Just a week after shaving off Patriots receiver Julian Edelman’s beard for charity, Ellen DeGeneres has repurposed the trimmings for a good cause.
The shavings are currently up for auction on the Charitybuzz website, with proceeds going to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston. The first bid is listed at $1,000 and the auction is open until 3:21 p.m. on Feb. 22.
When DeGeneres originally shaved No. 11’s beard on her show, she donated $10,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston, which Edelman matched.
According to the listing, the highest bidder will receive the beard clippings in a plastic bag and a signed photograph from DeGeneres of her shaving Edelman. Both come with signed letters of authenticity from DeGeneres.
Charitybuzz encourages fans to act fast, because the beard trimmings are “hair today, gone tomorrow.”Lillian Brown can be reached at email@example.com. Follow her on Twitter @lilliangbrown.
