The mission of Kate Winslet’s Golden Hat Foundation is to change the way people with autism are perceived, by shining a light on their abilities and emphasizing their great potential. With proper education and career training, these individuals can be contributing citizens and a value to society. Awareness is our first objective - we will achieve this through partnering with celebrities to take our torch to the masses. Our long-term goals include the establishment of innovative living campuses for individuals with autism- the prototype to be in the Austin area.
Golden Hat Foundation is hosting the Golden Hat Walk for Autism: a family friendly parade and celebration designed to enhance community, spread awareness of the intellectual capabilities of individuals with autism, and provide useful resources for families and fun activities for kids. Funds generated through this meaningful event go directly toward the Foundation’s missions and goals.
