Will Ferrell's Sexy Hot Tan, Sunstroke and Forbidden Fruit SPF 30 sunscreens launched today on Amazon, eBay and www.cancerforcollege.org starting at $11.99. The products are Ferrell's first foray into fundraising products for a charity he has been involved in since his college days.

Cancer for College was formed in 1993 by two-time cancer survivor and double amputee, Craig Pollard. Pollard was a fraternity brother of Will Ferrell at the University of Southern California. Since its inception, Ferrell has been a devoted supporter of the charity and has served as the celebrity host of Cancer for College fundraising events since 2002.

"Some people are charitable with their money. Some are charitable with their time," said Craig Pollard. "Will Ferrell has been extremely generous with both."

The launch of this product significantly expands the organization's ability to help cancer survivors obtain a college education. The organization helps fund everything from text books to full scholarships for kids who have battled cancer and dreamed of going to college, despite the financial hardships of battling their conditions.

"We are obviously appealing to sun worshippers, streakers, art lovers and the ever growing market of body-building golfers," said Ferrell. "We hope that everyone will see the humor in this product and join us in support of a very worthy cause."
