Knit princess wigs for cancer patients
Every so often we come across a truly uplifting story, and this is definitely one of them.
When the daughter of Holly Christensen’s friend was diagnosed with cancer, Holly knew she had to do something to help. When she realized that the little girl would likely lose her hair during treatment, she had a stroke of brilliance, and The Magic Yarn Project was born.
The idea behind The Magic Yarn Project is that volunteers donate their time to making beautiful yarn wigs based on famous Disney characters. This allows the girls to have the hair of their on-screen heroes.
Materials are paid for via a GoFundMe page, which as of today has reached over $41,000 (£31,000). More than 600 volunteers have gathered together to make over 950 princess wigs. Click here to read more about The Magic Yarn Project and to donate.
