Buy Hats!

WE ARE NO LONGER SELLING HATS. Rather than deleting this page, we are leaving it up, hoping to provide inspiration and a template for kids who want to help others. Feel free to look through the site, and keep fighting hunger any way you can!

Buying hats is easy.  Scroll through each price category, pick your favorite and enter the name in the paypal description field. (paypal description field has been deleted to avoid confusion) Hats sell quickly, so we’ll let you know immediately if your choice is not available.

Every hat you buy helps fight hunger.  Many of our customers buy extra hats to donate to homeless shelters–it’s amazing how much good a ball of yarn can do for the world! Hats make great gifts too.

Each price point has a special meaning and coincides with an animal gift via Heifer International.  A $40 hat contributes to a share of a pig; a $30 hat buys honeybees; a $20 hat pays for a flock of chicks, geese or ducks; every twelve $10 hats sold buys a sheep.

Thank you for helping to fight hunger one hat at a time!

This is a great project. Website is just neat! Even the very title is catchy. It must be a lot of hardwork, but many unseen people thank you for it!

I love what you’re doing…but I think it could be easier to find where to see the hats you’re selling. When I came to this page I expected to see a page full of hats to but (the shopping page) but got another page of text. I was interested enough to read and figure it out…and was still confused. I wasn’t sure where the price categories were and finally figured out you had linked them in the last paragraph.

To make it clearer, may I suggest a simple reorganization of the text here? Possibly like this:

Buying hats is easy. Scroll through each price category below, pick your favorite and enter the name in the paypal description field. Each price point has a special meaning and coincides with an animal gift via Heifer International:

$40 hat – contributes to a share of a pig
$30 hat – buys honeybees
$20 hat – pays for a flock of chicks, geese or ducks
$10 hat – every 12 hats sold buys a sheep.

Every hat you buy helps fight hunger. Many of our customers buy extra hats to donate to homeless shelters–it’s amazing how much good a ball of yarn can do for the world! Hats make great gifts too. If you can’t choose from our ever changing selection, let the recipient choose with a gift certificate.

Hats sell quickly, so we’ll let you know immediately if your choice is not available.

This makes the price points clearer and easier to find. Another way you could do this is to keep the text basically as is and put four graphics of hats with the price ranges above or below the text. These graphics would link to where you shop for the hats.

I hope I don’t sound critical…I’m just trying to offer some help. :-) I am linking to your site on http://www.squidoo.com/shop4charity

PS: Oops…didn’t see the dropdown. Just clicked on Buy Hats and must not have paused long enough for the dropdown to come up. This makes more sense now. I still think the textual re-organizations would be helpful though to people like me who come straight here.
