What is the SU2C Ugly Sweater Campaign?
Throughout December, you may notice an abnormal increase in gloriousness. There are two reasons for this:
- The inherent majesty of large numbers of people wearing their ugliest holiday sweaters for days on end.
- The warm glow these people get when pledging to raise donations this holiday season to benefit Stand Up To Cancer – a groundbreaking initiative created to accelerate innovative cancer research and save lives now.
HOW CAN I JOIN THE UGLY SWEATER EXTRAVAGANZA?
There are two ways for you to participate, with 100% of the funds raised going directly to support SU2C's cutting-edge cancer research:
- Commit to wearing an ugly sweater between 1 and 31 days during December. Challenge your friends to support you for each day you dare to wear. Friends' pledges can be any amount, from a dollar a day on up… every donation helps! Wear it for as long as you would like – anywhere from one day to the entire month. You'll also earn some sweet merch depending on how much you raise.
- Throw an Ugly Sweater Party. Build your party profile, where you can pick a date and a fundraising goal, then send out your invitations (don't worry, you can earn the sweet SU2C merch too!). Guests can pay a suggested donation online or at the door. Checks are also acceptable and can be sent to us here.
You'll also have a chance to submit your ugly sweater pics to our photo contest for a chance to win some cool SU2C gear.
