It's the most wonderful time of the year for one very charitable sweater buyer -- and the veterans and disabled children who will reap the benefits of its hefty price tag.
Rapper 2 Chainz's self-proclaimed “World’s Most Expensivest Ugly Christmas Sweater” went for a whopping $90,000. A joint effort with personal jeweler Avianne, the black blinged-out sweater wows with 50 carats of diamonds and 250 grams of gold. The sweater is currently listed as "sold out" on 2 Chainz's shop site.
Proceeds from the hip-hop artist's fancy holiday sweater benefit his non-profit, T.R.U. Foundation, which assists vets and disabled children and supports arts education in Atlanta, Georgia and the surrounding areas.
Last year, 2 Chainz raised $2 million for T.R.U. Foundation with sales from his "Dabbin' Santa" collection. "This year, the mission is simple -- to help as many people as we possibly can," 2 Chainz writes on the foundation's website. "... The new collection will act as our vehicle to bringing real assistance to people and families that are looking for a little boost this holiday season. Join our movement. Let's aspire to inspire and bring cheer this holiday season."
And not just with ugly sweaters. Check out the video below to see Madonna putting smiles on the faces of LGBT youth in Brooklyn.
