The HeadBand Project: Strength In Buttons

South San Francisco, CA  May 22, 2020 Submitted by Stephanie Romero and Samantha Romero


Nurses at Zuckerberg SF General Hospital appreciate gifted headbands – they do make a big difference.
Donate today!


The HeadBand Project: Strength In Buttons (Instagram: @theheadbandproject) is a collective effort to provide healthcare personnel and other essential workers with headbands free of cost that are made to alleviate ear discomfort that may come up after wearing PPE for extended periods of time. The headbands are made with buttons attached to both sides so that any elastic may hang from the buttons rather than the individual’s ears.

We have reached over 10+ different hospitals with over 150+ headbands in the past month amidst the COVID-19 crisis. Some hospitals we have been able to provide for include: Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital, UCLA Medical Center, UCI Medical Center, Kaiser, Stanford Health Care, and many more! Currently, we are mainly based in the Bay Area and Southern California Areas, however, we are able to ship requests domestically.
