Wear A Hat Day

Wear A Hat Day History

Wear A Hat Day seeks to raise awareness about brain tumours. Brain tumours are masses or growths of abnormal cells in the brain. They can occur from cell mutations in the brain or be spread by other forms of cancer. Cures and treatments are available, but they can be very costly. Some may even come with risk. This day supports those diagnosed with brain tumours by fundraising and raising awareness. It encourages purchasing kusan bobble hats as a sign of solidarity and as a means of donating.

Wear A Hat Day seems to have started in 2014 as an initiative to fundraise for brain tumour research. It is observed annually in late March.
