One freezing, snowy, gloomy day in Ann Arbor, a team of caring and kind-hearted attorneys set out on a mission. Their aim was to feed the homeless of their town. They ventured to their local soup kitchen, and donned very un-attorney-like outfits. The soup kitchen had a selection of hats for their perusal, to ensure that all the people who managed to find a hot meal there enjoyed hygienic and soul-comforting food.
A purple hat sat on top of the pile of hats in front of the attorneys. It was a floppy hat made of felt. The attorneys knew they had a name for their volunteerism, and the essence of the program was embodied in that hat. It was warm, it was beautiful, it was one of a kind.
PurpleHat endeavors to reach out to communities across the globe. Whether it’s through pro bono projects, outreach programs, or community services, there’s a PurpleHat member behind it. And it’s not just about the PurpleHat pro bono services alone, either. The aim is to network with other attorneys, companies, and pro bono organizations that provide pro bono services and volunteer and connect on a global level. There are people out there who require the assistance of attorneys who care, and PurpleHat wants to reach them all.
