News-Antique.com - Sep 16,2011 - Specialist collectibles company Paul Fraser Collectibles today announced the acquisition of Justin Bieber’s hair from his famous haircut.
In February 2011 Justin Bieber had a haircut that generated headlines around the world.
Justin donated part of the hair to US TV star Ellen Degeneres who auctioned it on eBay to raise money for her favourite charity, the Gentle Barn.
However the bulk of the hair was donated to Justin's favourite charity, Pencils of Promise. Pencils of Promise in turn contacted Paul Fraser Collectibles whom acquired the hair in return for a sizeable donation that will be used to build a new school and increase educational opportunities in the developing world.
Paul Fraser commented,
“It was a privilege to be able to support "Pencils of Promise", an excellent charity, and help them to build a new school through our donation. Also, we are now able to offer a very personal item from one of the most popular and well known people on the Planet, who is still only 17 years of age.”
“It is one of those rare times when you can say it is truly a win-win situation for everyone involved, and an opportunity for all our customers to secure a special piece of memorabilia, and help a charity along the way..”
The hair is now to be offered for sale in individual pieces allowing Bieber fans around the world to own the ultimate personal piece of Bieber memorabilia.
In addition all purchasers will also be entered into a free prize draw with the opportunity to win a genuine signed photo of the pop superstar himself.
