I found that girls loved to wear headbands after losing their hair to chemotherapy. Therefore, during my junior year of college, I founded Headbands of Hope.
For every headband purchased, one is given to a girl with cancer and $1 is donated to a childhood cancer organization of your choice.
Since I launched Headbands of Hope in April 2012, we've donated over 20,000 headbands to girls who deserve them. We've even started a boys line of buffs!
I didn't have a business degree. I didn't know how to manufacture a product. All I had was an idea and the passion behind it. Read more about my journey on my blog or let's chat on your campus.
