Mark Wahlberg thanks educators in the US for their perseverance and dedication during the COVID-19 pandemic. He also donates more than a million face masks to protect teachers and their students at risk.
Wahlberg’s activewear brand Performance Inspired recently partnered with active lifestyle brand LifeToGo to donate 1.3 million disposable face masks to low-income schools in the United States.
“This is a great opportunity to work with LifeToGo to help our students and educators across the country stay healthy and safe so they can focus on education,”
Wahlberg, Performance Inspired and LifeToGo worked with school districts in select cities to identify low-income, vulnerable schools that could best use donations for face masks. So far, more than 1.3 million students and teachers have received the three-layer disposable masks from Wahlberg and Co. Some of the counties that will receive the generous assistance include schools in Boise, ID; Chicago, IL; Cincinnati, OH; Grand Rapids, MI; Minneapolis, MN; Portland, OR and San Antonio, TX.
To announce the campaign and fundraiser, Wahlberg posted a video message thanking key workers and teachers.

“As you know, this has been a year of change and stress for everyone,” Wahlberg says in the video. “But today I would like to thank our important employees. You kept us healthy and safe and provided us with all our necessities. “
Wahlberg includes teachers and educators in this thank you message and draws attention to an often overlooked “essential” profession.
“Every day brings a new challenge, but we continue to pray for you and your families,” Wahlberg added. “And please know that your efforts will be greatly appreciated.”
Social efforts are central to Wahlberg’s Performance Inspired brand. Currently, two percent of Performance Inspired’s net income goes directly to charity.
