Gamers can now show off their Xbox love while stopping the spread of COVID-19. Meta Threads announced today that it is selling a limited-edition Xbox mask as part of its #GamesMasks4Masks campaign.
Profits from the $20 masks will be used to manufacture two additional masks that will be donated to MasksforDocs, an organization that helps distribute personal protective equipment to hospitals, healthcare facilities, and frontline workers. Made from polyester and spandex, the hand washable and reusable masks are manufactured in the United States and come with an adjustable aluminum nose insert.
The #GamersMasks4Masks campaign has already donated 55,700 masks to the cause and features a wide variety of designs including collaborations with PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and Halo. Meta Threads also partnered with Halo developer 343 Industries in April to sell Halo shirts to benefit GlobalGiving's COVID-19 relief efforts.
