Starting in November 2015, Jaimie Holsinger began a Love Your Melon Campus Crew here at LHU. Now thriving with 12 members, Love Your Melon is beginning to spread here in Lock Haven, not just at the university, but also in the community.

Love Your Melon is an apparel brand run by college students across the country on a mission to give a hat to every child battling cancer in America. When someone orders a Love Your Melon product, 50 percent of the net proceeds are donated to our two partners, the Pinky Swear Foundation and CureSearch for Children’s Cancer. The Pinky Swear Foundation provides immediate support to children battling cancer. CureSearch for Children’s Cancer funds research initiatives to beat childhood cancer completely. Love Your Melon continues to give hats to children across the nation diagnosed with cancer, as well to the 45,000 children the crews have already committed to.

Currently, our campus crew has visited two children courageously battling cancer. Aidan Fowler and Andrea Motter are our newest superhero friends and we were able to make them honorary members in our crew. After meeting them, our crew has been inspired to keep fighting for people like Aidan and Andi, and can’t wait to continue to meet more superheroes like them.
