Our Mission is to rally communities to raise awareness and stand up to bullying.

Get Involved

#HATNOTHATE is an anti-bullying campaign.

We ask knitters, crocheters, and loomers to make handmade blue hats and donate them to our cause. In October, National Bullying Prevention Month, we distribute the hats to schools across the country for students to wear, empowering them to stand up to bullying.


Let's get social!

Share photos of yourself wearing your blue hat on social media using the #HATNOTHATE and tag us @hat_not_hate. Follow us on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram for more information.
