Colin Hanks on Hanks Kerchiefs in Dispensaries, Veterans and Cannabis
Director, actor and producer Colin Hanks is joining forces with Jushi Holdings Inc. to launch his handkerchief line Hanks Kerchiefs in select BEYOND / HELLO dispensaries—providing assistance to injured veterans at the same time, through a portion of proceeds. The kerchiefs can be found at BEYOND / HELLO retail stores in Santa Barbara, California, locations in Illinois and available online nationwide at Shop Jushi.
Hanks said he’s an avid supporter of veterans “without question,” who are often down and out, due to trauma and other physical and mental injuries, and are among the loudest voices in support of medical cannabis. As an actor, his support for veterans is expressed through roles throughout his career such as his portrayal of Lieutenant Jones in the World War II miniseries Band of Brothers—created by Hanks’ father and Steven Spielberg and based on historian Stephen E. Ambrose’s 1992 book.
That’s part of the reason why a portion of each Hanks Kerchief sold will go to support specific charities such as Homes for Our Troops, a nonprofit organization that builds custom homes, adapted for severely injured post-9/11 veterans who are seeking to rebuild their lives at a pivotal point.
Hanks scored repeated roles alongside actors such as Jack Black in
