Hats Across America

In the winter of 2007, a friend asked if my sister would knit a soft washable hat for a little girl that just lost her hair in a fight against cancer. My sister made a beautiful hat and packaged it a a nice little box. It was so well received that the idea was born - we would start a volunteer-based, non-profit organization and name it - the Hat Box Foundation. Our mission is to make and distribute hand-made hats (knitted or crocheted) free of charge to people fighting the tough battle against cancer and other life threatening illnesses. We believe that something made from the heart can help heal the human spirit. We have many volunteers across the country who donate their time and talent making our hats but still need more help. Please consider joining us on our journey as we continue to touch lives and expand to other areas of the country. For more information, please visit our website at
