AdoptUgly focuses on getting dogs adopted who would otherwise be left in shelters due to age, appearance, or size. This event and campaign encouraged viewers to “adopt ugly” by relating the dog’s shortcomings to our ugly (yet humorous) choices of the past. The event was founded by Julia and funded by the Sappi Ideas That Matter grant (an award given to only 9 designers across the country) in 2014/2015. www.adoptugly.com
