Hat Day is Australian Rotary Health’s national fundraising and awareness day for mental health research, celebrated each year on World Mental Health Day - Friday October 9, 2015. Since the inaugural Hat Day in 2011, Hat Day has claimed two Guinness World Records (most people wearing paper hats & most people wearing red hats).
Rotary Clubs have been our biggest supporters to date, and with your help we are reaching an increasing number of organisations who are hosting Hat Day events in their workplaces.
Some great Hat Day events and initiatives have included:
  • Trivia nights – many clubs have held successful events using our trivia host kit available upon request;
  • A pirate-themed river cruise;
  • Taking posters and collection boxes to local business receptions;
  • Stalls at local shopping centres or community events (some with cupcakes);
  • Official fundraising at train stations;
  • The annual Australian Rotary Health Wine, Food & Race Day.
