Green Bay Packer, A.J. Hawk has decided to lose his trademark locks. He originally grew his hair long in 2005 as a tribute to the late Pat Tillman, the former NFL player who lost his life with the U.S. Army while serving in Afghanistan. Not only has he cut his hair to help children with cancer, but he has started his own charity.A.J. and his wife, Laura, have started Hawk's Locks for Kids, a local spin-off of Wigs for Kids, which provides hairpieces for children who have lost their hair during cancer treatments.

Via his Twitter page on Friday, he announced, "Today is a special day for me as I've decided to cut off my hair and give it to someone who needs it more than I do." Here's a look at his new cut! That's a lot of hair!

A.J. continued to tweet about the organization saying;

"Thanks to wigs for kids for partnering with us,my wife and I are proud to start Hawk's locks for Kids which will be helping kids with cancer"

"No child should have to feel ashamed of themselves due to a disease."

"We are hoping to raise enough money and hair donations to change many lives!"

Hawk went on the say that donated hair must be at least 12 inches long and can be mailed to:

Hawk's Locks For Kids, 4890 Blazer Pkwy #B, Dublin, OH 43017
