Limited Edition: Adult Millie Smile Mask
Award-winning actress Millicent Simmonds partnered with Rafi Nova to create a limited-edition "Millie Smile Mask" with 100% of the profits benefiting Deaf Women of Color and Texas Hands and Voices.
The gifted performer loved how Rafi Nova's original Smile Mask restored visual cues like lip-reading and facial expressions to communicate.
We invited the 17-year-old actress, who is deaf, to design one to benefit the deaf and hard of hearing community and increase awareness of the limitations traditional masks present for the community.
The Millie Smile Mask features a custom floral print taken from an artwork that this actress painted for her mother, Emily, and a 'Rafi Nova x Millie' tag with her distinct autograph.
All proceeds benefit two causes important to Millie - Black Lives Matter, and families with deaf children.
- Each product labeled "bundle" includes a Smile Mask (either Tie-Behind or Ear Loops), an Everyday Mask, and an anti-fog solution
