Will Ferrell Sunscreen to Launch Just in Time for Summer

Yes, you read the headline correctly - Will Ferrell is into sunscreen, and is launching it to benefit the Willpowered Scholarship Fund at the Cancer for College site http://www.cancerforcollege.org/Scholarship_Info.php. The Fund grants scholarships to cancer survivors and amputees. (I hope Ms. Roark in the following post fills out a scholarship form when they come out in July!)

From the Cancer for College press release:

Will Ferrell’s Sexy Hot Tan, Sunstroke and Forbidden Fruit SPF 30 sunscreens launched today on Amazon, eBay and www.cancerforcollege.com starting at $11.99. The products are Ferrell’s first foray into fundraising products for a charity he has been involved in since his college days.

Cancer for College was formed in 1993 by two-time cancer survivor and double amputee, Craig Pollard. Pollard was a fraternity brother of Will Ferrell at the University of Southern California. Since its inception, Ferrell has been a devoted supporter of the charity and has served as the celebrity host of Cancer for College fundraising events since 2002.

Cheeky Librarian here again. Since I am REALLY into sunscreen these days (and hats, and Lands' End sunscreen clothing-my experience with it here, and being inside most days during the hours of noon until 8pm... ), I figure I will be buying some of Mr. Ferrell's product. This I will be doing for many reasons: the protective properties; the hilarious labels on the bottles (Will Ferrell in a fig leaf - priceless); and for the fact that all proceeds go to the scholarship fund. Thanks for not making us save and mail in sticky lids, Will - I for one appreciate it.

Teri--have you investigated the link between sunscreen usage and the recent huge jump in the number of people with vitamin D deficiencies?

I've been wondering about that.

 
Who links to my website?
