About five years ago, Zachary Quinn and his classmate Brian Keller started a hat company as part of a college class challenge.
Since then, the Love Your Melon company has grown to $20 million and 25-year-old Zachary has taken on the role of CEO.
The success of the company is remarkable, but it’s even more special because they donate half of all their profits to help kids with cancer.
They’ve already given more than $2.8 million to research and to charity groups such as St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital and the Pinky Swear Foundation. The company also has college student volunteers dress up as super heroes to visit hospitals and personally deliver donated hats to as many of the 15,000 kids who are diagnosed with cancer each year.
As the company continues to grow, it will continue to help out with bigger and bigger donations in the years to come. (Moneyish)
