Headbands of Hope started out in a college dorm room in 2012 when founder Jess Ekstrom saw an important void that needed to be filled for kids battling cancer. Ekstrom had no idea how to start and run a business, but what she did know was she would find a way! Fast forward to 2018 and Headbands of Hope has been able to donate 330,155 headbands (173,800 in 2018 alone!) to children all over the world! They have donated headbands to every single children's hospital in America. For every item sold, a headband is given to a child with cancer.
The retail store gets to choose where the donated headbands from their orders are sent and we are very proud to say that your orders will benefit the children at Children's National in Washington D.C.
