Keeping #HatNotHate Donations Safe

Make. Wear. Share.

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

Get Involved

Hat Not Hate is an anti-bullying campaign.

We ask knitters and crocheters 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.
