Microsoft is selling ugly MS Paint sweaters, and a portion of the money benefits Girls Who Code.
Microsoft is getting into the slotxo holidays early today, offering MS Paint-themed "ugly" sweaters for sale in its online store, with a portion of the proceeds from each sale donated to Girls Who Code. The company has made Windows XP and 95 sweaters in the past to give to influencers and die-hard fans. But this is the first time that a company sells sweaters directly to customers.This morning there were three short Microsoft “sweaters” available: the previously mentioned MS Paint sweater and the rest of the Windows 95 and XP sweaters.
First, those XP and 95 sweaters are already in stock, very few are left in stock, and as of now, there are only MS Paint sweaters this year. You can check out all three strains in the gallery below to see what you might have missed.Microsoft has enjoyed these promotions before, even packing older Windows XP sweaters in a Windows XP-style box.Since MS Paint is preinstalled on Windows rather than sold separately, it's hard to know how this year's sweaters will come in the package.
But hopefully, Microsoft's dull outlook continues. It was clear that the company had the sweater fan at number one. Could it be a hidden influence of Bill Gates?Regardless of the source, the MS Paint sweatshirts are still available for $ 69.99 each, with $ 20 off each sale going directly to Girls Who Code from today, Dec. 1 through Dec. 23. Microsoft said it plans to donate a minimum of $ 50,000 to the nonprofit organization through this promotion. If you're not familiar with Girls Who Code, Girls Who Code is a non-profit dedicated to getting more women into computer science, offering classes and educational resources.
The ugliness of these sweaters is up for debate. (Personally, I think the MS Paint sweater looks pretty cool.) But if you miss the old version of Windows, now you can throw a digital sweater themed party.Microsoft also offers Windows backgrounds. And MS Paint for Skype and Teams if you like, it looks like you're stuck in a drawing you created on your parent's computer while video chatting.You can now buy this MS Paint Ugly Sweater and get some nice benefits.
