Although Mason Platter has only been a member of Wisconsin’s football team for a couple of months, he may have already won over the hearts of Badgers fans.
On Sunday, the linebacker took to Twitter to announce that he has cut his hair to donate it to Wigs For Kids, a charitable organization that creates wigs from real hair and provides those custom wigs for free to children that have lost their hair for any reason.
By the looks of it, Platter has a lot of hair to donate. Here is his tweet:
So after 2 years, 5 months and 10 days I finally did it. I decided to donate to @wigsforkids because they do not charge the families for the wigs! Making a wig is an expensive process however. Everyone go to their page and drop a donation! pic.twitter.com/yiKlOGuAY3
