Small Town Company Performs Big-time Act of Kindness

A small clothing company in Ashland, OR has donated ten $150 gift certificates to nominated health care workers during this time of crisis.


Everyone knows at least one health care worker who is currently working overtime, traveling to a hot spot or tirelessly putting themselves at risk to serve our communities during this health crisis. Some of them are dear friends, spouses, and neighbors. All of them deserve extra love and appreciation during this time.

YALA Designs LLC has found a way to help. This bamboo-fiber clothing and bedding business from Ashland, OR, gave away ten $150 YALA gift certificates to health care workers through customer nominations. Their social media followers were able to nominate someone who is currently working in any capacity at hospitals, clinics, or testing centers throughout the US, via links on YALA on Facebook or YALA on Instagram.

On April 6th, YALA randomly selected five nominees from Facebook and five nominees from Instagram for ten recipients total. They each received a $150 YALA Gift Card to redeem for something to bring them some comfort between shifts. Of course, our deepest comfort lies in connection. To be seen and appreciated and cared for. That’s what gets us through the hard times.

Here’s a special thanks to the winners across the country:

Sandra Mccarty Schlegler – Health Care Worker at a Nursing Home in Ohio.
Amanda Driggers — FNP at Cooperative Health, South Carolina.
Kelsey Strouse — An ICU CNA in Southern Oregon.
Jesse Davidson – An OR Nurse at Providence Portland Medical Center in Portland, OR.
Geoffrey Wunn – An RN at Oregon Health and Science University.
Katie katiec536 — a First Year Resident from Tulane, LA.
Leslie Ann — a Nurse Leader at Providence Hospital, Medford, OR.
Amber Rowland — An RN at Saint Cloud Hospital, MN who is currently pregnant herself!
Mahsa Esfahani — an Emergency Medicine Doctor at Good Samaritan Hospital in San Jose, CA.
Erin Somogyi — a Cardiac Intensive Care Nurse at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center in Medford, OR.
