New England Patriots star Julian Edelman is donating his beard clippings in a charity auction, and the bids have already passed $2,000.
The NFL wide receiver appeared on The Ellen Show recently and shaved off his famous whiskers, with the host now offering them up to the highest bidder.
"Don’t miss your chance to win New England Patriots Star and Super Bowl LIII MVP Julian Edelman’s beard trimmings shaved on The Ellen DeGeneres Show!" a description of the Charitybuzz campaign reads.
"New England Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman visited The Ellen DeGeneres Show just days after the Patriots won Super Bowl LIII. Edelman, who had been growing out his bountiful beard for the whole season, let Ellen shave his bristles off on the show to raise money for a special charity of his choice," the overview continues. "Now you can own the hair of this year’s Super Bowl MVP and help raise money for the Boys & Girls Club of Boston."
"The auction includes the trimmings of Edelman’s hair that were shaved off on the show, kept within a resealable zipper storage bag. You’ll also receive a photograph of the trim in progress, autographed by Ellen DeGeneres," the description adds. "Let’s face it, this unique Super Bowl souvenir will be hair today, gone tomorrow so bid today!"
