Join our 'Un'Masking
Support our frontline healthcare workers
Frontline healthcare workers have stepped up across the country to help keep us safe throughout the pandemic.
For many, this selfless work has come at a cost. One study found that 40 per cent of physicians and nurses who provided care to COVID-19 patients were experiencing depression, anxiety, insomnia and distress. Those who provided direct COVID-19 patient care were found to be two to three times more likely to develop symptoms of post-traumatic stress.
While we have honoured them in a number of different ways, it’s now time for us to support their recovery from the micro-traumas they’ve experienced.
The pandemic has left no one unscathed, but it has undoubtedly impacted our frontline healthcare workers the most. I’m here to pay it forward and support their recovery from the physical and mental micro-traumas they have all suffered. Our challenge is to provide a complimentary copy of my book, Welcome Back! to each healthcare worker who wants one. It begins today with your support.
The ‘Un’Masking Together Challenge aims to get as many copies of Dr. Elaine Chin’s book, Welcome Back!, into the hands of our frontline healthcare workers.

The Masking Together Challenge #1 started with a very simple mission to protect and support our frontline healthcare workers and fellow Canadians. Thanks to our generous donors, we raised close to $200,000 for PPE, COVID-19 research and safe sanctuaries.
Empowered by the generosity of Canadians, we launched Masking Together Challenge #2 soon after. This time, the focus was on the invisible frontline: the healthcare workers who supported marginalized and at-risk communities. Thanks to an outpouring of support, $120,000 worth of PPE was donated to more than 30 shelters and drop-in centres across Canada.
