SWAGG” to Make Donations to Stand Up To Cancer for a Portion of the Gift Values Offered to VIP Guests During the Sundance Film Festival
January 11, 2011 – WHAT: SWAGG™ is a new mobile application that is changing the way of gifting. The application, that allows consumers to buy, send and swap SWAGG GIFTS, as well as manage offers and makes plastic gift cards and rewards digital, will present the “House of SWAGG” – a VIP gifting (with a conscience) boutique in Park City, Utah for a limited engagement during the Sundance Film Festival.

Stand Up To Cancer raises funds to accelerate groundbreaking cancer research and engages the public in supporting the scientists working to end the disease.
