News: #BeAwesomeToSomebody

I heard some news this week that is so inspiring I would be crazy not to share it. It is all about the good deeds of Mr Mark Bustos.


Mark Bustos is a stylist in New York that spends his Sundays offering haircuts to the homeless. Bustos, who works at Three Squares Studio, started these awesome acts of kindness in May 2012. It all began during a family visit to the Philippines, when the 30-year-old rented a chair from a local barbershop to give hair cuts to impoverished children in need of a good trim. He told the Huffington Post, “The feeling was so rewarding, I decided to bring the positive energy back to New York City.”

Bustos provides free haircuts to as many as six homeless people every Sunday and does this in "open, well-travelled spaces like street corners and sidewalks", so that people can be inspired by his actions and (hopefully) do something similar for others in need.
