swine flu fashion

With the swine flu scare spreading like crazy, people are starting to take their precautions.  Some are keeping the germs away (or maybe from spreading germs as well) by wearing a surgical mask which I've definitely started seeing on the subway.  Designer Irina Block has come up with these fun designs for surgical masks in lieu of the current scare and is selling a limited amount for $10 a piece with the proceeds going to Children International to help Mexico fight the swine flu. (thanks Stella for the tip!)
