The novel coronavirus pandemic has devastated cities and countries around the world and transformed into one of the greatest public health crisis in modern history. One hair entrepreneur is using her company to give back to healthcare professionals who are fighting on the frontlines to combat and contain the viral outbreak.
RPGSHOW, a luxury wigs provider, is teaming up with its sister company, MyFirstWig, to give back to the community with a donation of vital PPE materials to various hospitals in New York City and other areas battling COVID-19. The luxury wigs retailer coordinated a donation of nearly 7,000 masks to medical professionals in New York City. This also includes 1,000 highly sought after N95 masks, 5,500 regular medical masks, and protective eyewear.
Hospitals set to receive these materials include the NYU Langone Medical Center, Mount Sinai, and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts.

Hello RPGSHOW Family These past few weeks and months have seen the world go through difficult and uncertain times. But one thing we can be sure of is that if we all stick together and support each other as a people, there is nothing we can't overcome. We wanted to share with you a bit of what we've been doing to give support to the medical heroes on the front line. Truthfully, what is needed is much more than what any one person or one company can give. But as a collective of people, businesses, and countries we can provide our front line workers with the support and supplies they need. We are currently working hard to do more. In the mean time, we hope everyone can please be safe and take care❤️ #stayhome #staysafe #quarentine #quarantineandchill #healthcareworkers #nurse #doctors #rpgshow #rpgshowwig #myfirstwig
