Hats Off For Cancer ~ A Community Service Project

Team Up with the AJSA for the Mad Hatter for Cancer

The Board of Trustees of the American Junior Simmental Association (AJSA) is excited to announce that this year’s national community service project will be a Mad Hatter drive. We will collect hats for the Hats Off For Cancer organization. Be a part of the effort by donating new hats of any kind (kid friendly logos please).

The brand new hats will be distributed to hospitals in Texas (home of the 2015 AJSA National Classic) and given to children battling cancer, especially children who lose their hair due to their cancer treatments. The hats can be anything from a ball cap to a handmade stocking cap, with lots of options in between.

Hats will be collected on Monday, July 6, at the opening ceremonies of the 2015 AJSA National Classic. Can’t make it to the National Classic, but still want to be a part of AJSA’s effort with Hats Off For Cancer? You can mail your hats to the American Simmental Association office by June 30.

Monetary donations are also accepted, the AJSA Board of Trustees will use this money to get hats made and/ or donate it to the organization to use as they see fit. Hats Off For Cancer is an all-volunteer organization. No one receives a salary. Since 1996 it estimates it has distributed 2 million hats.
