Walker Hayes is launching the “Be A Craig Fund,” which he created as a tribute to a man named Craig who gave his family a van when they were struggling.  The van was big enough that it allowed all six of Walker’s children to travel together safely.  Walker says, “I wanna be a ‘Craig.’ I want to give back and this fund allows us to do so together.”  Donations can be made through the Be A Craig Foundation website.
