Will Ferrell’s Sunscreen for Charity

Will Ferrell SunscreenYeah, I did a double-take too.  It’s hard to believe but these Will Ferrell sunscreens are very much the real deal and are available for purchase via retailers like Fred Flare.  100% of the proceeds from the sale of Sun Stroke and Sexy Hot Tan go to a non-profit charity called Cancer for College, founded by two-time cancer survivor Craig Pollard who went to college with the Anchorman.  Believe me, it took me a while to realize that this charity was not a fake.  It has been around since 1993 and has granted nearly half a million dollars in scholarships to more than 400 cancer survivors so it’s no laughing matter!  According to a recent press release, they just sold their 10,000th bottle after two months of sales.  Not bad, given it’s not exactly lining the shelves of your local drugstore just yet.  What a great way to not only build buzz but raise some serious money for a good cause.  Nothing says sexy like Will Ferrell in a speedo!  Pollard believes that in order to go through something as difficult as cancer, one must never lose their sense of humor.  He is currently writing a book of funny stories called The Lighter Side of Cancer.  Again, no joke!
