Cat in the Hat for President
The Cat in the Hat, in his Presidential campaign, will represent all that Dr. Seuss believed about children—that they have the intellect, imagination and power to impact our world positively, while also having fun doing so. The Cat in the Hat wants to show kids that every vote counts, and every voice matters. On the ballot are his supporters and their causes, including “kindness for all” sponsored by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center. The organization with the most votes receives a $10,000 donation. Vote for KINDNESS TO ALL
