A 21-year-old student at Eastern Kentucky University decided to help out the deaf and hard of hearing by creating face masks that are usable for people who speak American Sign Language. Traditional masks are difficult for people who rely on ASL (American Sign Language), because facial expressions are imperative for communication.
The student, Ashley Lawrence, has received support on social media from celebrities like John Krasinski, who featured her on his Some Good News show. Plus, she's raised over $3,000 on her Go Fund Me to donate masks to the people who need them.
John Krasinski featured Lawrence's masks on his new positive news show.
Krasinski is all about spreading positive news on his recent video series, "Some Good News," on YouTube. The actor has been reporting on all things positive and included Lawrence's masks on his second episode. The episode also featured a reunion from the Hamilton cast, who performed their opening number for a fan who missed out on an opportunity to see the show live.
