Caring for Our Community

4/2/20: Everyday doctors, nurses and essential service workers are boldly facing the COVID-19 crisis and every day, we as a community, are being asked to help contain the crisis, keep our distance and use protective measures. While we’re doing everything necessary to keep our teams and our valued customers healthy and safe, we want to do more. We’ve seen the impact using protective masks has made in countries that have flattened the curve (China, S. Korea, Taiwan, Singapore) and we believe masks can help us contain the virus and keep the vulnerable safe.

Starting today, VIDA will produce and stock washable and reusable 100% cotton protective masks designed to be used with a PM2.5 6 layered activated carbon filter inserted within the fabric. These masks are not substitutes for FDA approved N95, surgical or procedural masks.

You can purchase these masks individually or as bundles at a price that allows us to fund the manufacturing and supply. Plus 15% of profits from all mask sales will be donated to the World Health Organization’s COVID-19 fund.

If you would like to purchase in bulk or to donate, please reach out to us at: bettertogether@shopvida.com

3/26/20: We are all affected by the growing COVID-19 pandemic. It’s an unprecedented health challenge and we know our community wants to help. Support The World Health Organization‘s global effort, supporting countries to prevent, detect, and respond to the pandemic. Donations support WHO’s work to track and understand the spread of the virus; to ensure patients get the care they need and frontline workers get essential supplies and information; and to accelerate efforts to develop vaccines, tests, and treatments. Visit – https://covid19responsefund.org/ to donate.

3/25/20: Some of our factories have temporarily closed to adhere with global shelter in announcements, but we remain open online. Thank you for your patience as orders may be delayed. Health and safety is our top priority at the moment and we’re doing everything we can to help with social distancing while we continue to support our artist community and showcase their work and stories online.

3/15/20: As we deal with the uncertainty and anxiety during this isolating time, we have created a space for our artists to stay connected with VIDA and with each other through our VIDA x Studio Facebook page. On this page, our artist community will find stories from fellow artists around the world and inspiration and strength for these tough times as well as important announcements from VIDA. Our hope is that this global situation and this platform will serve to bring us all together and allow us to openly rely on each other.

To our VIDA community,

Nothing matters to us more than the relationships we’ve built with our community of artists, customers, factory workers, and the extended VIDA team. The wellbeing of this community is at the center of everything we do – and it is our greatest priority.

As we continue to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation very closely, we wanted to share the actions we are taking to keep our teams and our valued customers healthy and safe, so we can continue to deliver the VIDA experience you know and love.

Hygiene standards for our employees, office environment, products and warehouse are and will always be a top priority. As the situation continues to evolve in the U.S., we have taken additional actions to ensure our entire team is here to serve you in the safest way possible. All our San Francisco based employees are working from home and our warehouse staff has been trained to follow the latest guidance from the CDC, WHO, local governments and public health agencies.

We will use this space to share with you regular, real-time updates on everything we’re doing at VIDA to support our community worldwide. Please keep checking back with us and pls share your thoughts, ideas, questions, and suggestions with us. You can email us hi@shopvida.com or call us at (+1) 877.529.8432.

Our hope is that this global situation will serve to bring us all together and allow us to openly rely on each other. We hope you stay safe and find comfort in our global, connected community. 

Thank you for being a part of VIDA. 

Sincerely, 

Team VIDA
