Happy Badger Headbands are handmade headbands made by me, Justine (after learning all the best tricks from the original creator, Logan). A portion of every sale helps support patients and families with a cancer diagnosis receiving treatment in Madison, WI.
The headbands were made initially to meet the needs of active women sick of boring, hard to style headbands that slipped off their heads. They're super soft and stretchy for comfortable all day wear, with a fit that stays put. Plus, they can be worn five different ways! Said simply - Happy Badger Headbands are the best headbands handmade in the badger state.
Happy Badger Headbands quickly became more than headbands. It was started by an oncology nurse who was passionate about not only helping her patients, but her coworkers as well! She had been listening to and loving these people going through one of the hardest walks of life wishing there was more that could be done. Insert Happy Badger Headbands. Since inception, HBH has donated thousands of dollars to help patients pay for necessities like prescription co-pays, groceries, gas. In addition, HBH uses funds to buy other comfort items for the inpatient unit, and to "adopt a family" to fund holiday shopping in December. When HBH began, no one could have never anticipate what the year 2020 would bring. In what was a dark year, the ability to go the extra mile for a complete stranger has been such a light on the unit, and continues to do so. It's made a difference - not just for patients, but for their healthcare providers as well.
At Happy Badger Headbands we create awesome accessories and apparel. But more importantly, we "band together" to show up for patients with small gestures that affect them in big ways, and to support families who could use a little extra love. Maybe Mother Theresa herself said it best, "There are no great acts, only small acts done with great love."
Thanks for being here, you make all the difference.
