Tom Brady Has A Brand-New Buzz Cut, And It's All For A Good Cause

"They call me Buzzy."

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady donated his time, and his hair, to a good cause on Thursday. The NFL star had his head shaved to help raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and he's already rocking the new look.

The buzz took place at Granite Telecommunications' 5th Annual Saving by Shaving event, in which 1,200 employees, family members, and friends had their heads or beards shaved for the cause. According to Business Wire, Granite donated $6.5 million at the event, bringing the grand total since 2014 to $21.2 million.

Brady was joined by Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker and other public figures from the area. He posted a snowy video showing off the resulting buzz cut on Instagram, writing in the caption, "They call me Buzzy... Tom Buzzy." He added that it was an "honor to join the fun."

"The way we all came together today to respond to the cancer epidemic speaks volumes to the character of our community," Granite CEO Rob Hale said in a statement. "From Tom Brady and Gov. Baker to local businesses, city and state officials, the Granite team, friends, family and customers, so many people united behind Dana-Farber's mission to defeat cancer. We can and will do just that — cure cancer. I'm very grateful for everyone's support and so proud to call this community home."

As Sports Illustrated points out, Brady's mother Galynn is a cancer survivor, so this gesture probably carried a lot of meaning for him. He joins teammate Rob Gronkowski in head-shaving for a good cause. The tight end has participated in the One Mission Buzz Off, benefiting children with cancer, for several years now.
