While walking through any major city across the globe, you’ll likely see several homeless people sitting on sidewalks and struggling to survive against the odds.
Most of us are guilty of turning a blind eye on those poor souls, but Mikey the Barber and the folks at Male Essentials, his salon in Vancouver, Canada, made it their mission to help as many disadvantaged individuals as they could as they welcomed the new year in 2013. That’s when they stumbled upon the gentleman below who was clearly in need of some kindness.
The man, who goes by the name Flipper, was instantly grateful for their offer of a fresh shave, a haircut, and a new outfit.
It seems like he’s gone quite a long time without any of those comforts, but he still has a vibrant personality.
As he chats with Mikey and the crew, he confesses to being a “pinball wizard” and that his skills with the game earned him the unusual nickname. The 53-year-old also received a day’s worth of payment for accepting their generous offer.
The salon believes that it isn’t your spare change that will make a true difference in the lives of men and women like Flipper, but their ability to reclaim the self-esteem they’ve lost while in their sad situations.
It’s hard to argue with them when you see the smile on Flipper’s face once his transformation is complete. He’s practically beaming as she admits to feeling like a million bucks.
Take a look to see his classy new look from the amazing crew.
And be sure to SHARE his stunning makeover with your loved ones!
