While on a ski trip over the weekend (my legs are still pretty sore, but it was absolutely amazing)! I noticed a friend of mine was wearing a pretty rad beanie. So, as I do, I asked where she picked it up and was introduced to Love Your Melon. Founded by two University of St. Thomas students in the fall of 2012, Zach and Brian set out with the initial mission to provide a hat for every child cancer patient in America. Fast forward five years and they have since donated over 45,000 hats and expanded their mission to include providing financial support for the organizations leading the fight against pediatric cancer. To date, they have raised over 2.5 million dollars for pediatric cancer research and have donated to organizations like St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and The University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital. They offer a ton of beanie colors in varying styles including cuffed and pomed beanies in addition to some rad accessories and apparel. Check them out to be prepared for any impending snowstorms, ski trips or bad hair days...all while helping further pediatric cancer research.
