(Toronto, Canada) – Tilley Endurables, makers of the iconic Tilley Hats and superior travel clothing, is pleased to announce that as of April 2011 the company has been fortunate enough to donate over $120,000 to Street Kids International, a global non-profit organization that helps street kids learn to support themselves and make healthy, educated decisions that positively impact their lives.

This achievement represents contributions that came from a portion of the sales from each Tilley Hemp Hat. Through this donation, Tilley has been able to help 15,000 kids living on the street create a better future for themselves and their communities. The successful Hemp Collection continues to add styles and options for consumers who not only invest in a legendary Tilley Hat, but also invest in the future of the world's youth.

“It's incredible to think that a simple Hat has been able to touch so many lives from around the world,” says Alex Tilley, founder of Tilley Endurables. “The ability to support the next generation of ambitious future-business-owners is an incredible opportunity and we look forward to seeing how the future unfolds for these individuals.”

Arming youth with the tools and knowledge to become self-sufficient and contributing members of their community may not always be the reason consumers buy a Tilley Hemp Hat, but with each sale the wearer can feel great about making a long-term investment in their Hat as well as youths across the world.

One more reason to buy a Tilley Hemp Hat is the new for Spring 2011 Women's Broad Brimmed TH10, the perfect accessory for lounging on the beach. The stylish and sun-protective Hat is made with 100% Hemp fabric and features a rounded crown and downward sloping brim – just add sunglasses and sun-block for an instant beach-ready look!
