During Week #13 of the 2016 regular season, NFL players were allowed the opportunity to highlight the charitable organization or causes that are important to them by donning customized cleats in-game as part of the NFL's My Cause, My Cleats campaign.
NFL Auction has been featuring weekly online auctions of the autographed game-worn cleats where 100% of funds raised will be donated to the charities selected by the players.
Beginning at 11am CST, Saints Wide Receiver Willie Snead IV's autographed cleats and matching gloves from the New Orleans Saints versus Detroit Lions game will go live on the auction's site.
Snead's selected charity is 50LEGS (www.50legs.org) whose purpose is to provide amputees with the necessary care and prosthetics that they could not otherwise afford and to help them live a happier and healthier life.
"My mother introduced me to the fundraising coordinator of the organization (50 Legs), Ms. Tiffany Willis. I had an opportunity to hear her story and listen to the incredibly inspirational path she has traveled and it moved me. When I heard about the opportunity we had with the cleats, I knew this was an opportunity for me to showcase 50 Legs to a bigger audience. I'm able to join that fight through my play and with my shoes I am putting inspirational words that the kids gave me and what they best described the journey that they go through" said Snead.
