SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--The father and son co-founders of got-mask.org delivered masks to Santa Barbara County Search and Rescue members on Wednesday.
The delivery came just in time for crew members who are preparing to travel to Butte County in Northern California where they will help with search and rescues efforts in the wake of deadly fires.
Mark Hall tried on an orange one on Wednesday afternoon. The orange masks were made to match search and rescue jackets.
"This mask feels so much better than the other one, it fits a lot tighter, it's a lot better and with the surgical mask that goes inside. It gives us that much more protection, " said Hall.
Drake Rabin, who started Got Mask with his dad said it is the least they can do.
"They give back, they serve us, I mean it is just a tiny thing we can do to repay them for what they do," said Rabin.
The name Got Mask is the play on the popular "Got Milk" campaign from years ago.
When it began people were just starting to wear masks.
Harry Rabin said proceeds from the masks and other items sold on their website benefits first responders. He said people may also donated.
"If they go to got-mask.org they can see our products, all the products go towards PPE, our funds. We are going to be doing Sansum next, the Search and Rescue was our first recipient and if you go to our website you are giving to them."
Their motto is "spread the word, not the virus."
