There’s few things that make me happier than seeing professional athletes giving back. I had the privilege of sitting down with Saints linebacker, Jonathan Vilma, in October to discuss his work with the ‘Jonathan Vilma Foundation’, which benefits those affected after the earthquake in Haiti.
Today, I’d like to let Who Dat Nation know about another amazing effort in the community, headed up by punter Thomas Morstead.
Thomas Morstead’s efforts will once again benefit the St. Baldrick’s Foundation. If you aren’t familiar with them, St. Baldrick’s benefits childhood cancer research. Volunteers have awarded $127 million in grants since 2005, and nearly $25 million in 2013 alone.
Thomas Morstead’s message to any fans interested for the event:
What’s up New Orleans? I’m shaving my head and beard again to raise money for childhood cancer research! Childhood cancer research is extremely underfunded. So I decided to do something about it by raising money for cures. YOUR HELP IS NEEDED!!! My goal is to get 100 people to shave their head with me. So what are you waiting for? Join my team, shave your head and help surpass last years total of $140,000 raised. FYI-the event is held at Finn McCool’s Irish Pub. First drink is on me.
TEAM ‘What You Give Will Grow’
Last year, Morstead gained much prestige across the league for shaving his head to benefit charity.
