It's The Best Selfie You'll Take All Year

On December 18, help us celebrate National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day by sharing a selfie and spreading the word about giving an alternative Heifer gift this holiday season. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3

1) Put on your favorite ugly holiday sweater

2) Snap a selfie (We’ll pick some of our favorites and re-share them)

3) Share it on December 18, and tag it with #GiveHeifer

And it gets better — each time someone shares a sweater selfie on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #GiveHeifer, $5 will be donated* to send life-changing Heifer animals (sans the sweaters) to families in need. If you don't have an ugly holiday sweater, or you just don't feel like sharing a selfie, you can use the adorable animals-in-sweaters photos you'll find below or here.

Feel free to copy these sample posts when you share your selfie, or write your own clever message. Just remember to include #GiveHeifer
