Eight-year-old Maiya, who has alopecia totalis, received a Jasmine wig from the Magic Yarn Project after losing all her hair. The "Aladdin" heroine is one of her favorite princesses because she followed her heart.
Five-year-old Sophie is battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia. She received a long Rapunzel wig from the Magic Yarn Project and loves wearing it with her Rapunzel dress.
Violet is 2½ years old. Over the summer, she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Her mother discovered the Magic Yarn Project right as Violet was losing her hair. Now, she enjoys wearing an Ariel wig with her matching dress.
The Magic Yarn Project also makes character wigs and beanies -- like this Capt. Jack Sparrow one -- that are more popular with boys, although any child can request any wig they want.
The wig and beanie offerings have expanded to include a variety of Disney characters and superheroes, as well as princess-inspired creations like Rapunzel wearing a purple beanie, left.
Beanies are crocheted and donated from all over the world. From there, they can be turned into wigs or decorated with accents.
