This year we are wearing ugly Christmas sweaters for 12 full days or until we raise $1,200. We can only remove our sweaters for 15 minutes once a day while we shower.

Your donation goes to support career exploration and job training skills workshops for Portland high school students. You can donate here. Follow along
