Falcons Linebacker Kaden Elliss Supports Georgia Kids Belong
During Weeks 13 and 14, NFL players are wearing customized cleats in honor of the causes they have chosen to support through My Cause My Cleats. Atlanta Falcons linebacker Kaden Elliss has named Georgia Kids Belong as his charity of choice.
NFL players “wear their hearts on their feet” through My Cause My Cleats where they have the opportunity to choose a cause that is important to them and represent it on custom designed cleats. Players then have the option to donate their cleats to NFL Auction where you can make their custom cleats yours. All proceeds from sales go to the respective causes selected by players.
