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 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 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?
