UglyChristmasSweater.com has teamed up with several of the designers from the hit Bravo/Lifetime Network reality-television series Project Runway to raise money for two much-deserving charities this 2015 holiday season.
We’ve enlisted the help of the Project Runway designers to raise money, firstly, for Leave No Paws Behind, a California-based 401 charity which is a animal rescue that focuses in on helping special needs, senior, and terminally-ill animals who have been abandoned in animal shelters. Leave No Paws Behind rescues this animals and rehabilitates them via foster care.
Secondly, UglyChristmasSweater.com is further interested in raising funds for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, which is a world-wide research foundation aimed at prevention and cure research toward breast cancer.
These are both charities that we’re really in strong support of, and we’d like to raise as much money as we can to help both of them in this holiday season. We’ve enlisted the help of the Project Runway designers to create truly one-of-a-kind ugly Christmas sweaters for both humans and pets in an attempt to auction them off through our partner site Bidding for Good with one-hundred percent of the auction proceeds going directly to both of these much-deserving charities.
We’ve enlisted the help of:
