About Ellie’s Hats

In the spring of 2013 a little girl named Ellie was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. By the time she started kindergarten in the fall, she had lost most of her hair and was wearing hats to school every day. Ellie’s Hats was born after one of her teachers noticed how much cheer and individuality the hats brought to Ellie. He wanted to share that feeling with other children who suffered from childhood cancer and to also raise awareness.

With the support of  our partners and sponsors we have been able to donate thousands of hats to children across the country. As we have grown we have started to send things like gift cards to provide some help the families which we hope to be able to do more of in the future.
