Founded in 2012, two students at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN, had the idea for an entrepreneurship class project to give each child battling cancer a cute beanie. The project quickly turned into a business, as many people also wanted to purchase the hats. 50% of profit from the sale of all LYM products is given to LYM’s nonprofit partners in the fight against pediatric cancer. The nonprofit partners work in the field of pediatric oncology, fund cancer research initiatives and provide immediate support for families of children battling cancer. To date, LYM has donated over 2.6 million dollars to nonprofits such as Make A Wish Foundation & RMHC.
