Foot Soldier Barbering

Your donations will benefit free haircuts for the homeless population around Newark Penn Station.

Donations will be used towards equipment, transportation, application for non-profit status, endowment, supplies and future project ideas!

Your support means that you've gained interest and passion for a group of people that has been neglected by society. The mission that I am trying to approach with this project is a mission of unison. I have been trying to figure out a way to get others involved in #footsoldierbarbering and I feel like this campaign is a great way. It alllows me to expand the movement and ultimately touch more lives. I am so grateful for the help and support you are willing to give for a movement that I hope to continue for a long time. 

Here's a short relfection with a street client:

"After looking at his haircut in the mirror (obviously not the finished product in this picture), I asked Mark what he was going to do for the rest of the day. Mark told me that he was going to take the light rail to go see his daughter. I asked him how long it's been since he's seen her. He said, "almost a year." #thepowerofahaircut #justgive #nwkbound"
