Salma Hayek's philanthropic spirit has already rubbed off on her 8-year-old daughter, Valentina. The actress, 49, shared an Instagram photo of Valentina's exceedingly long brown hair along with a caption explaining the inspiring reason she's growing it out.

"My daughter Valentina is growing her beautiful mane so she can cut it and donate it to make a wig for children with cancer. Now that is the spirit of Christmas," the proud mom captioned the photo of her daughter's wavy, waist-length locks.

Nonprofit organizations like Wigs for Kids and Locks of Love transform donated hair into beautiful, realistic wigs for financially disadvantaged children who have lost their hair due to medical treatment.

Go Valentina!
