2017 Ugly Christmas Suit Fundraiser- Harness Digital Marketing

The 2017 Ugly Christmas Suit Fundraiser

This is the fourth year to wear the #UglyChristmasSuit and go around Southern Illinois to spread Christmas Cheer. Our first year we raised money and bikes for 2 local charities: Gumdrops and The Southern Illinois Bike Giveaway at the Williamson County Pavillion. Year 2 we raised over $4,425 for a local Veteran’s Charity, Marion Team Red White & Blue. Last year we raised over $5,000 for The Promise in Marion.

The only place now is to GO BIG or GO HOME. I’ve enlisted my buddy, Kevin Hunsperger, to help me spread twice as much Christmas Cheer and raise $7,500 for Children’s Home + Aid.

Kevin Hunsperger and I will wear the Ugly Christmas Suits and spread some Christmas Cheer throughout Southern Illinois while raising money for a charity that gets little or no publicity. We’ll come to your location, event, or organization, take a photo or video and give you a plug on social media. You get advertising by making a donation and the charity gets 100% of the donation. If you would like to schedule a date and time for us to stop by your business or organization, please fill out the form below. This helps us make sure we get to everyone. Remember that these are done by donation, so anything you can donate would be greatly appreciated.

This year we are going to set a goal of $7,500 and help children and families with Adoption Support and Youth and Family Services. The Children’s Home + Aid offers professional counseling and support for families who have post-adopted children.

Their Mission is: To give children help, hope and opportunity.

Their Vision is: To Build a better life for children, youth, and families.

Children’s Home + Aid is a leading child and family service agency in Illinois. They help children recover their health, their hope, and their faith in the people around them.

They link children to a network of opportunity and care, to extended family, teachers, mentors, and the resources of their neighborhood and community. For more than 130 years, they go wherever children and families need them, and where that work has been proven to be most effective: at home, in the classroom, in the neighborhood, in the course of daily life. Their offices are located across Illinois and serve more than 40,000 children and families each year in over 60 counties.


There are 2 ways:
