Off-topic, but here's to a great Wednesday, Philadelphia. "Last month, Sean Johnson, 44, ran into Brennon Jones again. He asked Jones what he was going to do when winter rolled in. Jones, who has given haircuts to more than 1,000 people who are homeless, hadn’t thought that far ahead. Johnson invited Jones to an unused but fully furnished barbershop he owns, doors from his own shop on the 5900 block of Old York Road. Once inside, Johnson tossed Jones the keys. 'He said, ‘If you love it, it’s yours,’ and then he walked out,” Jones recalled. “I was confused. I’ve been given a lot of things as a result of this mission, but nothing to this capacity. For somebody to give you a building, for him to say, ‘This is yours, no strings attached,’ it kind of blew my mind.'” Taper's Barbershop

    What Brennon Jones was doing with a razor on a busy Center City sidewalk this April stopped a fellow barber cold. Jones, 29, was giving free haircuts to men who are homeless. He had a small chair and chalkboard sign that read "Haircuts 4 Homeless."

Brennon Jones gave free haircuts to homeless ...

Brennon Jones gave free haircuts to homeless people. Then, he was given his own shop. "At 3 p.m. Sunday, Phenomenon Perfection will open with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the shop at 5925 Old York Road," where Brennon Jones will still provide haircuts and meals for homeless persons. One to feel good about, via PhillyVoice

    WATCH: 'Haircuts 4 Homeless' barbershop will open doors to public this weekend
    How quickly lives can change. It's been fewer than 10 months since PhillyVoice first brought you the story of Brennon Jones' mission to cut hair for the homeless in Philadelphia and beyond. One day in early January 2016, he set up temporary shop at 15th and Walnut streets in Center City.
