We are all sailing in uncharted waters and doing the best we can to stay afloat mentally, physically, and financially. With that in mind, as small business owners directly impacted by this national emergency, we have started the “Pay It Forward / Small Biz Initiative”, thanks to the idea of Cindy Borders of Cindy Borders Jewelry.   The purpose of this initiative is to help generate revenue for those industries and small businesses that we love in this time of uncertainty and business disruption.

The Hat Girls will donate 10% of any online sale to one of the below small businesses or local (Louisville) industry funds. Please educate yourself by visiting the links below and upon making your purchase from our website,, we will reach out to you directly via email or phone for guidance on where to deposit your donation.
