Cause We Care
Learn about the incredible organization behind the hot sauce craze
This isn’t the first time we’ve featured the Husky Ticket Project in our Cause We Care section and we’re sure it won’t be the last! They’ve been doing incredible work long before the #HotSauceHuskies collaboration and it’s so awesome to see them getting so much love on a national level! As of today, they’ve raised an incredible $54,000 since @BpenfieldJ’s historic shot of hot sauce during the Marquette game and can now send 5,400 kids to future UConn sporting events as a result!
We encourage everyone to take part in the hot sauce challenge on Twitter (CLICK HERE for inspiration) and donate to this exciting cause if you haven’t done so already! Please enjoy this video to experience the true magic of the Husky Ticket Project and thank you for showing the country what UConn Nation is all about:
