Be a 'Hat Day Head'
1 in 5 Aussies are affected by a mental illness every year, but it’s not something we tend to talk about. These illnesses include anxiety, depression, eating disorders, dementia, schizophrenia and many more, you’ll know how important it is for Australia to shine a light on mental illness.
By being ‘Head’ of Hat Day in your organisation, you’ll be making a real difference by helping raise funds for important research into finding cures and treatments for someone who might be close to you, or closer than you think.
How It Works
As the Head of Hat Day, you’re running the show, so use your head - and have some fun!
*Have a Hat Day Brekkie, Brunch or Lunch.
*TOP off the day with Hat Day drinks after work
*Host a trivia event e.g. what's the CAPital of KasHATstan? (ok it's not a real country)
*HEAD out for 10 pin bowling or barefoot bowling (or underarm bowling)
*Have a Hat Day sausage sizzle fundraiser
*Organise a Hat Toss championship (who's the biggest tosser at your workplace?)
*Make your own hats with folded paper
*Play the Hat Game where you put a famous name on someone's hat and they have to guess who it is
*Fill your hat with movie quotes and see who can guess the movie
*It doesn't have to be on October 7. Some save their Hat Day until Melbourne Cup - Australia's wackiest hat festival!
