    Meet Joshua Coombes!

    Does his name ring a bell? As if you want to comb and groom your hair?

    Well, it might be all coincidence that his surname sounds like a grooming kit. But sure he was in the grooming career. Along with friends, Matt Spracklen and Dave Burt they have a mission to pursue everytime they hit the streets of London. Josh was a hairdresser with an extraordinary passion for his grooming career. He has this 360 degrees salon where anybody from anywhere can just walk in, be cozy as you wait for your turn to be served by him for a haircut. Josh was 29 years old and his career in hairdressing has brought him so much love from his clients many of whom he just met on the streets of London. Josh and his friends has this advocacy to have a Selfie with people in the streets particularly the homeless on the streets of London. Their mission was to inspire and encourage people to do an act of kindness. They posed their Selfies with their grooming clients under the hashtag #DoSomethingforNothing on Instagram.

    When in London and you suddenly realize you need a haircut? Wait awhile, relax and be cozy, your hairdresser might just be around to groom you on the streets of London.

    Sorry but I didn't get the drift of that hairdresser. I understand that they have an advocacy to help the homeless. But taking a selfie, huh, that's far fetched to me. There are other more concrete actions they can do to help the homeless.

    Sometimes there are people doing civic works for their own advantage. This is not to smear that hairdresser but it can be possible that they are making a hype for the cause of the homeless but in effect their business is getting the benefit. Take for example this post, you have advertised the hairdresser, right?

    No offense meant, just my opinion on the issue.

    Its a great idea - we have many volunteers that help the homeless in many ways, this is another way
    When I was down and depressed some time back, its then you just don't care about yerself anymore .
    For someone to come along and instil that pride in you once more, is a very good thing :)

    I see your point Corie. I'm sure this was most a publicity gimmick to get viral than really doing a 'Samaritan work'. But whether they are doing this just to get published and go viral online, I still find the inspiration and I'm sure a lot of people does too. I would like to ripple the goodness of the feeling to those who will also be inspired by this inspiration that led me to creatively write something about it. For me, I was inspired and felt good inside and thank Almighty God that others might benefit from this as well.

    Be happy! :) God is always great!
