Bendigo's Jeanette Bennett has been working to make more than 700 eye soothing pillows to help frontline workers.
"I was watching the project one night and one of the nurses was in tears because she was so tired, felt unappreciated and undervalued," Ms Bennett said.
"I also saw one from the Bendigo hospital speaking the other day and she said she felt the same way.
"So I sent the hospital an email and said I'd found these little patterns for soothing eye pillows and asked if they would accept them if I made them."
"The lady from the hospital said they would be more than happy to accept them because they felt no one cared, I wanted them to know I was at least one person that did."
So Ms Bennett got to work and has now made 750 masks to send to Bendigo Health, St John of God Hospital and plans to make more for ambulance workers and more.
