Our friends at KPMG and golf champion Phil Mickelson have paired to launch ‘Blue for Books,’ a nationwide charitable initiative designed to put thousands of books into the hands of children in need through the sale of KPMG blue golf hats, just like the famous one that Mickelson wears on tour.
Mickelson will wear the new KPMG blue hat for the first time during the Shell Houston Open this week at Redstone Golf Club in Humble, Texas, where he is the defending champion.
For one year beginning March 26th, 100% of the net proceeds ($7.50) from each hat purchased on PhilsBlueHat.com will be donated to First Book to provide three new books to children from low-income families. KPMG has committed to a minimum guaranteed contribution of $50,000.
Make sure to get blue for books!
