The Justin Beiber Hair Auction Raises Money for Needy Animals

Ellen Degeneres' Justin Beiber hair auction has to be one of the most bizarre ways to raise money for charity that I have ever seen. Bieber's gave Degeneres a lock of his hair as a gift -- a gift that she decided to flip on eBay to raise money for The Gentle Barn, an animal rescue charity.

The current bid on the Justin Beiber hair auction is $7,000, a completely reasonable price to pay for a lock of hair. Betting for the hair closes in nearly five days, which should be enough time to drive up the bids into the $10,000 to $15,000 range. Stats for Bizarre Tween Fundraisers Trending: Older & Chilly
