Minnesota Company “Love Your Melon” Is Growing By Leaps and Bounds, Helping Kids with Cancer
Very few company's make me feel truly inspired, but I have to say I have found one that really does, it's called Love Your Melon. Not only do they make a variety of really cool hats, they do it for an amazing cause. For every hat you purchase one is donated to a child battling cancer, plus so much more.
The backstory of how this company started is pretty cool as well. In 2012 two college students Zach and Brian started the company 'LOVE YOUR MELON" for a entrepreneurship class at The University of St. Thomas in St. Paul . They were on a mission to improve the lives of kids battling cancer with the simple idea of making cool and comfortable hats for them to wear.
After their first hospital visit and seeing the smiles on the kids faces, they knew they were on to something. Fast forward three years with the help of College students around the country that they call Ambassadors, thousands of children have been on the receiving end of these hats and more. Everybody needs a hat and now they have expanded to baseball hats too. This is a great gift idea and for such an awesome cause. :)
