One day, A traveling barber from Philadelphia named Brennon Jones passed a homeless man sitting in his regular spot on Center City corner. After watching passersby pretty much ignore the man for a few minutes, he approached with a question. “Do you want a haircut?”

The homeless man, Braden Day, had lost everything when he became addicted to drugs. Once owning a thriving construction business, drugs took over and he found himself begging for change on a city sidewalk. 

Jones offering Day a haircut opened both of their eyes. Day couldn’t believe someone would be so nice to him and Jones had an epiphany. With that, Jones – a 29-year-old who moved to West Philadelphia from Chester last year – had his first Philly client for the “Haircuts 4 the Homeless” mission that he said came from “my heart.”

Sporting a “Serving God, Serving Others” shirt, he hooked clippers up to a car battery that he purchased after a GoFundMe push met its $1,000 goal within a week, broke out his scissors, and got to cutting hair.

Jones surpassed his goal on his GoFundMe page, but it still remains active, because every little bit helps.
