our part."
I'm not writing all this to advertise Cardas products. They are a very good company, but trust your ears, not anything I write, when it comes to buying their products. They do get credit, however, for helping me come to a realization that pushed me in the right direction. I called a woman I am friends with, who is 85 years old and is a good seamstress, to suggest she start making masks. She already was--and is. By phone she has organized several other women to do the same, and right now they are needing more material and elastic. I managed to gather about 50 pounds of material and am starting to gather elastic while also getting more material. But I don't sew. I can't help out with that. Any ideas as to what we--all of us who are good with our ears and focused with our budgets--can do to help out in other ways?

I realize this is an odd topic to bring to an audio forum, but it was a very socially responsible audio company that got me to thinking about it, and frankly I believe I should be socially responsible enough to do what I can to get other people to thinking about it. While also being open to other people's ideas about ways someone like me who is "just an audiophile" can help.

Thank you, in advance, for any and all ideas on this.

If you want to do your part, go out and protest the unconstitutional lockdown and closing of businesses. The models were beyond wrong. Hospitals are not only not overwhelmed, they are empty and laying people off. I know. I work in x-ray. In Seattle. Once ground zero. Now the only zero is our economy. But not because of the Rona. Because of the political response to the Rona. 

They closed down parks and trails. They have people wearing masks outdoors. Hello, people! You get close enough, long enough, you need a mask. Outdoors that is impossible. Never happen. So make a mask. Carry a mask. Know when its necessary and use it then - and only then! 

Do your part, but do it right. Like this Special Forces veteran.

Do you wear head protection when you work in x-Ray?

 @Millercarbon Say it brother!!
@millercarbon,

I was wondering when you would again politicize a thread.  You did not disappoint me, thank you. Here I thought you were being a good boy after that very long thread that is still being added to.  I guess you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. 
Given the average age of audiophiles, no offence intended, doing your part is to stay safe, stay healthy, and stay out of the hospital. Don't be ashamed to ask for help if you have high infection rates in your area. Ask someone to get your groceries, etc.
