My name is Jessica Ekstrom (you can call me Jess).
During the summer of 2011, I did an internship at a wish-granting organization.
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 35,000 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.
Let's spread hope in all kids...one headband at a time.
