Cowboys Who Care Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides support, smiles
and free cowboy & cowgirl hats to kids with cancer & other life-threatening illnesses.
Who have we helped?
Thus far, since starting July 1, 2012, we have delivered over 500 hats to kids with organizations like Camp COCO, a summer camp for kids with cancer in Southern Illinois and Cook Children’s Medical Center in Ft. Worth, TX.
Our goal is 1 million cowboy hats in the next 5 years.
How Did We Start?
Cowboys Who Care Foundation is the brainchild of the foundation’s President, Founder and CEO,
Cowboy Bill Martin. Two years ago Martin, a comedian and writer, was asked to perform at a fund raising golf tournament for a young fan named Ashley Miller from Celina, TX, who was battling a rare form of cancer.
Martin said, “Ashley’s story had such an impact on me. And when she bravely lost her battle in
June 2011, I knew I wanted to help other kids like her. Then this last May, I searched on my computer, ‘Kids with cancer – Images’ and found all these pictures of kids with big, beautiful smiles and
bald heads. And in the mirror, I could see my cowboy hat and it hit me, these kids need cowboy hats.”
Cowboys Who Care Foundation’s Board of Directors includes PRCA / Trick Roper, Anthony Lucia,
Singer / Songwriter, Steve Helms, physicians and have teamed with Resistol on several events.
Why Do We Help?
It is our belief that there is nothing more precious than a child’s smile. The hats are there to do that.
After all, what kid wants to wear a wig, but what kid wouldn’t want to wear a cowboy hat, healthy or otherwise?
A cowboy hat is still a symbol of bravery, honor and now with your help, compassion.
Cowboys Who Care Foundation because every kid wants to be a cowboy
