Some Cincinnati Bengals players shopped for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America.

Several players including Benjarvus Green Ellis and Bruce Gradowski took some time out of their schedules to help shop at the American Eagle store in the Kenwood Towne Center.

America Eagle teamed up with different NFL franchises to reward academic excellence to "littles" in the program.

"We are extremely excited that American Eagle Outfitters is working so hard to sell one million gift cards to create one million moments of mentoring to support Big Brothers Big Sisters," said Charles Pierson, President and Chief Executive Officer, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. "Also by teaming with select NFL franchises, American Eagle is creating meaningful mentoring moments for the kids participating who will cherish the experience."
