Hat Not Hate 

This yarn company and Their Brand Ambassador, Shira Blumenthal, helped launch the Hat Not Hate initiative.

Hat Not Hate’s concept is to get knitters and crocheters to knit and crochet blue hats and donate them to the cause. Blue represents awareness and solidarity and is the color to wear in support of bullying prevention.  

These hats are given to schools across the country for students to wear in October, National Bullying Prevention Month.

Wearing a blue hat empowers them to be strong and stand up to bullying, and to feel encouraged with all the love imbued in these handmade hats.
