To create magic in the lives of children battling cancer and to inspire volunteerism to help make a difference.
Not so long ago, two moms started a project to make a few dozen princess yarn wigs for young girls battling cancer.
Chemotherapy treatments often leave young scalps too sensitive for traditional wigs. Our 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 beacons of fun, laughter, and play, during scary times.
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!
