With some of the boys and girls from St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital at his side, Chip Gaines cut his hair down to the skin.

“We are leaving Memphis changed. Kiddos of @stjude we go with your faces on our minds and your stories in our hearts,” Joanna Gaines captioned a photo of her husband. “Thank you for letting us be a part of your home at Target House. We are cheering you on every step of the way.”

Fans of the couple quickly chimed in to offer their praise and support.

“My heart can’t take it!” one Instagram user commented.

“This makes me all kinds of happy,” another wrote.

Last week, Chip Gaines urged his fans to donate to the hospital.
