Caught Caring: Will Ferrell and Cancer For College
Funnyman Will Ferrell is used to making people laugh, and now he’s lending his comedic skills to a good cause. The 41-year-old father of two recently partnered with Cancer for College to launch ‘WILLPOWERED’ sunscreen in three giggle-inducing varieties: Sexy Hot Tan, Forbidden Fruit and Sun Stroke. Sold in 6 oz. bottles, the sunscreens are PABA-free, alcohol-free, mineral oil-free and fragrance-free, offering UVA/UVB broad spectrum protection in a light, non-greasy formula enriched with aloe and Vitamin E.
For Will — whose former fraternity brother at the University of Southern California Craig Pollard, a two-time cancer survivor, founded Cancer For College in 1993 — the opportunity was too good to pass up. “The bottle says it all,” he quips. “I’ve always dreamed of owning a lotion company.” Will adds,
“Honestly, 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.”
Priced at $12 each (or order all three and they’ll throw in a t-shirt for $40), 100% of the net proceeds from WILLPOWERED go directly to Cancer For College’s scholarship fun, which provides scholarships to college-bound cancer survivors. The good times will only continue; In September, Will has signed on to host a golf classic and live auction in Rancho Bernardo, California to benefit the organization.
Will is dad to 5-year-old Magnus and 2-year-old Mattias with actress Viveca Paulin, his wife of eight years.
