I don’t even remember any more why I was looking at the Fred Flare website in the first place. But as I was tooling around the site I came across what I thought at first was a joke: Will Ferrell endorsed sunscreen which benefits Cancer for College. My husband is a big Will Ferrell fan so I thought buying him this sunscreen as part of a Father’s Day gift would be fun and a great surprise as well.
It turns out that Will Ferrell is a long time friend of the guy who founded the non-profit organization Cancer for College. Craig Pollard founded Cancer for College after battling and surviving cancer twice before he turned 20. Realizing that many families use up all their savings just to save the lives of their kids who have cancer he wanted to help those kids realize their dream of going to college. The non-profit holds an annual golf tournament fundraiser which Will Ferrell always participates in, and now Ferrell has also lent his name and image (well partial image) to a sunscreen whose proceeds benefit the group.
The sunscreen is spf 30 and has a lightweight feel. It went on easily and sunk in quickly. I definitely recommend it for use this summer.
