WHAT IS SUPERHERO DAY?
At Love Your Melon, we celebrate National Superhero Day (April 28, 2018) by honoring the thousands of children undergoing cancer treatment across the world. These children are our superheroes, and we want to do everything we can to make a difference in their lives. Join us this week as we celebrate and encourage as many superheroes as possible!
10 BEANIE GIVING MACHINES
To celebrate our biggest Superhero Day yet, we’re launching our new vending machine initiative! This week, the first of ten Beanie Giving Machines will be unveiled in children’s hospitals across the country, providing children battling cancer the opportunity to receive a knit beanie and have a fun, positive experience during treatment. Our goal is to put a giving machine at every children’s hospital across the world.
200+ HOSPITAL EVENTS AND ADVENTURES
Starting April 26, 2018, we are celebrating our superheroes by visiting hospitals across the world to hand out knit beanies and make them feel like the superheroes they are! Our Campus Crew Members will also host various Superhero Adventures to provide therapeutic experiences for children and families battling cancer.
150+ EVENTS WITH NONPROFIT PARTNERS
We’re teaming up with three of our nonprofit partners to maximize our impact for this year’s Superhero Day! We will be joining Make-A-Wish to make five wishes come true for children battling cancer, preparing and serving 25 dinners for families at Ronald McDonald Houses across the United States and providing 100 Pinky Swear Orange Envelopes to financially assist families undergoing childhood cancer treatment.
