So how much would you pay for a celebrity lock of hair?  How about a lock of Justin Bieber's hair...  well, some folks will pay big bucks apparently...

Justin Bieber is having a charitable birthday week.  After the pop star's buzzed-about haircut, he gave a signed box of his hair to Ellen DeGeneres to auction off for charity.  The bidding ended Wednesday, with the locks selling for 40-thousand-668-dollars.  All of the proceeds are going to the California animal rescue organization The Gentle Barn Foundation. 

Bieber also asked his fans on Twitter to donate money to Charity: Water.  He set a goal of 17-thousand-dollars and, as of Wednesday, more than two-thousand people had donated bringing the total to more than 44-thousand-dollars and growing. 

As for the now 17-year-old's actual birthday celebrations on March 1st, he flew his grandma in to  celebrate with her famous cheesecake.  Next up for Bieber is the European leg of his "My World Tour," which kicks off Friday in Birmingham, England.
