Rapper 2 Chainz is bringing a holiday favorite back this season: his “Dabbin’ Santa” ugly Christmas sweater. Last year, his apparel for the fashion-challenged helped lift spirits at holiday parties across the country, and now it’s returning for a good cause. Proceeds will benefit Chainz’s T.R.U. Foundation, which provides help to families in need through the holiday season.
“Bout to change some lives,” the rapper announced on Instagram. “If you have a situation or know a family who’s in a bad place… you can submit stories on my website 2chainzshop.com. I’m looking for families to help. Each sweater SOLD is going to help a family.”
On the 2 Chainz website, he broke down this year’s mission in more detail.
“This year, the mission is simple – to help as many people as we possibly can. I want you, my fans, to submit stories about people you know that are in need. Whether it’s a neighbor, friend or a complete stranger, if you know they are need, please tell us their story. From there, we’ll select a few stories to donate our energy and proceeds from the new 2016 Dabbin Santa collection to. 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.”
