Tom Brady shaves head and raises money for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute!
Tom Brady shaves his head and has made our hearts melt. The Patriots quarterback shaved his on Thursday, (March 8, 2018) by shaving his head to benefit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. And according to his representation, shaving his head raised $7.5 million-dollars.
Brady was joined by the governor of Massachusetts, Charlie Baker for the event. And he too, shaved his head.
The event was important to Tom Brady because it hit close to home. He explained that his mother, Galynn is a cancer survivor. It’s understandable why the issue hits him so close to home and we’re glad that he has been able to help because cancer sucks.
Celebrities have always taken this event seriously. Recently, Prince William showed off his shaved head while visiting a Children’s hospital. And celebrities Jessie J, Kate Middleton and Harry Styles have also been involved by donating their strands to “The Little Princess Trust,” an organization that creates wigs for children that have cancer.
Tom Brady uploaded his buzzed head to Instagram and captioned the video. He wrote:
“@Tombrady: They call me Buzzy… Tom Buzzy. 🤔 What a fun #SavingByShaving event today. It was an honor to join the fun and support @DanaFarber and all the great work they do! Thanks for the invite @coachhale5 (Rob Hale) and thank you @piniandco for the haircut! 💯”
How amazing, don’t you agree? Giving back is what we should be doing in life. Have you ever thought of donating your virgin hair to children with cancer? Well, if not here is some great inspiration to take that first step. But remember your hair must not be dyed. It has to be natural, so, if it isn’t and you’ve been wanting to do this make it a goal to grow it out and steer clear of dying it for a little while, it will be worth it because you’ll make a little one smile.
