Mask Chapter Promo
by Laurie Leon
The Cincinnati Chapter store has a new item to share to fit into the new normal. We have new homemade CISV masks available to purchase for $10 each. This covers the special designed fabric, production cost, postage, delivery, and is a fundraiser for CISV Cincinnati. Just think about the possibilities. You could order one for yourself, a friend, and so much more. They ship easily and you could check on friends that you have met along your CISV journeys in other countries and send them one. Every country has had to mask up for this virus. Let’s share ways to stay safe and smile with our CISV message. Click here to place your order!
