Frankel’s emergency relief organization, BStrong, donates 1 million masks to hospitals and doctors to help make up for the supply shortage.

“Every time there is a disaster, I really hear from my followers on social media,” says Frankel told RADIO.com. “They’re all over the world and sometimes they let me know what’s going on faster than the news. So a few people were talking about the masks. “

The former Real Housewives of New York City star said she was heard from a large number of people.

“I get more than a thousand messages daily with people from all over the country – every hospital, every clinic, everyone panicking and out of supplies,” she said.

Frankel, 49, originally planned to donate 10,000 masks, People volunteered last week, but that number rose to 150,000, according to Radio.com.

The reality star also says the masks will arrive in hospitals across the country in a matter of days, and she uses a grid system to determine the most efficient way to properly distribute the masks.

“We don’t have red tape and we go very fast,” she said.

Frankel also said she works with suppliers from all over the world.
