Man shaves head after reaching Feeding America donation goal

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

With hair salons and barber shops shutdown, one man decided to give himself a haircut for a good cause.

Daniel Rael decided he wanted to Shave the World from COVID-19 for his birthday and set a goal to raise $2,500 for the Feeding America Foundation.

He took to social media to and was able to surpass his goal by more than $1,000. His promise - to shave his head after the goal was met.

Rael live streamed his haircut over multiple social media platforms Saturday. He says his hair will eventually grow back and it was a small price to pay to help feed families in need. 

"I saw all over the news that there was a lot of families going hungry and you know it hit my heart in a very certain way where it's just like 'hey I've got to do something, I've got to help out', because you know I was still lucky enough to have food and have a job," he said. "It scared me knowing that other Americans weren't getting the same necessities."

Rael said he got the idea from birthday donation requests on Facebook.
