Some of the most important people in this world are those that go out of their way to help children in need. That’s why we want to recognize the amazing team at Love Your Melon.
Founded by two friends, Zach and Brian, Love Your Melon has been on a mission to improve the lives of children battling cancer since October 22, 2012. It was founded on the simple concept of putting a hat on every child battling cancer in America. They also sell hats, shirts, and accessories committing fifty percent of net proceeds on every Love Your Melon product sold to the Pinky Swear Foundation and CureSearch.
“On December 18, 2012, we got to go to our first hospital donation event and it was then that we knew how cool this idea was. Seeing the smiles on the kids faces that day was incredible so we kept making the hats,” says co-founder, Zach.
To date, more than 2,500 college students from over 225 different schools across the nation have signed on as ambassadors to sell and donate hats. This includes a group of students at Virginia Tech.
You can help too! Visit www.loveyourmelon.com for more information or to purchase a hat, shirt, or accessory of your own. Portions of the proceeds from your purchase will go to help cancer research initiatives and provide immediate support for families impacted by childhood cancer.
