Gosh, stories like this get me jazzed. I love hearing about someone seeing a problem and rushing in with a solution. Headbands of Hope does just that. Jess at North Carolina State University came up with an idea of creating headbands for children in need after an internship with Make A Wish Foundation. She saw how low a girl's self-esteem can be after shaving her head for chemotherapy. Her solution? Give them headbands!

With each headband purchased through Headbands of Hope, a girl facing cancer receives a headband of her choice. AND $1 is donated to St. Baldrick's Foundation to find a cure. Their motto: "Headbands of Hope aims to start with awareness and end with a cure."

I love what this company does. Who wouldn't want a cute headband and on top of that, who wouldn't want to help a sweet little girl facing something that no one should have to face? I hope you check them out and even purchase one! You can also sign up for their newsletter too!
