Hard Hats for Little Heads: 200,000 Helmets and Counting

TMA's Hard Hats for Little Heads bike helmet giveaway program reached a huge milestone in 2014 — giving away its 200,000th helmet. Keep the momentum going this year with three great opportunities for a helmet giveaway: Brain Injury Awareness Month in March, Texas Child Safety Month in April, and Bike Month in May.

Hosting a Hard Hats for Little Heads' event is easy and rewarding. TMA provides everything you need: helmets, event signage, promotional flyers, educational handouts, and media relations support. TMA encourages physicians, county medical societies, medical students, and TMA Alliance members to give free helmets to children in your community. 

TMA provides extra free helmets with your helmets purchase. Buy 50 helmets at our cost of $7.60 each, and we'll give you 50 helmets free. The Texas Pediatric Society (TPS) and the Texas Academy of Family Physicians (TAFP) support Hard Hats for Little Heads by purchasing up to 50 helmets for their members to host helmet giveaway events. TMA matches the purchase, so TAFP and TPS members can receive up to 100 helmets at no cost for their giveaways.

Thanks to everyone who sponsored an event in 2014, helping TMA give away a record 36,825 helmets at more than 200 events statewide. Take a look at where Hard Hats has been. If your county isn't represented, put it on the map this year.

Hard Hats for Little Heads is made possible through a grant from the TMA Foundation thanks to top donors — Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, Prudential, and two anonymous foundations — and gifts from physicians and their families.
