Hat Not Hate, an anti-bullying initiative started by Lion Brand, has extended their deadline for blue hat collection. Back for its second yarn, Hat Not Hate has challenged knitters to knit or crochet blue hats to fit heads aged 5-18 years old. The hats will be distributed to participating schools across the country during the month of October, which is National Bullying Prevention Month. With already over 15k blue hats, the Hat Not Hate team hopes to make it to 25k hats before the new September 1st deadline. Send hats to: Hats Not Hate, Lion Brand Yarn Co. 140 Kero Rd. Carlstadt, NJ, 07072.
