Getting kids to wear a hat during the winter is an exercise in futility. But with the beanies from Love Your Melon, you won’t have that worry anymore. Now your kid can keep his head warm during the winter months — and help kids with cancer, too. The apparel brand recently partnered with Disney, Pixar, and Star Wars to create stylish options for children with cancer—and kids everywhere.
Love Your Melon has one goal: to improve the lives of kids with cancer. The company’s recent collaboration with Disney, Pixar, and Star Wars is nothing short of fantastic and fashionable. The collection currently has 16 different types of beanies for both boys and girls. Some are straight beanies that have the unmistakable Mickey Mouse logo, while others are adorably adorned with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse pom pom ears.
These hats are super cute, so if you secretly want to snatch your child’s beanies off his head, you’re in luck. The line comes in both adult and kid sizes, meaning you can swap beanies with your babes. The beanies retail for $40, while the Double Pom Beanies retail for $65.
Since 2012, Love Your Melon has donated more than $6.2 million to the fight against pediatric cancer. An additional 170,000 hats have also been given to kids who are battling cancer. When you buy a Love Your Melon hat, 50% of your purchase goes to Love Your Melon Fund to its support nonprofit partners in the fight against pediatric cancer. It also helps to create therapeutic experiences and fund charitable programming initiatives for children and families battling cancer.
“Love Your Melon is dedicated to giving a hat to every child battling cancer and has given 6.2 million dollars to pediatric cancer research. By incorporating Disney, Pixar, and Star Wars characters into our products, we are able to expand our product collection for our supporters globally,” said Zachary Quinn, President at Love Your Melon. He co-founded the company with Brian Keller in 2012 as a way to put a hat on every child in the U.S. battling cancer.
The Disney x Love Your Melon product collaboration will run through 2021. So there’s no time like the present to purchase a Love Your Melon beanie with Mickey or Minnie Mouse on it — and show your support for critically ill kids who are in the fight for their life.
