Leading into his first full-length release, Jeff "Congo" Franca, creator of Congo Sanchez, has shed his signature dreadlocks in support of less toxic treatments for childhood cancers. Having suffered the loss of his younger brother to Neuroblastoma, Congo holds this cause very dearly to his heart. The idea to raise money and shed the dreads was met with an overwhelming amount of support. Within a few days of announcing his fundraising campaign he had cleared his goal of $15,000. He has since raised over $23,000 and there is still two weeks left to donate! If you would like to donate please click here: igg.me/at/shedthedreads/x. All of the money raised goes to Band of Parents, an organization that has been set up and is run by the Franca family and other passionate individuals. Although the campaign continues onward, the dreads have not. Enjoy this message from Congo and his family as they celebrate the life of his brother and the official shedding of the dreads!
