The Magic Yarn Project , which Holly set up with friend Bree Hitchcock, launched two months ago and sees the women weave wigs out of wool in the style of popular children's fairytale characters to donate to young cancer patients.
|Three-year-old Lily's Rapunzel wig was the inspiration behind the initiative|
"She absolutely loved it and her mother expressed that it brought joy and light to an otherwise difficult and dark time during her life."
|Anna from Frozen is one of the wigs the volunteers currently make|
Realising that they could help other little girls just like Lily, Holly and a team of volunteers set about making more wigs.
|Disney princess Jasmine is just one of the characters bringing magic into little girls' lives.|
The team is currently creating Elsa, Anna, Rapunzel, Ariel, and generic “rainbow” wigs with hopes to include in the future Jasmine and Belle wigs as well.
All of the wigs are free to recipient families in hospitals across the USA. The volunteers just rely on monetary donations to pay for supplies, shipping costs and logistics.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help them realise their dream, and has already amassed over $4000 in donations.
