“Craig” tells the powerful story of a man from Walker’s church that helped him in his time of need, by giving him a minivan for his 6 kids. On a day like Giving Tuesday, a movement to create an international day of charitable giving at the beginning of the Christmas season, Walker reminds us all to lend a helping hand wherever we can.
“I’m grateful for some of the scariest days of my life..w/o them the story of Craig wouldn’t have happened. The Be A Craig Fund lets me be a Craig. Giving away our first donation next Tuesday and celebrating #GivingTuesday by releasing the music vid for Craig.”
The Be A Craig Fund was established by Walker Hayes as a tribute to a man named Craig who gave the Hayes’ family a van when they were struggling. His kindness meant that the family would have a vehicle big enough for all of the Hayes children to have a seatbelt.
In keeping with the sentiment of paying it forward, and through gifts to support nonprofits that empower others to make the path easier, Walker wants to encourage individuals to seek out opportunities to help others.
