Dhani Jones and his Bow Ties For a Cause organization have teamed up with the U-M C.S. Mott Children's Hospital to offer a limited edition Michigan football themed bow tie.
What started as a way to support a friend is now a philanthropic endeavor that former Wolverine football player and current Cincinnati Bengal linebacker Dhani Jones has expanded to support others.
Through his philanthropic endeavor Bow Ties for a Cause, Jones designed a limited-edition, U-M C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital bow tie that will be sold at Moe Sports Shops and Underground Printing for $55 per bow tie (Jones’ number at U-M) with proceeds benefitting Mott. Bow ties will be sold starting Oct. 15, 2010 at Moe Sports Shops and Underground Printing.
“This is a perfect opportunity to give back to the University that has meant so much to me and my family,” Jones says. “The experience I had at Michigan made me a better person both on and off the field. By supporting the Mott bow tie, we are supporting something greater than ourselves while giving back to Mott patients.”
I don't often wear bow ties, but I think I'll have to put this on my Christmas wish list. I hope you will too.
