My Ugly Christmas Sweater Charity and Sweaters4Troops Campaign
My Ugly Christmas Sweater donated hundreds of Christmas sweaters to U.S. troops in Sweaters4Troops campaign.
From 2009 - 2015 My Ugly Christmas Sweater, Inc. donated well over 1000 Christmas sweaters to our U.S. troop serving away from home. We thank them for their service and hope our sweaters made their holidays a bit brighter during a difficult time away from family and friends at home.
If you have photos of yourself or a loved on in the military who is wearing a Christmas sweater tweet it to:
In 2009 My Ugly Christmas Sweater was new small business on eBay and received an inquiry from a servicewoman serving in on a base in the middle east. She was ordering three sweaters and we worked her to get the sweaters shipped a.s.a.p. so they would get to her base in time for the holiday. We included an extra box of free Wacky Santa sweaters in the shipment, along with a box of funny antlers. We received some fantastic photos back from this group of service people, along with a beautiful note of thanks.
We've shipped to troops stationed all over the world, and our thought is that any service people away from home could use a bit of levity around the holidays when they may be missing their families back home. We've received requests from anywhere from 10 to 300 sweaters in a shipment, and sent them to bases and air craft carriers.
We found it extra touching in 2012 when we sent sweaters and a case of antlers to a service person serving on a carrier in the South China Sea. In the spirit of giving, the soldier gave away many of the antlers to children in Japan, and expressed his appreciation for the gift from us, and his joy in giving to others.
We're always thrilled to get a photo when possible, but if not then it's great just to know the sweaters were enjoyed.
