Providing ASTM Level 2 Medical Masks
- Doing Our Part
We have temporarily stopped our work and are trying to get these into the hands, and face, of those that need them. Our healthcare workers are at risk and they are our frontline ‘soldiers’ in this war. They are protecting us without the necessary supplies, put themselves in harms way for each one of us. This is how we can help.
One of our Chinese suppliers can now produce 800k FDA approved ASTM Level 2 medical masks per day.
They have asked if I can help them supply these in the US as they have no contacts here.
Clearly this is outside our normal leadership development and philanthropic conference business work but I want to help any way I can right now.
This webpage was set up to help provide some clarity and confidence for your purchase of these masks. Speed, not beauty, was the goal here.
Below is information for healthcare use and personal use.

Currently the production capacity is available for daily manufacturing (April-7-2020). You can expect to receive your materials in hand 7 to 10 days after you order:
- Manufacturing is 1 day.
- Preparing for shipment is 1 day.
- Shipping is 5 days.
This does not include any customs or shipping delays outside of our control. We will do everything we can to get this to you as quickly as possible.
Product is shipped in cases of 2,000 units. Drop-ship direct from China must be at least 10,000 units.
Orders less than 10,000 units outside Colorado will have additional shipping time and cost.
Volume dictates pricing, from $1.00 for a single mask to $.73 each for 10,000,000.
Pricing includes all shipping, duties and any fees.
We are selling these masks to individuals in multiples of 10 for $10, so they are $1.00 each.
The factory packages them in plastic in bundles of 10 and we want to keep out any contamination from opening the plastic wrapping.
What is a ASTM Level 2 mask? See the graphic so you can understand where these fit. You may not need one!
This is a great guide to difference levels of mask protection. This guide is NOT from our manufacturer but from a company called Crosstex ( we don’t want confusion).
If you want to reuse your mask, don’t.
The CDC recommends these are one-time use masks and are not respirators like an N95.
See the image to the right, ‘Understanding the difference’. Clicking on that image will open a new window to the CDC’s website.
Use this medical mask when you go out into the community and throw it away when you get home. Keep all contaminants outside your home.
If you want a reusable mask, consider buying some of the cloth masks that people are making locally in almost every community.
Buy several of the cloth masks, if you want those, so you can wash the one you just used outside. Those would be minimum/low performance on the Face Mask Guide but are perfectly fine for most people.
If you are immune-compromised, over 60 or have underlying health issues, buying some medical-grade masks is the best level of protection for you. We will be taking orders over the weekend and it takes 5 days for them to arrive. I know, that seems like forever, but that is what we have to work with at the moment. Below are photos of what a bundle of 10 looks like as well and the Face Mask guide.
To purchase for personal use, we are using Venmo, BeLegendary007. Last four digits of my phone that you need is 5703.
Venmo the amount, in multiples of 10 and I will reach out to get your email address. When they arrive, we will set up a distribution method that is as low-contact as possible or maybe deliver them. If you want them shipped outside Boulder, CO, there will be an additional shipping fee.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many masks do we have in stock?

Where are they coming from?
These are coming from the Gaoming District Foshan, Gouangdong China right now.
How long will they take to get to me?
Shipping takes 7-10 days from the date of order with a volume of at least 10,000. We are working on getting a stock here in the US to make this faster.
Minimum Order quantity?
Minimum order for personal use is 10. Minimum order for direct shipping to you is a case of 2,000. Orders less than 10,000 will have additional shipping time and cost.
Type of mask?
These are ASTM Level 2 masks, commonly known at ‘Surgical Masks’ or medical masks. These are most often used in surgery.
Yes, please see the FDA Certification above that you can open into a PDF. Also, you can see they are listed in the FDA database of registered manufacturers
Cost per mask?
Cost depends upon volume, from $1.00 per mask to $.71 per mask for large volumes.
Does the cost include Shipping?
Yes and no.
- If you are ordering a case of 2,000.
- If you are ordering at least 10,000.
No – if you are ordering less than 2,000 and are NOT in Boulder, there is an additional shipping fee and time.
Is it possible these are contaminated with COVID-19 since they are manufactured in China?
These masks are manufactured in a clean, FDA-approved facility which makes it less likely.
Also, this factory is roughly 600 miles from Wuhan and the Hubei province. China shut down that province very early and minimized travel which makes it less likely of contamination.
