‘Tis the season to think about giving back, and you don’t have to look too far to find some great examples and inspiration, even right on the street.
Mark Bustos is an A-list celebrity hairstylist in New York, who spends his Sundays out on the street giving free haircuts to homeless men. Carrying his own supplies and setting up shop anywhere from park benches to overturned grocery carts, he gives up to ten haircuts per day to those in need. And the haircuts often mean so much more than a haircut—it offers an individual care and self-worth. Mark said part of the inspiration is knowing how great a haircut feels, how it can change your outlook, and wanting to share that with everyone. And of course, here at SoCozy, we can certainly understand.
Last week as we wrapped gifs for homeless women and children at WIN in NYC (and thank you again for your support during our Turkey Hand campaign), we asked the question of each other and now we’ll ask it of you:
What’s your favorite way to give back?
Share your ideas with us (and others) on Facebook, and may we all find ways this season and in the coming year to give back.
