Poverty has always been a huge problem in our societies. No matter how rich one country is, there will always be people who starve and live out in the streets. No matter the reason that each homeless person got to that point, each government and city administrations should take care of those in need. Church does a lot of work by offering meals and clothes to those who need them, but serious help is not coming from the top. It’s citizens who decide to offer their help to anyone who needs it and they are the ones that ease their pain a little bit.
Brennon Jones is a Philadelphia-based barber with an 11-year-old career.
And he is not just good at his job.
He sets his ‘shop’ on the side of the road of pavements and will cut the hair of anyone who is in need.
How nice of him is that?
He sometimes completes more than 20 haircuts a day and even travels to poor neighborhoods to do his job.
Seriously, more power to him!
Brennon would have to put his project on hold during the winter because of the weather conditions.
It all worked out, though, wanna know how?
Then, a complete stranger offered him a barbershop and told him to have if he wanted it.
I can’t believe there is so much kindness out there!
He still opens his doors to the homeless of mondays, when he also offers them a free meal.
What he does should be an example for all of us.
He believes that for those people a haircut is not just that, but also a boost for their self-esteem.
He couldn’t have put it better.
Brennon’s goal is life to serve the people and give some love to those who haven’t got it in their lives.
It’s initiatives like Brennon’s that give homeless people courage and make them feel like they are not completely abandoned in life. Even if he is a stranger, he shows everyone that he will always be there for them.
