What is hat day?
Friday October 9 is Hat Day, the fun-draising day where you wear a hat and make a donation to help shine a light on mental illness in Australia.
Simply register your Hat Day here on our website. It could be for your company, club, sport team, friends, family – whatever!
Your very own Hat Day event page will be set up where people can make a donation to this wonderful cause. You’ll be able to set a ‘Hat’s Off’ target to reach and watch the progress.
So share the link to your page and let everyone know early that they can donate online at any time they’re feeling generous, not only on Hat Day.
100% of the money raised for Hat Day goes to research into helping those affected by depression, anxiety, schizophrenia and many other illnesses.
Hat Day is an initiative of Australian Rotary Health, one of the largest non-government funders of mental illness research in Australia.
Hat Day 2015 is to be the springboard to launch a new national initiative focused on the prevention of mental health disorders.
