Stand Up to Cancer SU2C Campaign November 20 2013
Stand Up to Cancer Kicks Off Annual Ugly Sweater Campaign
Receiving an ugly sweater from your auntie can definitely be a bummer, but you can turn that unwanted gift into something worthwhile by participating in the Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) annual “Ugly Sweater” Holiday Campaign, which kicks off today, Nov. 20.
For the second year in a row, SU2C is asking holiday goers to proudly rock their garish holiday-themed sweaters to raise funds for innovative cancer research. There are two ways to participate in the SU2C “Ugly Sweater” Holiday Campaign, both of which are easy and fun.
The first way to participate in the campaign is to create a free “Ugly Sweater” fundraising page and run a “Sweater-A-Thon”. For this fundraiser idea, participants reach out to friends and family requesting a donation for each day that they “dare to wear” an ugly holiday-themed sweater. “Ugly Sweater” participants can also upload photos to share a special “Ugly Sweater” e-card and send the card to friends and family to spread the word about their “Sweater-A-Thon”.
The second way to participate in the campaign is to throw an “Ugly Sweater” party. Party hosts can easily utilize custom SU2C Ugly Sweater Party invitations, provided byEvite, and also use the site for complete party planning. Party guests are urged to wear their own ugly holiday-themed sweaters and donate to the SU2C “Ugly Sweater” Holiday Campaign.
Whether you choose to participate directly in the campaign or not, you can help raise awareness for the SU2C fundraiser by sharing and liking the ugly sweaters posted on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and using the hashtag #uglysweater. All proceeds from SU2C’s “Ugly Sweater” Holiday Campaign will go to funding research. For more information about SU2C and its cancer research efforts, please visit Stand Up To Cancer.
Things Got Ugly on Fox & Friends June 03 2013
Well, it's officially become another holiday tradition, as "Team Ugly", Adam, Kevin and myself made our fourth consecutive appearance on Fox & Friends this weekend, but with a twist - things got ugly LIVE in their New York studios! This was our first time visiting their NYC studios, as we have traditionally just done a satellite feed from Chicago, so it was up close, in person and even more UGLY!
There's nothing more exciting this time of year than to see hundreds of thousands of people from all over the globe come to view the Christmas decorations and lights in New York City! The highlight was seeing the Christmas tree lit up at 30 Rockefeller Plaza - simply amazing! Certainly motivated us to make this season of ugly Christmas sweaters the best yet!
If you missed our segment, be sure to check out the replay below, as we were honored to help kick off the StandUp2Cancer (SU2C) new campaign called "Hey Cancer It's Gonna Get Ugly!" - Not only are we excited to announce and promote the campaign, but we've also decided to participate and set the goal to raise $10,000 this December!

2012 Recap & 4th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party December 30 2012
Our 4th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party was a huge success and a great way to end the 2012 season! We had such a great turnout - the bar was packed, the bowling lanes were full as hundreds of our friends, family and complete strangers gathered wearing their ugliest and tackiest Christmas sweaters to have a great time and raise money for StandUp2Cancer. We're proud to say that with the help of over 20 local businesses and all those in attendance, we generated over $800 worth of raffle prizes and over $500 in cash donations!
Thank you so much to all of our customers and business partners that helped make 2012 another record year! Without you all, we'd just be three guys in a warehouse filled with wool, cotton and synthetic blend materials - THANK YOU!
We wish you all the best in 2013!
Team Ugly - Adam, Brian & Kevin
