The league also announced that this week players started sharing images of their cleats and the stories behind them on social media, using the hashtag #mycausemycleats. In addition, the NFL announced this week that players will have the opportunity to raise funds for the cause of their choosing by auctioning their cleats off at NFL Auction; 100% of funds raised will be donated to charities selected by players—all designated charities must have 501c3 status.
