He is calling it “Hawk’s Locks for Kids”.
Linebacker A.J. Hawk of the Green Bay Packers, known for the long golden locks of hair flowing out from the bottom of his helmet, has cut them off to benefit a charity that provides wigs for children who lose their hair due to medical treatments.
He is asking his fans to do the same. All the locks, at least 12 inches long, will be sent to Wigs for Kids, based in Westlake, Ohio.
“We are hoping to raise enough money and hair donations to change many lives! … No child should have to feel ashamed of themselves due to a disease,” Hawk said on Twitter.
