Gift Idea that Gives Back: Headbands of Hope!




"Entrepreneur, fashion designer, philanthropist and college senior Jessica Ekstrom, 21, has created a line of vibrantly colored headbands to help young girls with cancer. After an inspirational internship with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and meeting several young girls with cancer, Jessica saw firsthand how much losing their hair during chemotherapy treatments affected the girls’ self-esteem and confidence. She wanted to give them something to boost their spirits and make them smile when they looked in the mirror. That inspiration led to the creation of Headbands of Hope, an organization with a mission to fund research for childhood cancer and spread hope in all girls, one headband at a time.

Each time a headband is purchased, Headbands of Hope sends a headband to a girl with cancer, and for the sale of each headband $1 is donated to the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to fund life-saving childhood cancer research. See all of the fun styles of headbands available at www.headbandsofhope.org. For more information about the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, visit www.StBaldricks.org."

What we thought:  The headband we received was so cute and really well-made!  This is a great organization that is dedicated to raising money for a great cause.  We love giving gifts that give back and Headbands of Hope is a wonderful organization to support this holiday season while spreading cheer with some really cute hair accessories!  They make great stocking stuffers:)  ABCD Diaries gives Headbands of Hope an A+!
