Many forgot about Flint, but he did not.

Remember when the WORLD talked about Flint, MI.? Remember when EVERYONE wanted to help?

Pa. Man Who Gives Free Haircuts to the Homeless Receives Free Barbershop From Stranger

Winter is approaching and, with it, all the difficult weather conditions that often apply. Because of that, one kindhearted Philadelphia man thought that he would have to temporarily give up his mission of giving free haircuts to the homeless—that is, until one equally kindhearted stranger stepped in and gave him a relatively new barbershop.
