Everyone deserves to smile and feel good about themselves, don’t they?
One man named Josh Coombes definitely thinks so. In fact, he goes out of his way to make it happen for those who need it the most.
“#DoSomethingForNothing was born in 2015,” Josh explains in the video below, posted on September 2o, 2017. “This was when I started going out on the street with my scissors to cut hair for people who need it.”
He and a veterinarian named Jade Statt set out on their journey to change the lives of the homeless as well as struggling animals.
As he shaves down one homeless man’s hair, he hears something inspiring. The man tells Josh that people should offer an act of kindness, not money.
“Just stop and see how someone is doing,” Josh says. “Try and build some community, some friendship. I think that’s really, really important, isn’t it?” As he cuts each person’s hair, he connects with them and listens to what they have to say, which is something that doesn’t happen too often.
“I’m the happiest I’ve been, doing this. And it’s OK to recognize that,” Josh proudly declares.
