“Teal Hat Project,
Collecting 100 Homemade Teal Hats for Ovarian Cancer Survivors”
Phoenix, AZ (June 18, 2011) – Announcing the first “Teal Hat Project” independent craft drive to collect 100 home sewn, knit, or crochet teal hats for Ovarian Cancer Survivors to be handed out at the Rhode Island Chapter National Ovarian Cancer Coalition’s 2011 Walk to Break the Silence, Sunday, September 25, 2011. 

Each year the Rhode Island NOCC walk draws hundreds of participants and many Ovarian Cancer survivors. The goal of The Teal Hat Project is to collect 100 homemade teal hats to donate to the walk for each survivor. In addition we will also be accepting other homemade donations for the survivor bags and fundraiser raffles. 

The style of hat is open to interpretation, but all donations must be homemade. Crafters are also invited to donate other homemade items to be raffled off during the walk to raise money for NOCC.  

“Teal Hat Project” was started by Mary Ciesynski of Gothcupcake and her cousin Donna Ricci, President of the Rhode Island Chapter of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition.  Our hope is to create an annual project that can unite survivors, crafters and the community to spread awareness of Ovarian Cancer through the gift of homemade. 

All homemade raffle and hat donations can be sent to 4802 E Ray Road Suite 23-417 Phoenix AZ 85044 before August 1st. Please be sure to include your name and location with your donations upon mailing them.
