Monday, 26 November to Friday, 14 December.
Packages must be postmarked no later than 12 December and received at collection points no later than 14 December to count for House Points. See the full details in the rules (posted on Facebook in the "HRC Great Hall" closed group, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for a copy.)
Knit caps, knit hats, knit beanies, or ”toques” (pom-poms are fine!).
20,000 hats for the homeless!
2 hats = 1 point or 1 hat = ½ point.
House Goals for this DIP are in the full rules (again, email email@example.com for that rules document), but we want you to know that the goals have been reduced for all houses by about 30%. We know it's the holidays and funds/time can be tight, so we took that into account. That said, we fully expect HRC/PHRC to blow the 20,000-hat goal out of the water!
Hats should be knit, warm winter hats. They can be purchased, made by hand, or donated from your closet. See the rules document for complete specifications and examples of acceptable hats.
We have organized several HRC/PHRC members at EIGHT locations around the world. They have volunteered to receive the hats and organize distribution to local shelters and charities who will get the hats to those in need. There are five locations in the US, and one each in Canada, Europe and Australia. To find out YOUR regional Collection Point address, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll reply with specific information. (Likewise, addresses for Collection Points will be posted in our closed Facebook groups only, and should NOT be posted elsewhere on social media. Please respect our awesome volunteers. Thank you!)
