Helping a child in need is bettering one’s life indeed, or so the saying goes. Ugg Austrialia ‘s Art & Sole 2008 does just that, with bids/sales benefiting the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Boots by Ugg are painted with signature designs from the likes of Matthew McConaughey, Jessican Simpson (her second year), Cindy Crawford, Kelly Ripa, Ashley Tisday, and many, many more. The one-of-a-kind art designs are auctioned off online, with bids beginning December 1 through December 14 at ugg’s website. In case you are not familiar with St. Judes Hospital, it was started by Danny Thomas – father, actor, childhood activist – in Memphis, Tennessee many decades ago. His work continues on through the ALSAC and its fundraising efforts, not to mention Marlo Thomas, Danny’s daughter, whose tireless efforts help to keep catastrophic childhood diseases and cancer at the forefront of hope for a cure and research. So, do bid for a good cause, and check out the extensive Ugg boutique here at Zappos.com.
