Hey guys! Happy Monday! How was your weekend? We had a pretty good weekend over here… it included much needed rain, a little CrossFit workout named FRAN (if you don’t know, Fran is one of the most notorious CrossFit workouts. It’s killer. 21-15-9 Thrusters and Pull ups), 2 seasons of The Colony on Netflix and a 2.3 mile run on Sunday.
Today I have something special to share with you. I starting noticing some other bloggers talking about Headbands of Hope and I was intrigued. After looking into it I knew I had to share it too. Headbands of Hope is a handmade business that sells Headbands (obviously).
It was started by Jessica Ekstrom after a summer of interning with the Make a Wish Foundation (Check out this blog post she wrote about one of her experiences, so moving). She knew she wanted to do something to help fight childhood cancer. For every headband that is sold by headbands of Hope she donates $1 to the St Baldricks Foundation AND a headband is given to a girl who is fighting Cancer.
It came with information about the St Baldricks Foundation, which was great because I got to learn more about what I was helping to support.
I ordered the Go Glitter band in White. It is soft and stretchy and holds my hair back even during a sweaty workout!
The only thing I wish I would have thought of was that I have Red highlights and when I sweat they kinda turned the headband pink in some spots… oops! It’s ok, I love pink too 😉
Disclaimer- I purchased the headband with my own money and was touched by the story so I wanted to share it. I wasn’t compensated in any way for this blog post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
