Chapter Applications for 2018-2019 are OPEN!!!

Becoming a Chapter Leader is no small undertaking, but it IS an unforgettable experience!

Section 1

To apply you must answer yes to all of the following:

1. Can you pass a background check?

2. Can you crochet a Magic Yarn beanie (www.themagicyarnproject.com/crochet-patterns)?

3. Can you spend 5-10 hours a week as a Chapter Leader?

Time spent will vary each week. You may work 2 hours one week and 20 hrs the next – depending on workshops, etc. 

4. Do you have a storage/working space that’s approximately 10’x10’ (for assembling and packaging wigs)?

5. Do you have teaching/coaching/leadership experience?

6. Are you willing to provide Coronation Dues* and the fundraising amount*?

Chapter Leaders not only create Magic for children worldwide but they also support the organization’s growth through fundraising. You are encouraged to team up with your BFF (Best Fundraising Friend)! 

*Coronation Dues – $2500 (you are more than welcome to fundraise this amount!!!)

  • This will cover: travel, lodging, food, and the registration fee for the Coronation Training in Alaska. Coronation will be June 6-10, 2018, with 2 travel days on either end. Deadline for dues is April 1, 2018. Dues may differ for International Applicants.

*Fundraising – $5000

  • This will cover the supplies and shipping costs of 150 wigs. If you wish to make more wigs you will need to do additional fundraising. If you begin to provide your own wig supplies (beanies, accessories, yarn) this cost will drastically lower! Deadline for fundraising is Jan 1, 2019.

Both are required on a yearly basis from Chapter Leaders and amounts are subject to change

Hear from a Chapter Leader!

I love meeting new people. I love teaching others how simple it really is to make a wig that will bring joy and laughter into the life of a child who is battling cancer. I love that I am able to serve others while maintaining a schedule that works well with my family.
