Who knew that a haircut could change your life?
Jim Wolf is a United States Army Veteran. He has struggled with poverty, homelessness and addiction. A group called Rob Bliss Creative did a simple thing for Jim - they treated him to a haircut, minimal styling, and a new suit, filming his transformation as it happened. When Jim finally sees his new look, he almost can't believe it. Not only did his physical appearance improve, but his self-esteem and sense of self-worth seems to return.
"Since filming, Jim has taken control of his life," the video reveals. "He is now scheduled to have his own housing and is attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings for the first time ever."
Jim's new look will no doubt change the way people view and treat him, but how we see ourselves is even more important, and Jim didn't just get a new haircut and a suit - he got confidence and self-respect.
If you'd like to help other veterans get back on their feet, you can donate to Degage Ministries, a non-profit organization that helps homeless and disadvantaged individuals.
