ABOUT HANDS ON MASKS

This site and all of our efforts are dedicated to the heroes who are on the frontlines of this pandemic.

Our mission is to unite a community of people all over the country by inspiring them to come together as one and donate their time and resources to create much needed non-surgical masks.

Together, we can not only create awareness but we can help those heroes in desperate need who leave their families home everyday to go out and help everyone else’s.

BARBARA KAVCHOCK

DESIGNER

Owner of Barbara Kavchok Couture, Barbara and her team create beautiful dresses for brides on their big day. Being a female entrepreneur has given Barbara the ability to spend time with her family and those closest to her. Recently with the health crisis, Barbara decided to create masks for healthcare workers in an effort to aid those at the front lines. Longtime client Linda Oliver connected with Barbara and was inspired to take the idea to the next level, creating Hands On Masks.

LINDA OLIVER

FOUNDER

Founder of Hands on Masks, Linda was inspired by her client, bridal designer Barbara Kavchok, to work together when she learned Barbara was making handmade masks for those in need.

When she’s not on a photo shoot or in a fitting, the Texas-born fashion model spends her time on the race track, in search of adventure. Philanthropy is a priority to Linda. With Hands On Masks, Linda’s mission is to raise awareness and bring the community together to help medical heroes on the front line receive basic supplies during this world crisis.
