Feeling the holiday blues? Need a quick boost to your spirits? Well, dig out that ugly sweater you have tucked in the back of your closet because December 18 is National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day! Who knew all those ugly sweaters grandmothers gave us would actually be put to use?
I'm not a fan of selfies or ugly Christmas sweaters but when Heifer.org reached out and asked if I wanted one and to help promote giving a Heifer gift this year, I could not refuse.
Heifer's mission is to end hunger and poverty by providing livestock and environmentally sound agricultural training to improve the lives of those who struggle to feed and provide for their family.
To celebrate the day and to help Heifer on its mission, share a selfie of yourself in your ugly sweater with #GiveHeifer. For every selfie posted with the hashtag, Heifer will receive $5! Heifer is currently working in 30 countries including the U.S. so won't this just be the easiest way to give back this Christmas?
To help with your hunt for the perfect sweater, I've scoured Amazon for the absolute best ugly sweaters to inspire you and since most are Prime items, you can have one just in time.
For the guy or gal who loves a little fringe
For the classy and sophisticated gal
The perfect little sweater dress
If you're feeling a little saucy
For the guy who already considers himself a gift
and the gal that does
If you are feeling a little naughty (and HR won't mind)
If you already have your seat in the handbasket
And finally, if you want to brighten someone's day
Don't be shy! Take that selfie and tag it #GiftHeifer. Happy Christmas!
In case you want the one I'm wearing...
