Ellen auctions off Justin Bieber's hair for animal rescue charity

Ellen Degeneres, talk show host and longtime vegan, sent out a tweet in January stating how she wished to have a lock of Justin Bieber’s hair for her birthday.

Justin Bieber, who has been getting involved with animal rights organizations such as PETA, cut his signature hair in late February, remembering to send Ellen a piece as a belated birthday gift.

Ellen decided to put her gift to good use by auctioning off the hair on Ebay.

With only one day left until the auction closes, the bid is already at $12,500.00. All of the earnings will be donated to an animal rescue organization The Gentle Barn Foundation.

Visit Ebay before March 2nd to view the auction, or to place a bid yourself.
