For the past few years, Brennon Jones has been an inspiration to humanity. Besides being one cool Philadelphia barber, he’s also got a big heart. There is literally no hair that Jones won’t cut, and that includes a homeless person’s hair. For years now, he’s been giving haircut to the homeless in his neighborhood. But this awesome barber’s generosity didn’t end with a few snips from his scissors. He’s been feeding the homeless, providing them with clothing and more. Now his generosity has finally rubbed off on another barber, who proved that when you do good things, the universe gives back.In the streets of Philadelphia, people who once felt abandoned have seen a silver lining thanks to Brennon Jones, who has provided them with a haircut and anything else they might need free of charge.
Jones has even started a Facebook page called Haircut4Homeless. He hopes his page will inspire others to spread the love and not lose sight of the good things in our lives.
He estimates that the number of haircuts he’s provided are at least a thousand. But from his perspective, the more haircuts, the better he feels. Ultimately, this makes him feel good about himself while helping others.
That’s when Sean Johnson stepped in. He had heard of Brennon’s good deeds and he wanted to get involved too. But did he go out and give haircuts to the homeless too? No.
The sidewalk, streets, and back alley had become his barber shop. But with the fall already here and winter not too far behind, Sean Johnson wanted to do something that would change the way Brennon cut hair.
Now imagine how shocked Brennon was when Johnson gave him a fully-renovated barber shop where Brennon would be able to cut hair away from the harshness of the coming winter.
Johnson had walked up to Brennon and asked him to check out a building that he owned. Then he asked Brennon if he liked the place, and when he said yes, Johnson tossed him the key and told him the building was his.
Johnson himself went from being incarcerated to owning the Taper’s Barbershop. But this was after he went to barber school and his mom paid for his license. To honor his mom, he wanted to give back to the community by helping do-gooders like Brennon.
He’d like to see Brennon succeed and do great things with the new shop, which is set to open sometime in November, which will provide free haircuts to the homeless on set days throughout the week.
Brennon Jones might have been like a guardian angel to the homeless, but Sean Johnson ended up being an angel as well. With his amazing gift, Brennon can now continue to help those who need help the most.
