If you’re a reader of NFL Spin Zone, you have noticed that we like to take away time to dedicate it to the NFL players who use the platform they are given for a good cause. Today, I couldn’t pass up to opportunity to spread the word on what Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has done.

Newton posted a picture today on his official Facebook page that was very touching and deserved the attention.

You may have noticed this offseason that Cam Newton’s hair has been getting a little longer than usual and there is a good reason for that. Newton was growing his hair out for charity and to raise money for a local hospital and charity. Here is the picture and message that Newton shared with the fans:

Some of you might have noticed my hair got a bit longer in the off season. I hadn’t cut it since the last game of last season, and that day marked a new phase in the mission to get better. The daily growth was a reminder of the need to stay steady and consistent. Now that I just got faded up and the beginning of the 2012 season is now, I’m using this opportunity to help others who may need a bo

ost. I will be donating my hair to Wigs For Kids and also raising money for Carolinas HealthCare System Levine Children’s Hospital to help kids who are battling some serious health issues . To find out how you can join me in supporting Wig for Kids or the Levine Children’s Hospital, check out the attached links. Those who help have the chance to receive signed photos, footballs, jerseys or Panthers tickets!

Props to Cam Newton for doing such a great thing. It’s great to see NFL players take the time out to help those who are in need. Newton has shown on the field that he is a great young leader and he has done the same off the field. Again, bravo.
