How to get involved with
Hat Not Hate in 2019

We had so much success in 2018 in spreading the #HatNotHate message!  In 2019 we are looking to spread the message even more by collecting 25,000 Blue Hats.

Lion Brand Yarn Company launched our anti-bullying campaign in 2018.

We encourage people to make, wear, and post handmade blue hats, adding #HatNotHate when sharing on social platforms.

Blue hats are our symbol in the “craftivist” movement to eradicate bullying.

Our Goal

To rally consumers to knit or crochet blue hats, share them on social media with #HatNotHate, and wear them proudly to build awareness and help support the efforts to stop bullying.

What exactly is #HatNotHate?

Lion Brand launched our anti-bullying campaign in 2018. We encourage people to make, wear, and post handmade blue hats, adding #HatNotHate when sharing on social platforms.

Blue hats are our symbol in the “craftivist” movement to eradicate bullying.

Why do the hats need to be blue?

The color blue represents awareness, peace, and solidarity. Blue is the color to wear in support of anti-bullying.

What are the requirements for the blue hats I want to donate?

As we are looking to fit a wide range of sizes (to fit ages 5 to 18), most hat sizes are appropriate, i.e. ranging from 14 inches to 20 inches in circumference. Close-fitting beanie style as well as slouchy style hats are welcome.

-Hats should be handmade using blue yarn.
-Blue hats need to be received by August 1st, 2019.
-Please include a tag or note stating the fiber content of the blue hat(s) you donate. Some people have allergies/sensitivities to certain fibers, so we want to be aware of the fiber contents of the hats we’re giving to schools.

Who receives the blue hats that are donated?

We will give the donated blue hats to select schools from around the country all of which are participating in National bullying prevention month throughout the month of October.

Box out Bullying

In our efforts to continue spreading the message of #hatnothate and working toward eradicating bullying, we are so happy to announce that this year we are partnering with Box Out Bullying.

They use interactive live theater, audience participation, and proven effective anti-bullying techniques to capture the attention of all students…. Their students are learning by seeing, listening, AND doing, which produces better results in message retention than using a video, a book, or a lecturer. Students will laugh, cheer, and think! They will walk away with important tools and insight to be stand-up citizens and key players in ending bullying. @boxoutbullying is a comprehensive program which includes: a dynamic live theater performance, research-based curricula, and follow-up resource materials. This all combines to offer students, educators, and parents the tools they need to make their school safe and free from bullying. For more information and donations click here
