Someone sent a mask to every mailbox on Bowen Island

Suspects include Batman and Spider-man

Superheroes may be the thing of comic books but Bowen has its own masked hero.

In an act of COVID kindness, someone(s) bought masks to be delivered into every Bowen mailbox this week.

While some perplexed islanders took to Facebook, initially wondering if the masks were delivered to the wrong addresses, it soon came out that they were in fact, no mistake.

As who is behind the masks is a secret, some on Facebook speculated that it was Batman or Spider-Man who paid the island a visit.

“In these challenging times, the masks are a simple gesture intended to help our community stay safe and healthy,” said the masked do-gooder in a message to the Undercurrent. “The act itself is aimed at lifting spirts and promoting kindness.

“‘Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world,’[as Desmond Tutu said] seems highly appropriate given current world events,” said the donor(s).

Masks have already been spotted out and about as more islanders don their COVID protective gear. 

“The ripple effect of kindness has already begun,” said the donor(s). “No act of kindness is ever too small.

“Also, the Batman comments have totally made my year!”
