If you are/know a tween girl, you may have heard that teen pop sensation Justin Bieber cut his signature swooping locks. But did you know the hair he cut off will benefit animals?
Bieber auctioned off his former hair, kept in a clear glass box autographed by the singer, and the proceeds will benefit The Gentle Barn, a nonprofit animal sanctuary home to more than 100 farm animals rescued from abuse and neglect.
You might think some tufts of hair wouldn’t score big bucks, but not when that hair comes from the Bieb’s golden head! The winning bid, 100% of which goes the The Gentle Barn, was more than $40,000! No word on who the lucky (and generous) winner is.
In the past, Bieber used his fame to help animals in a Peta2 ad encouraging people to adopt pets from shelters.
It seems Bieber is a friend to both shelter pets and farm animals — will his advocacy work turn you into a “Belieber”? Watch the clip below to see Bieber presenting his chopped locks on Ellen:
