  1. I would like to see this reviewed! I love headbands but not sure if the ones in this subscription would be geared more towards a younger crowd or appropriate for a woman in her 30s who loves headbands. I think it sounds like a fair price for 3 quality headbands with 3 donated.

  2. My agreement is twds Beth’s comment. Not belittling any company, to each their own. I would just rather buy cheaper but still super stylish and cute headbands and still have plenty $$ leftover for my donations. Hence, I donate directly since my family has been effected by the c word multiple times. 💞

  3. For context, let me preface this by saying that I’m a bleeding heart liberal and I regularly donate to a large number of charitable organisations.

    But I like to choose what organisations I donate to based on my priorities and the organisation’s past performance. So it really annoys me when sub boxes do something like this – and force charity donations that often end up benefitting the company much more than anyone else. They inflate prices on boxes so they can boost their production (benefitting them), then advertise that they are promoting charity (benefitting them), and then get the tax advantages, as well (again benefitting them, not the subscribers who are in fact paying for their charity donation).

    My own mother died of cancer when I was 15, so I am not unsympathetic. But I agree with Traci – if they want to charge subscribers so much more so that they can make a difference, they need to do more than donate headbands. Any funds I have to devote to the cause will go to research, not headbands. So thanks, but this box is a definite no for me.

    • I like everything you just said!

    • Headbands of Hope is not a Non Profit Organization, they do not receive any tax breaks than any other company. They follow the same business model as TOMs shoes. In fact, they operate like any other business does in the United States except they choose to give back to a cause that they are passionate about, this is not something that they have to do, the choose to. This wonderful organization has donated over $100,000 headbands across the United States and made thousands and thousands of girls across the country.

      If you read in the fine print, the box IS INDEED worth $70 if you look into the website. That $70 includes not only the cost of 3 headbands, but also the cost of the box itself (which nothing in this world is free) and shipping, which is usually $3.50. Oh let’s not forget about a free gift that you receive and any other promo materials. Please do your research. Also, if they donate a headband, that’s cost out of their pocket as well.

      This world is full of businesses that don’t give back at all. I’m not sure why people have to belittle a business that is trying to do good in this world where there is so much hate.

    • Also, please read that they donate THREE headbands when your purchase the box, not just ONE. What more do you want them to donate?

    • AGREED!!!

  4. My daughter was given a headband from this organization when she fought cancer the first time at the age of 3. It made her very happy to be able to have something pretty on her head even though she had no hair.

    • That’s really cool!

  5. Seems a bit pricey for three headbands or hairclips. It seems the extra money could go towards more than headbands for cancer kids IMO

    • The website claims that the items in the box are discounted an average of 50%, which…just no. There’s no way the three headbands in that box above are worth $70. I think the organization might do better by offering the subscription as a way to intentionally donate to a worthy cause (and get headbands as a perk), as opposed to artificially inflating the value of the items and try to convince subscribers they’re getting a bargain.

      • Technically, it’d be six headbands/hair clips worth $70, since you receive 3 pieces, and 3 headbands are donated.

        • Exactly! I find it hard to believe that there’s much profit for the company in that as well.
