OUR STORY

Cowboys Who Care Foundation is the brainchild of President, Founder and CEO, William Lee Martin. In 2010 Martin, a comedian and writer, was asked to perform at a fundraising 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 one day 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.”

 

Ashley's smile, her strength and her spirit will always be in our hearts. She inspired a movement. And she will never be forgotten.

We are 100% volunteer 501c3 organization that is dedicated to provide smiles, support and free new, specially made cowboy and cowgirl hats to boys and girls across America with cancer or other life-threatening illnesses.
 
It is our belief that there is nothing more precious than a child’s smile. We have found that cowboy hats help create those beautiful smiles. It is our belief that a cowboy hat is still a symbol of bravery, honor and now with your help, compassion.
