our Story

Love Your Melon was founded in an entrepreneurship class at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota by two friends, Zach and Brian. On a mission to improve the lives of children battling cancer since October 22nd, 2012, Love Your Melon began with the simple idea of putting a hat on every child battling cancer in America.
 
After achieving the original goal of donating 45,000 hats— one for every child battling cancer in America — Love Your Melon set a new goal of donating one million dollars to pediatric cancer research and providing immediate support to children and their families. 
 
Fifty Percent (50%) of profit from the sale of all Love Your Melon products are donated to Love Your Melon’s nonprofit partners in the fight against pediatric cancer. Our partners work in the field of pediatric oncology, fund cancer research initiatives and provide immediate support for families of children battling cancer.

To date, we have donated over 1.5 million dollars and over 80,000 hats. Let’s write the next chapter together. Join the story.
