Country music star, Walker Hayes, is launching his ‘Be A Craig Fund’ as a tribute to a man named Craig who gave Hayes and his family a van when they were struggling to make ends meet. The unexpected and incredibly generous act meant that the Hayes family would finally have a vehicle big enough for all six of their children to travel together safely. Kindness and selflessness are at the heart of the ‘Be A Craig Fund’ and Hayes’ goal is to shine a light on not only those in need but also those who are willing to step-up to help.
“I wanna be a ‘Craig,’” says Hayes. “I want to be more selfless and look outward. I want to give back and this fund allows us to do so, together.”
“Craig” also serves as Hayes’ latest single from his studio album, boom (Monument Records.) The heartfelt tribute has been resonating with fans and critics alike. The song, in conjunction with the ‘Be A Craig Fund,’ encourages us all to be a beacon of hope for others who may be going through a tough time.
Fans will be able to submit a story of someone they would like to “be a Craig” for, buy a “Be A Craig” t-shirt with all proceeds going to the fund, or can make a simple donation. Several of the stories submitted will be chosen along the way and profits from donations and t-shirt sales will be used to aide those special people just looking for a little help.
