Here we share our top tips for hosting a mask tree and would love to hear what other tips our hosts and makers have. Please share them on the Facebook page or let us know here.

Expectations

Asking for donations

Expectations

Your tree cannot be fully stocked all the time- that is unless you have a huge team of makers, so do make it clear in your signage and advertising what people can expect. Some react ‘oh good community masks, I will go now and get some’, thinking there is an endless supply and you are like a supermarket, always fully stocked. They don’t pause to wonder how the masks get there!

Asking for donations

We may not be able to ‘sell’ our masks but we can make it very clear what would help us continue to provide these for our communities. Do consider informing your community re costs involved.
