In the past few weeks, we’ve had lots of requests for donations from healthcare workers. For those on the front lines, it turns out, a clean shave is crucial: N95 masks and facial hair don’t mix, and many healthcare workers are not returning home out of concern for the well-being of their families. In response, we’re committed to giving $1 million worth of Harry’s products to healthcare professionals in the U.S. One half of our contribution will go to hospitals in New York City—our hometown—through the Mayor’s Fund, and the other half will support hospitals across the country. Are you a healthcare worker? Do you know of a facility that could use our support? Please reach out to us at covidsupport@harrys.com. We’d love to lend a hand.
