Atlanta based member owned sports organization, Allied Athlete Group Foundation (AAG Foundation), continues their philanthropic work in communities across the country. Sam Madison, 11-year NFL veteran had been sponsoring free haircuts for kids to go back to school for the past five years and approached friend and former NFL player and President/Founder Reggie Howard of Allied Athlete Group Foundation to encourage their members and other professional athletes to do the same. With training camp underway, many current pro football and basketball players teamed up with AAG Foundation in sponsoring such a program in either their team or hometown cities in their absence.

On Saturday, August 22, 2009, AAG Foundation along with a host of current and former professional athletes will sponsor a National Back to School Haircut Day. Each player chose their favorite barbershop to partner with where the first 50 kids will receive FREE haircuts courtesy of that professional athlete. A total of 1,000 Free Haircuts will be given on AAG Foundation's National Back to School Haircut Day. Corporate partners include Mr. Samuel McNabb & The National Football Players Father's Association; Dr. G. & Chris Carter-Orthopedic Associates of Naperville; Stanley Blue-Met Life; LaTonya P. Story-LPS Consulting PR; and Claudie Johnson-Fifth Third Bank. For more information about Allied Athlete Group Foundation visit: http://www.aagfoundation.org. "Together We Will Make A Difference."
