Requester Terms and Conditions

Agreement by medical professionals, first responders, and related organizations [must click “I agree” button]:

  • I understand that Sewing For Lives matches independent volunteer sewers of homemade cloth mask covers (“CMCs”) with medical and first responder professionals and organizations that request them (“requestors”). The volunteer sewers make the CMCs at their own expense, using their own supplies. The volunteer sewers ship the CMCs directly to requestors. Shipping carrier, speed, and payment method are decided and handled by the requestor and the volunteer sewer. Sewing For Lives does not inspect the CMCs or warranty their fitness for any purpose. Sewing For Lives cannot guarantee that every request will be filled.
  • CMCs are not considered personal protective equipment (“PPE”), since their capability to protect healthcare providers and others is unknown. Caution should be exercised when considering this option.
  • CMCs are used at my (or my organization’s) discretion, and I (or my organization) am solely responsible for determining the appropriateness of using CMCs for any purpose.
  • It is solely my (or my organization’s) responsibility to decide whether to issue CMCs (or other potentially protective gear such as surgical masks or N95 masks), and to whom.
  • UPON RECEIPT AND PRIOR TO USE of any CMCs, I (or my organization) will handle the package in which the CMCs arrive, and the CMCs themselves, with appropriate PPE and in accordance with guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”).
  • PRIOR TO USE, I (or my organization) will SANITIZE the CMCs in accordance with CDC guidelines (see, for example, https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/cleaning-disinfection.html).
  • PRIOR TO USE, I (or my organization) will INSPECT all CMCs for defects and design variance. CMCs materials and design may vary.
  • I (or my organization’s) shipping address, email address, and name will be given to volunteer sewers who will be sending CMCs directly to me. This information will be shared with volunteers and may be publicly visible on the Saving For Lives website. I acknowledge and accept that my (or my organization’s) request, name of organization, designated email address, and number of masks requested will be published on Sewingforlives.com for volunteers to get CMC orders and fulfill them.
  • I (or my organization) will refer to the CDC for updated information about the appropriateness of using CMCs.
  • I (or my organization) hereby hold Sewing For Lives harmless for any injury, up to and including death, that occurs to me or others as a result of my use of the CMCs.
  • Further, I (or my organization) hereby agree to indemnify and defend Sewing For Lives from any liability associated with my use of the CMCs, including but not limited to liability arising as a result of my failure to abide by any of the above provisions.
