Like most of us, Lynda Carter, TV’s iconic Wonder Woman, is doing her part to stay safe and protect others around her during this COVID-19 pandemic. Who knew in doing so, she’d not only have such a strong impact on one woman, but that woman would turn around and touch her right back.
Lynda Carter Masks Up
The actress took to her Twitter account to talk about a recent experience she had when buying a new mask — one with a familiar logo on it.
“When I ordered this fabulous Wonder Woman mask on @Etsy, I was surprised and delighted to receive this beautiful, heartfelt letter from Angelina, who runs [the store],” the actress wrote, adding a photo of the Wonder Woman mask and the letter she mentioned.
In the note, the owner of the Etsy store thanked Carter for ordering a mask and for being a major influence on her life.
“On and off screen, you are the woman who inspired me,” she wrote. “I raised two amazing Wonder Women. My youngest (18) is a new marine and air crew (mechanic for helicopters). My other is saving the world one ultrasound at a time.”
Carter was so pleased to get the letter and reminded people how important it is to support small and local businesses at a time like this. “When you #ShopSmall, you make personal connections & build communities,” Carter wrote. “That’s worth every penny.”
Wearing a Wonder Woman mask has been a theme for Carter throughout the pandemic. This summer, the actress posted a photo of another mask that was worn to support a good cause.
“Right now, all of us have a simple but crucial civic duty to wear a mask when going out in public,” Carter said at the time. “Today I’m wearing a Wonder Woman-inspired mask made by Clothe Your Mouth, which donates proceeds to a featured nonprofit. Civic duty + good cause = win/win!”
Carter has also been hyping the new Wonder Woman 1984 movie that comes out this month on HBO MAX, and don’t be surprised if she makes a cameo in the much-anticipated sequel.
