When you’re a kid, nothing beats dressing up as your favorite character.
For me, it was the Tin Man from “The Wizard of Oz” (pretending to be rusted in place is surprisingly fun) or Raphael from the Ninja Turtles. For lots of kids, though, the absolute pinnacle of dress-up is getting decked out like a Disney Princess.
This one simple fact led Holly Christensen and Bree Hitchcock to a wonderful idea for those kids who really need some cheering up.
That’s according to the GoFundMe page set up by the two women. But, wow, is that an understatement.
These aren’t just any wigs. They’re wigs that make kids feel like their favorite princess, whether that’s Elsa of “Frozen” fame or Ariel from “The Little Mermaid.”
And they should win the award for Cutest Things Ever in an unprecedented landslide.
And the coolest part? These wigs aren’t just adorable; they’re practical.
Holly and Bee are raising money for the supplies needed to make even more princess wigs, which they give away for free.
They’re even trying to launch Magic Yarn as a genuine nonprofit to amplify their reach. And good thing, too — over 10,000 children under the age of 15 will be diagnosed with cancer this year.
That’s a lot of brave kids who need people like Holly and Bree in their corner.
“To bring a little bit of magic into such a difficult time in their life is so rewarding,” Holly says. “It’s almost equally been so rewarding and magical to meet people who want to help.”
