Hi!! My name is Isabella Appell. I am the face behind Talking Masks. I have been passionate about ASL for quite a few years. During the Covid-19 epidemic, I have put my passion into creating masks for hearing as well as hard of hearing people.
At this time, it is so important that the Deaf Community is given the same opportunity to communicate in our world as everyone else. I am so excited to be able to raise awareness for them through these masks.
Please join me in this adventure to help the Deaf Community. There is no charge for the masks, only a shipping cost. Donations will go directly to the Hearing Aid Project. They provide resources for hearing professionals, manufacturers, and individuals with hearing issues in the communities we serve.
Please donate to my personal fundraising page below for the Hearing Aid Project.
Feel free to contact me with any questions and send all orders with your information to firstname.lastname@example.org or on my contact page below. Please let me know if you would like a regular mask or one with a clear screen. At this time we can't make masks for children.
Due to overwhelming demand and limited supply, we can provide only one mask per donation to a single address at this time. We regret that we are unable to accept requests for any specific color or pattern. Colors and/or pattern will be randomly determined. Each mask is individually made and is shipped in the order it is received. Due to Covid19 we can not exchange masks. We can only ship inside the USA. Thank you for your understanding.
Below, in the photo gallery, you will find photos of some of the masks I have made as well as those with a clear screen. This makes it accessible for those who rely on reading lips. You will also find artwork of mine that I use as another source to raise awareness for the Deaf Community.
