Hats ON / Jeans Day
JOIN US! Have a HatsON Day or a Jeans Day for Progeria!
We hope you are well; staying home and staying safe.
We would love it if you could join us virtually for a HatsON fundraiser.
Even though we aren’t gathering in groups at this time, we can spend time together online!
Please take a photo and share it using #HatsONProgeria.
Join the fun and have a #HatsONforProgeria Day or Casual Day Fundraiser at your school or business. Just like a Dress Down Day, Pajama Day, or Jeans Friday, a HatsON Day is a simple but FUN way to raise awareness and funds for PRF and all the special children with Progeria. As we know some workplaces and schools don’t allow hats, we encourage having a Jeans Day for Progeria!
What is Hats ON for Progeria?
Hats ON for Progeria is similar to a dress down day except it is MORE FUN! Wear your favorite baseball hat, fedora, tiara or PRF hat to work or school and show your support for The Progeria Research Foundation by showing off your hat and making a donation. You can even wear your very own PRF hat for the event! Hats are tan or blue and available in the PRF webstore, now only $12!
How do I participate in Hats ON for Progeria?
Become an Event Organizer! Host a Hats ON for Progeria event at your school or A Jeans Day at your office. Or, create a Facebook fundraising page, and enlist your friends to participate and donate too!
As a Hats ON for Progeria Event Organizer your job is to promote the event: encourage participation, collect all donations (super easy if you have an online page!) and make the event FUN! Consider giving out an award for most creative hat, take a picture of your team in their hats, set a fundraising goal and keep people up to date on how you are progressing! Make sure to post on your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other social media using #HatsOnProgeria, or #JeansDayProgeria and send us your photos to post on the Facebook Event page!
