NEW YORK, Nov. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Keeping the tradition of bringing comfort and joy to shoppers this holiday season, UGG Australia will partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of America for the fourth year in a row, hosting a register drive to raise funds for the organization. All 41 domestic UGG Australia stores (including 22 concept stores and 19 outlets) will participate in the holiday initiative, kicking off November 29th and running through December 31st.
