The best memories are made outside. Rope swings. Climbing trees. Collecting shells. Water fights. Beach days. And at Bedhead, we’re lucky as we get to be there for it all - the adventure, the exploring, the playing. We help keep those little explorers safe from the sun so they can grow up and enjoy the memories they’re making now. Because skin cancer is serious, and we need to be proactive in protecting it. And it starts from day one.
If a child begins wearing a hat from birth they soon realise that hats are an essential part of their everyday outfit – not just an accessory – setting them up with the skills to becoming #sunsafeforlife. With summer coming at us fast we’re again dedicating November to preparing families around Australia for this wonderful yet dangerous time of year with tips, tricks and product giveaways and recommendations.
Here’s what we have planned to help you get ready for some summer fun in the sun - safely!
Daily giveaway for
The moment you know you’re going to be a parent is the moment that instinctive need to protect your child kicks in. It’s a never-ending, exhaustive effort to do so, so we thought we’d help out in the sun-protection department by giving away newborn hat packs to soon-to-be parents*.
Upload an image of your ultrasound (for babies due from October 1, 2020) to receive a Protect the Potential gift pack.
*Capped at 2000 entries.
FREE newborn hat
with every purchase over $100
Every order via our website in November $100 or more will receive a Protect the Potential gift pack which includes a newborn size white legionnaire sun hat and sun-safety information booklet*. As a bonus, you'll get free shipping too!
Our plan is to start as many newborn babies on their hat-styling journey as possible and we hope you’ll help us spread our hats far and wide by gifting this pack (if you don’t need it yourself!) to a new mum friend, expecting family member or perhaps you could make someone’s day by handing it to a pregnant stranger at the shops! Give and enjoy the feeling it gives you too!
*Capped at 2000 orders. Minimum order of $100. Not available during a sale period.
WIN two Bedhead bundles
a year for 10 years
We hope to really impact one family’s sun safety by gifting them two Bedhead bundles each year for 10 years. And with the introduction of our Ladies hats in our newly revamped Heritage collection, you should have (most of!) the whole family covered (literally!) for most of your children’s childhood! The prize includes any bundles available at the time (bundles can change each season). Look out for this giveaway on our Instagram and Facebook pages from November 4 - enter both to double your chances!
Talking all things sun safety
Check out our blog and socials this month for all things summer preparation. We’re finding the best of the best beach gear, helping you own your tone, sharing how old family members are the best role models, reviewing sun products and getting you to spill your top must-have products, cool-down spots and summer-survival advice!
We’d love to have you get involved and spread the word about our giveaways to your friends, families and followers on social media by using the #sunsafeforlife hashtag and sharing your own sun-safe stories.
New summer bundles have you covered
One hat is never enough! Our new Summer Essentials Bundle contains three hats from our new range: a plain-coloured hat for the everyday, a printed hat to fancy it up a little, and a swim hat for waterplay. Bundle up to include a Rash Vest and matching Wet Bag and your summer sun-safe swimwear is sorted!
Win a summer bundle: Look out on our socials for competitions to win a summer bundle – we’ll have a couple to give away throughout the month.
Partnering with charities
With Australia having one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world, Bedhead Hats is committed to helping parents instill good sun-safety habits in children at a young age. Through our annual Protect The Potential initiative, we give away $200,000 worth of newborn baby hats to Australian babies via charities, hospitals, ante-natal clinics, events and our own bi-annual monthly initiatives. It’s our effort in taking responsible steps to making a difference to the next generation of children. Read more about our initiative here.
