If you're looking for a story that gives all the feels, look no further ladybird. For every adorable hair accessory purchased, Headbands of Hope gives one to a child with cancer. And how befitting that bossbabe founder Jess Ekstrom got her inspiration from the most magical place on earth--Disney World of course.
When she was there on a photography internship, she photographed kids with life-threatening illnesses who wanted to visit Disney World as their main wish from wish-granting organizations.
Jess noticed a lot of the kids were wearing headbands after losing their hair to chemotherapy. She felt a spark to do something to help them feel confident and beautiful during such a tough time. To fulfill this need, she created Headbands of Hope during her junior year of college at North Carolina State University.
FOR EVERY HEADBAND SHE'D SELL, SHE'D DONATE A HEADBAND TO A CHILD WITH CANCER.
Headbands of Hope is now carried in thousands of stores across the world and has been supported by dozens of celebrities like Lea Michele and Lauren Conrad. And more importantly, the brand has donated headbands to every children's hospital in America and 15 countries.
They offer some seriously cute accessories, from boho chic headpieces to wraps and beanies. And friends, they even have a monthly headband subscription! To check out their amazing designs visit https://www.headbandsofhope.com/.
