What is Hats Off for Andrew?
Hats Off is a yearlong project to help keep Andrew’s spirits high during his cancer treatment. Its goal? To send him a ballcap from every U.S. state and Canadian province. If he receives one each week, he will be done with his treatment by the time his collection is complete.
How do I sign up to represent my location?
First, check out the list of available places. If you see yours listed, click it to send an e-mail and sign up. (If your location is already taken, you can still help! E-mail friends and family about Hats Off and encourage them to sign up for their state or province.)
What kind of ballcap should I send?
Please send a “youth” or “small” size ballcap that reflects your state or province in some way. Need some ideas? Consider a cap from a sports team, a local university, a company headquartered in your area, or a landmark or symbol of your state or province.
May I include anything else with my ballcap?
Yes! Andrew’s older brothers, ages 6 and 4, would love to get a surprise from your state or province, too. Need ideas? Consider stickers, pencils, key chains, postcards, stuffed animals, and magnets. Be creative!
