Brand of the Week: Headbands of Hope
We hope you’ve been enjoying Benefair so far. We’ve certainly enjoyed having you here! We’re so excited to be sharing amazing socially conscious products with you, and this is only the beginning! Every Thursday, we’ll be giving you the low down on one of the fabulous brands we carry here at Benefair, and we wanted to start off by acquainting you with Headbands of Hope.
Cute accessories and social responsibility are a few of our favourite things, so it’s no wonder that we’ve been so taken by this company. Headbands of Hope sells beautifully made headbands and other headpieces. It was founded in April 2012 by Jessica Ekstrom after she did an internship at a wish-granting organization while in college. She learned that young girls who lost their hair after chemotherapy loved to wear headbands as an expression of their style and personality, so she created Headbands of Hope to help bring hope to children battling cancer.
For every headband purchased, Headbands of Hope gives one headband to a child with cancer, and $1 from every sale is donated to one of several children’s hospital in the USA to fund life-saving cancer research and treatment. Since its inception, Headbands of Hope has donated headbands to every children's hospital in the United States! How amazing is that?!
We want to help them make the same impact for children in hospitals across Canada as one of the first stockists of Headbands of Hope in our home and native land. Your purchase of a headband through Benefair will be among the first to donate a second headband to the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton, Alberta, and given to a child with cancer that is being treated there.
Who knew it would be so easy to make such a difference in the life of a child? Just check out the smiles on these children’s faces, and learn more about what Headbands of Hope is all about:

Wishing you a wonderful day!
