September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month! How are you going to make a difference? Cancer is the second leading cause of death in children younger than 15 years old (after accidents). In the U.S., about 46 children and teens are diagnosed with cancer every week day.
You can help! Hold a Mad Hatter drive in your community and help bring awareness to this disease, while helping to improve the quality of life for kids and teens battling cancer. Find out more here: http://hatsoffforcancer.org/mad-hatter-drive/

The Beverly Hills Unified School District PTAs ran a hat knitting booth for Hats Off For Cancer. This booth was held during their Relay For Life at El Rodeo School in May 2013. Students, Parents and Teachers knitted a total of 75 hats for the charity. Each hat is hand-made, unique, and made with lots of love and compassion. — at El Rodeo Elementary School.
