Βρετανός κουρέας «μεταμορφώνει» αστέγους και η αλλαγή είναι εκπληκτική

Ένας κομμωτής στο Λονδίνο μεταμορφώνει δεκάδες αστέγους κουρεύοντας τους δωρεάν και δημοσιεύοντας τις φωτογραφίες τους στο προσωπικό του λογαριασμό στο Instagram, δείχνοντας πως μια απλή ανιδιοτελής κίνηση μπορεί να φέρει το χαμόγελο στους ανθρώπους, έστω και για λίγο.

Οι φωτογραφίες έγιναν αμέσως viral και όχι άδικα! Η αλλαγή είναι πραγματικά μεγάλη και τα άτομα είναι σχεδόν αγνώριστα.

Ο Τσόσουα Κουμπς, όπως ονομάζεται ο 31χρονος κομμωτής, μιλάει με τους ”πελάτες” του, ακούει τα προβλήματα τους και τις προσωπικές τους ιστορίες.

I’m happy to be back in the U.S. I’ve spent time on the streets in so many different cities here and made connections with people that have stayed in my heart. People like Humberto… We met in an underpass of Highway 101 near Silver Lake, Los Angeles. He was sleeping there in a tent encampment, along with many other people. A familiar sight for anyone living in a major across this beautiful country. I could’ve counted all of things that are different between us…but instead, I concentrated on what we had in common instead. We spent the next two days together. I lost contact with Humberto last year. The number he gave me stopped working. Maybe we’ll cross paths again one day. I hope so. Here’s what I wrote about Humberto after we left one another: This is Humberto, 49 years old. Born in Cuba, growing up in Florida before moving to California as a younger man. He has a wife and two kids, currently living out of their car in San José. Humberto came to LA a few months ago to try and make some money here and help them get out of their situation, wiring cash whenever he gets the chance. We met each other in a tunnel that runs beneath Highway 101. This place is full of tents and shopping carts with people's belongings inside. It’s where Humberto sleeps… I asked him where he was heading and we ended up spending the day together – . "I need to go and get my watch fixed so I can try and sell it. I know it's worth some money once I do that. I'm heading to a place in Subset blvd, you can join me if you want?" . It was a really hot day out but so we grabbed some water from a store and started walking for nearly an hour to get there. It gave us a good chance to get to know each other. He told me some of his story and I told him mine. Humberto used to work here in LA back in the nineties. . "In another life, I used to work on movie sets, helping with props, that kind of thing. I met some great people. My wife and I had met by this point, we were settled for a time and had children. When I got laid off my job, I started working with a friend in his garage but then his business closed. Things started to look worse# and worse with money…”

Μόλις ολοκληρώσει το κούρεμά τους ανεβάζει τις φωτογραφίες τους στο Instagram με το hashtag #Do SomethingForNothing’. Με άλλα λόγια, κάνε κάτι χωρίς να περιμένεις αντάλλαγμα.

It’s amazing to think of how far #DoSomethingForNothing has grown in four years. A small idea has spread across the globe, with thousands of people using these four words to join in with love and compassion. That means the world to me and to every person that’s been pushed aside and spat out by society. I’ve learnt more about myself through every person I’ve met along the way. Thank you for being here with me. As always, your support is everything. This is Paul, I met him three years ago. I found Paul sat down on The Strand, one of the busiest streets in Central London. I wandered how many people he must see walking by each day. As soon as I approached him he gave me a big smile and I knew I'd enjoy getting to know this man. Paul was born in Yorkshire. After working as a mechanic for the majority of his life in the north of England, he moved up to Scotland to enjoy the next chapter. Unfortunately things didn't work out quite as easily as he'd thought. Paul struggled finding work and when his savings ran out he could no longer pay his rent. After a while Paul told me he got a cheap bus down to London because he needed new surroundings and thought there would be more support in the capital. He's been on the street for three years here and is still hoping for a break soon… Meeting Paul was an experience I’m not going to forget. We sat down and spoke for another hour after his haircut and shared stories. I couldn't have felt happier in his company. He’d become more talkative and confident. That felt good. I thanked him for spending his time with me. #DoSomethingForNothing
