Celebrity hairstylist helps the homeless with free haircuts for #WorldKindnessDay

Celebrity hairstylist Mark Bustos has given 300 free haircuts to homeless people around the globe and has captured many of his cuts on Instagram.

His philanthropy was highlighted on Instagram’s blog for #WorldKindnessDay on November 13 to raise awareness about his own kindness campaign #BeAwesomeToSomebody, which sets out to inspire others to offer compassion to those in need.

 

 

It takes a lot to stop a New Yorker en route to work — but watching celebrity hairstylist Mark Bustos (@markbustos) giving free cuts to the homeless might be worth the delay. “I started doing it on my days off, mostly to make people on their morning commute stop and look,” says the 31-year-old. “It only takes a split second to strike inspiration in someone’s head.” To date, Mark has given over 300 charity haircuts to homeless citizens around the world. Through his kindness campaign, #BeAwesomeToSomebody, he hopes to challenge others to pause for moments of compassion in their everyday lives. “I want people to realize that we’re all human, and that all of our lives are worth the same,” says Mark. “To be kind doesn’t take anything from us.” November 13 is World Kindness Day.

Expensive materialistic possessions in the west "says" your rich, while in Southeast Asia, the color of your skin determines it. Historically, in Southeast Asia, having dark skin is associated with people who work in the fields, aka the Poor... The upper class stay indoors and in the shade. Southeast Asian countries look down on people with dark skin not because of racism but because they don't want to be perceived as poor. In SE Asia, everyone strives to be white- every skin product has whitening in it and everyone stays out of the sun, unless you don't have a choice. These Farmers don't have big heavy machinery to do their job for them. They are some of the toughest and hardest working people I've ever met. I have so much respect and look UP to these hard working individuals. 5:30am- We caught them right before they started their long day on the farm. Can you imagine if the world didn't have farmers? Would you still think food comes from a grocery story? In honor of World Kindness day, I CHALLENGE you all to #BeAwesomeToSomebody ..... "If we all do one random act of kindness daily, we might just set the world in the right direction." -Martin Greenfield
