Local barber spreading kindness with free haircuts for homeless

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- A Philadelphia barber is showing everyone the simple, incredible power of kindness.

29-year-old Brennon Jones from Chester sets up on street corners in the city and gives free haircuts to homeless people who can't afford them.

He also throws in a light lunch and some toiletries like toothpaste, deodorant and socks.

"But most importantly I provide a sense of self esteem and a sense of self respect. Do I plan to continue this? Absolutely! Every state, other countries, giving back," he said.

Jones even got a national shout out Tuesday morning on the Rachael Ray show.

He also got an $8,000 donation to help him keep on doing his good, selfless work right here in the city of brotherly love.

Jones has started an organization called Haircuts 4 the Homeless and says, "It's not about the haircut. It's about spreading love."
