Mission Statement

To create magic in the lives of children battling cancer and to inspire volunteerism to help make a difference.

Description

Not so long ago, two moms started a project to make a few dozen princess wigs for young girls battling cancer. Chemotherapy treatments leave young scalps too sensitive for traditional wigs, but yarn-wigs are comfy, soft, and warm. Magic yarn wigs are inspired by beloved Disney characters, and invite children back to the world of play and daydreaming. They are a beacon of fun, laughter, and play during a scary time.

The Magic Yarn Project has received coverage by over a hundred internet media sources, magazines, and local news stories. The demand for magic wigs grows daily! Every year, roughly 83,000 young girls, ages 2-10, are diagnosed with cancer (5,000 in the US).

Due to the popularity of these wigs, The Magic Yarn Project was born, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Our growing organization is funded solely by donations and we are entirely volunteer based!
