13-year old Hime Takimoto saw the long lines of people in front of drugstores waiting for surgical masks that had already sold out and noticed the profiteering going on in selling them on auction and flea market sites on the Net.

She decided to do something about it and asked her mom to withdraw her savings. She took her savings and purchased fabric and mask-making materials and began to sew. She managed to make 612 cloth masks and attached handwritten messages to each one expressing her hopes that they would be of some help.

She took her hand-sewn masks and gave them to Mayor Nagasaki of Yamanashi Prefecture, who gratefully accepted them and promised to distribute them to elderly and children’s institutions.

The photo in the Japanese article shows her donating her masks on March 17th.

心温まる話

13歳の女子中学生の滝本妃(ひめ)が自分の小遣いを出金して612枚のマスクを作った。完成したマスクを山梨県に贈った。

今の時代には彼女のような若者がいると聞くと言葉が出ないほど嬉しい!
