It's one month to Hat Day on Friday October 10th, 2014
and we couldn't be more excited! 
Since we launched the new website in July 
we've been inundated with registrations -
 thank you to all the organisations 
who have signed up to host a Hat Day event!


We also welcomed Australian actor Elle Dawe,
 back as a 2014 ambassador,
 and Australian actor Pauly Fenech
 as a 2014 Hat Day supporter (pictured below)!





                                       Hat Day Funding

I am one of a few fortunate researchers that has received funds 
for my mental health research project. 
The truth is, in Australia, many of my colleagues are struggling
 to find the funding to do important mental health research –
 there is a huge lack of funding in this critical area.

The funds for my research have been provided
 by Australian Rotary Health, from funds raised
 on National Hat Day – Friday October 10. 
100% of the proceeds from Hat Day 
go toward mental health research projects like mine.

I would encourage every one of you to get involved
 in a Hat Day party,
 simply register an event, wear a hat 
and donate onlinewww.hatday.com.au
Or write your own blog and link to #hatday14.


If you or someone you know is in need of counselling, 
please contact Suicide Call Back Service: 
1300 659 467 or Lifeline: 13 11 14.

How did he do that??
 LEGO iPad Magic with Simon Pierro







A golf club walks into a local bar 
and asks the barman for a pint of beer.


The barman refuses to serve him.

"Why not?" asks the golf club.

"You'll be driving later,"
 replies the bartender
