While you scurry about the house trying to hide presents in a spot that the kids haven’t discovered yet, you might come across that sweater. Yes, that sweater. The ugly one that has been tucked away, waiting for someone to appreciate its gaudy reindeer with the light-up nose. Well, with the growing popularity of Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, that sweater will finally have its day in the spotlight. On December 12th, thousands of people will celebrate the cheesy side of Christmas by donning their most garish holiday-themed sweaters. The best part of National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, however, is its partnership with Save the Children. Those who wear their loud sweaters proudly can also donate to this charity as part of their “Make The World Better With A Sweater” campaign.
Save the Children is an incredibly worthy cause, having provided food, clothing, and education to children both within the U.S. and around the world for over 80 years. They are committed to giving children better opportunities, and have achieved amazing results. Currently, they are working hard to help the thousands of children infected with or affected by the West African Ebola outbreak.
