Home > Headbands of Hope

As a college student, Jess Ekstrom interned at a wish-granting
organization for kids with life threatening illnesses. She noticed that a
lot of the kids loved to wear headbands after hair loss from
chemotherapy. Armed with inspiration, Jess founded Headbands of
Hope during her junior year in 2012. For every headband sold, a headband
is given to a child with cancer. HOH has grown to impact hundreds of
thousands of people with a simple accessory, but it all started with a
single idea to act.
