CAMPUS SPEAK: Headbands for Hope
Posted on in Common Ground
Inspired by a summer internship at a wish-granting organization, Jess saw a lot of kids loved to wear headbands after losing their hair to chemotherapy. She did a google search and realized that there were no businesses donating headbands to kids with cancer, only wigs and hats. Jess started Headbands of Hope out of her dorm room in college with two headbands, her computer, and a burning passion to help these kids (and a lot of coffee).
Today, Headbands of Hope is carried in thousands of stores across the world. They’ve been featured on the TODAY Show, Good Morning America, Vanity Fair, Seventeen Magazine, and even supported by celebrities like Lea Michele, Lauren Conrad, Kelsea Ballerini, Lili Reinhart and more.
But more importantly, Headbands of Hope has donated headbands to every children’s hospital in America and 15 countries. When you order a headband, you’ll even receive a donation confirmation stating the exact hospital your purchase benefitted.
