The Bengals will take on the Los Angeles Chargers at Paul Brown Stadium on Sunday, Dec. 5 and some of the players will be wearing their hearts on their cleats. The game will highlight the annual 'My Cause, My Cleats' initiative, where players from around the league bring awareness to charitable efforts that are important to them.

Eleven members of the Bengals are participating in the league-wide campaign this season with the intent of supporting different philanthropic endeavors. And new this year, Bengals fans will have the opportunity to join the players in supporting some of these causes!

By simply buying a ticket to the game through a dedicated purchasing link (see below), $5 of every seat's purchase price will go directly to that particular charity. Those interested just need to click the accompanying "Support" button below, next to the charity they're interested in supporting, and then proceed with the ticket buying process as normal.

The following Bengals players and charities are slated to participate this season. For those fans that already have tickets but would still like to support a certain player's cause, you can donate directly by following the links to the charity's website.
