Need a hat? Consider yourself covered. We’ve teamed up with Love Your Melon to create a reversible hat that supporters of Children’s Minnesota can wear while helping the most amazing people on earth.
Beginning today hats can be purchased at the Storybook Gift Shop on our Minneapolis campus (2525 Chicago Ave. S.) for $30 each. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of each hat will go to our Cancer Kids Fund.
UPDATE (Feb. 18, 2016): Hats are sold out.
To celebrate the launch of the new hat, superhero ambassadors from Love Your Melon will give away 200 hats to patients during an event at Star Studio in Minneapolis, hosted by The Dude, and the Child Life Zone in St. Paul from 11 a.m. to noon today. Patients, families and staff are encouraged to attend. [WATCH ONLINE]
