Will Ferrell Sunscreen for Charity
“The bottle says it all. I’ve always dreamed of owning a lotion company.” Will Ferrell
Athlebrities’ favorite actor-comedian-golfer-tennis-pro and all around good guy, Will Ferrell, has once again gone above and beyond to ensure the success of Cancer for College. The non-profit organization, which grants scholarships to cancer survivors and amputees, has just launched a new line of sunscreens featuring Ferrell with all proceeds benefiting Cancer for College.
The Sexy Hot Tan, Sunstroke and Forbidden Fruit sunscreens mark Ferrell’s first venture into fundraising products for the charity founded by his college pal, cancer survivor and double amputee Craig Pollard.
“Some people are charitable with their money. Some are charitable with their time,” said Craig Pollard. “Will Ferrell has been extremely generous with both…we have been so incredibly fortunate to have had Will Ferrell’s support through the years. Creating this line of sunscreen products allows us the ability to use Will’s image to promote the mission of our charity, raise some valuable funds to help send cancer survivors to college and increase cancer awareness.”
“We are obviously appealing to sun worshippers, streakers, art lovers and the ever growing market of body-building golfers,” said Ferrell. “We hope that everyone will see the humor in this product and join us in support of a very worthy cause…I’m proud to be associated with such a great charity. I’ve watched Craig and Cancer for College help hundreds of cancer survivors realize their dream of a college education. The stories are so inspirational. I’m just happy to help any way I can,” said Ferrell.
The humorous packaging of the must-have sunscreens were designed by BogeyPro founder Arik Norby, who was asked to create the artwork and catch-phrases by Pollard who’s a fan of Norby’s wicked sense of humor (as evidenced by the bottles) and involvement with Cancer for College.
So don’t get burned this summer-lather on the ONLY sunscreen that makes you laugh and helps send cancer survivors to college. And remember, this years Cancer for College Golf Classic (September 18, San Diego) hosted by Will Ferrell is selling out fast! Tickets available at the Cancer for College website.

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.

First of all, I was praying that Tina Fey would make an appearance on SNL as Sara Palin. As expected, she did not let me down…Michael Phelps-first impression- looks fantastic in a suit. His short opening monologe was a bit flat, he seemed a bit nervous- Odd, considering he just rocked the Worlds Stage in Beijing…loved the Willliam Shatner cameo plug for Priceline…and some of you may be wondering why SNL paired Americas Golden Boy with Lil Wayne? Seems that during the Olympics, Michael Phelps said that Lil Wayne was his favorite rapper.
I was actually a bit surprised by Lil Wayne…my previous experiences with his entourage had me questioning Wayne as the musical choice, but his performance on SNL was really good-sans the guitar he tried to real-fake-strum, and his super-cool jeans ruined by the fact that his ass was hanging out…Aside from Tina Feys award winning performance as Tits Mcgee, I’d say the best part of Phelps’ appearance on the show were the screen-caps used after commercial breaks. Its not that Phelps did a ‘bad job’, its just that I felt he did a great job when playing himself as opposed to a lame character in a blond wig…but hey, that’s just my opinion.
That’s all I got for ya right now kids…but sit tight, mama’s about to unlock her secret vault of ‘oh-no-they-didn’t-stories’ in the next few days…look out Perez Hilton, Delinda’s bout to rock the world.
