"If I had not wanted hair...feel confident, more beautiful, more womanly." Help us to offer turbans for women without hair, following chemotherapy treatments.

With the help of each one the social project "One smile for a turban" (1 Turbante 1 Sorriso) intends to offer approximately 70 turbans to women without hair due to chemotherapy treatments.

Os nossos Turbantes.

This project will be funded throughout Crowdfunding, and will benefit the patients of the Oncology Service of the Hospital de São Bernardo at Setúbal. The Hospital Managing Board and its healthcare professionals totally support this project.

In what concerns to turbans they are made in Portugal in Fábrica dos Chapéus. They have an original and reversible model and are extremely easy to use, which is an important benefit for these patients, who frequently neither have time and patience to take care of their image.

The turbans will raise the self-esteem of these women. They get stronger when being comfortable with their look, and that may contribute to the success of the treatments.

To those who contribute the best reward is the smile of someone.

About the author

My name is Manuela Lopes and I was born in 1959, in Beja. I have moved to Setúbal when I was still a child and I have been living there since then. I´m married and I have a daughter and a son. I have been working at Academia de Música e Belas Artes Luisa Tody, a school where the students receive education in arts.

It is indeed in the domain of arts that I have mostly developed my career, having a big passion for Fashion. In this project I see the possibility to get together Fashion and the Social Cause, which is also part of my philosophy for life!
