Anna's Bandanas

Imagine you are a young child recovering from brain surgery. You look in the mirror and you see that half your hair has been shaved off and it has been replaced with a long, red scar. Although you’re glad that the surgery went well, you’re disheartened by the way you look. That’s exactly what happened to Anna, a patient with a brain tumor, who timidly asked a nurse for a bandana to cover her head.

Inspired by Anna, we are launching Anna’s Bandanas to help cheer up children who have had brain surgery. We have created a bright, colorful tie-dye bandana that will work for both boys and girls, and is sure to brighten up their day, and yours!

The bandanas are made of 100% cotton and are individually tie-dyed, by hand, by a small family business in Georgia, USA.

For every $10 you donate, NOF gives a bandana to a child.

Giving back to Jax, is definitely a no-brainer! Over the years, NOF relied on local businesses and the Jacksonville community as a whole to help in its mission. The generosity of these businesses and individuals has helped make NOF what it is today. During this unprecedented time, many of them are now hurting. It is NOF’s turn to rise and help members of the community. We invite all of you to be one with us in keeping Jax strong as it fights against COVID-19. 

One of the ways we are doing this is by re-purposing our existing stock of Anna’s Bandanas to be sewn as masks and donate to healthcare workers. 

You may still donate to Anna’s Bandanas so we may have bandanas to give to a child in the future. Thank you!
