Tipsy Elves makes its mark with its fashionable line of ugly Christmas sweaters and its charitable donation campaign.
Tipsy Elves, home to one of the holiday season's favorite fashion statements, the Ugly Christmas Sweater,
has announced its latest donation campaign. The "$1 for 1 Like"
campaign, currently running on Facebook, is designed to benefit Children
of Shelter and other charitable organizations that serve children in
need. Here's how it works: For every "Like" the Tipsy Elves Facebook page
receives between now and Christmas, the sweater company will donate one
dollar's worth of warm winter clothing and other in-kind gifts to the
charities. The Tipsy Elves hope to attract 50,000 Likes and have
promised that, if they do, they will add an additional $10,000 worth of
merchandise to their donation, magically turning that $50,000 into
$60,000 worth of Christmas goodies to brighten the Christmases of some
very lucky children.
Tipsy Elves, known for its extensive collection of funny Christmas
sweaters, has a wide variety of almost-cultic holiday designs to choose
from. Some of the company's new designs for 2012 include their Candy
Cane Vest, their Yellow Snow Sweater, and a revamped version of their
ever-popular Reindeer Double Date Ski Cardigan. Also new this year are
their children and dog elf sweaters, and for anyone looking for a truly
memorable way to accessorize their favorite ugly Christmas sweater, the
Elves are featuring their new Humping Reindeer Beanie and Humping
In keeping with the spirit of the season – and the spirit of giving
that the company is displaying through its generous Facebook donation
campaign – Tipsy Elves also has a general sweater donation policy called
"Sweaters 4 Sweaters," in which the company donates a portion of the
proceeds from every sweater purchase towards providing new sweaters for
children in need.
the co-founder of the company, says the Elves spend much of their
off-season planning for the holidays. "This is a seasonal business, but
for us, it's a year around business," Mendelsohn stated. According to
Mendelsohn, the design process starts in early January, just weeks after
recovering from the busy December month.
Featured last year in an episode of The Today Show, Tipsy Elves is a
company whose staff enjoys spreading laughter and fun wherever they go.
Anyone who is looking for something fun to buy for this year's
gift-giving, something that will pay off twice – first, by putting a
smile on the gift recipient's face, and then by putting a twinkle in the
eye of the child who will be the beneficiary of the company's donations
– will find a wonderful place to do their holiday shopping at
