"This holiday season, a new wish tops letters to Santa across the land: Impeachment," a narrator says in the new ad from organization March On.

"And just in time, March On's Fight Back PAC offers the gift of impeachment," it continues. "This year, instead of fruitcakes and poinsettias, let's flip Congress for the gift of impeachment."

In the ad, a narrator says those who donate can receive an Impeach Christmas sweater "or a card hand delivered to Donald Trump by our caroling chorus for impeachment."

For a $24 donation, Trump will receive a Christmas card "in your name wishing him a Merry Christmas and a short-lived presidency," according to the description below the ad.

For $69.95, donors can get the "IMPEACH" Christmas sweater.

“We are having a little holiday fun with a serious topic: the need to win the 24 seats necessary to flip the majority in Congress," Andi Pringle, the executive director of March On and a leader of the Women's March on Washington, said in a statement. "Until we do that, many of the issues and values we hold dear — from women’s health to climate change — will be at risk. And no matter what Special Counsel Bob Mueller finds, we are skeptical that this Republican Congress would take action on impeachment.”

The ad started airing Wednesday on shows "popular with liberals," according to NBC News. Shows include MSNBC’s "Morning Joe" and "The Rachel Maddow Show," and TBS's "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee." 

Pringle told NBC News the ad is a "fun Christmas gag." She said it's really about fundraising.

"Because we are the organizers of the Women’s Marches across the country, we are singularly placed to speak to the women’s vote and issue, including the #MeToo movement," she said. 

Earlier this month, six House Democrats introduced five new articles of impeachment revolving around the central theme that the president is a danger to the country.
