Gorilla Glue Girl Won't Keep Her GoFundMe Haul

Tessica Brown, better known as Gorilla Glue Girl, will not be keeping the cash she raised on GoFundMe from sympathetic fans nationwide.


The 40-year-old from Louisiana will give away $20,000, the bulk of the funds she's raised thus far, to a non-profit called the Restore Foundation.



The organization provides reconstructive surgery to those who need it, but can't afford it.


The organization was started by Dr. Michael Obeng. He is the surgeon who successfully restored Brown's hair after she ran out of hairspray and decided to use Gorilla Glue adhesive spray instead.


Brown will keep any funds over $20,000 to pay for the emergency room visit she made at home.



Brown was going to use the money to pay for wigs, but decided to make the donation.


She has been contacted by Beyoncé's hairstylist, Neal Farinah, who's planned a trip to New Orleans to go shopping with her for wigs.
