The Magic Yarn Project
Based in Palmer, Alaska, The Magic Yarn Project is the original and the largest 501(c)3 nonprofit crafting character wigs for children with cancer. Our mission is to bring magic into the lives of children battling cancer, and to inspire volunteerism to make a difference. 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 imagination and daydreaming. They are beacons of fun, laughter, and play during scary times.
NOTE: You do not have to know how to crochet to volunteer/donate. Find out more ways to help on the website!
