The Pink Bandanas Junior Guild is a group of 11-12 year old girls who raise money for pediatric brain tumor research at Seattle Children's Hospital.
The girls started the guild in honor of their friend Sarah who lost her brave battle with a brain tumor at the age of 9. When Sarah was going through chemotherapy, and lost her hair, she always wore a Pink Bandana on her head.
Their main source of fundraising is selling elastic ponytail holders and headbands that they hand tie. They are currently sold at 11 Seattle retail locations. They have also held bake sales and are working to come up with a big annual fundraising event.
Since the guild was formed in March, 2012, they have raised over $8,000. Although their mission is serious, they have found a way to keep Sarah's infectious smile in their hearts.
