The history of this hat:
The Blue Line hat is so much more than a hat to Bearded Outdoors. It is a symbol of our appreciation to those in Law Enforcement across the country. To owners’ Reese and Amber Richards it was a way to give back to a grieving community.
Reese Richards started by designing and only creating two hats. One was for himself and the other for an old high school buddy who was a Kentucky highway patrolman at the time. Little did he know, God was going to use this very hat to bring comfort and relief to the people of Gilchrist County, Florida.
On the morning of April 19, 2018, Reese posted a picture of the hat on social media that said "Back the blue.” Just hours later on the same day, two Gilchrist county deputies were ambushed and killed by a gunman while on duty. Reese and Amber, his wife, knew they had to help and decided to sell the Blue Line hats and donated 100% of the profit to the families of the fallen deputies.
In one week, they sold approximately three hundred hats and donated $4500 to the families of Sergeant Noel Ramirez Jr. and Deputy Sheriff Taylor Lindsey.
”We were so thankful and blessed that God had provided us with something to be able to do this. His timing is truly remarkable. As the event itself was absolutely horrific and something we pray we will never see again, we were just thankful we could help out in some way.” -Reese & Amber Richards
