OR EVERY ITEM SOLD, A HEADBAND IS DONATED TO A CHILD WITH AN ILLNESSAbout the collab: There are certain medical conditions that children with Down Syndrome have a higher chance of facing than their typically developing peers. The more severe include heart defects resulting in open heart surgery (25%) and although rare (1%) Leukemia. Others that can be common but more easily managed are: Sleep apnea- difficulty breathing while sleeping. Dysphagia- swallow disfunction where thin liquids go to the lungs instead of down the esophagus. Hypotonia- low muscle tone which requires children to receive physical therapy and sometimes orthotic braces for support in walking. 21 Pineapples and Headbands of Hope have teamed up to bring awareness to these children by developing an exclusive hair accessory line. For every 21 Pineapples by Headbands of Hope product purchased, one will be donated to a child with down syndrome who is currently up against any number of medical challenges like those mentioned above. Both organizations live for the mission that being a good human through small acts of kindness can make a big impact.
