Making a Difference with his Mullet- Jack Goodhue is calling on us kiwis to do the #summerofthemullet with him

Jack doesn’t want his mullet to define him. What does define him is his faith, strong values and beliefs. And a big part of that is helping others in need.And for Kiwi Rugby star Jack Goodhue, the man with NZ’s most famous mullet, now he is using that mullet to make a difference. He doesn’t have the word “Good” in his name for nothing!

Jack has been working with AngelMama and the Bald Angels team and is really passionate about supporting the work they do with the vulnerable young people in his beloved Northland community. Supporting some of the most at-risk youth in the country who are losing their way to living a healthy and sustainable life. Jack is reaching out to all New Zealanders to join him in making this summer the ‘Summer of the Mullet’.

Watch out for more  Summer of the Mullet for more info on our Facebook, Instagram, and right here on our website before this year is out…. It’s gonna get a little hairy around here!
