Remember Brennon Jones, the 29-year-old man from West Philadelphia who gives out haircuts to the homeless?
He's getting some serious national attention.
Jones, who is a barber by trade, took to the streets of Philadelphia after an overwhelming response to his #Haircuts4TheHomeless GoFundMe page, where he's raised enough money to give a trim and provide some lunches and toiletries to those in need.
His efforts have landed him an appearance on "The Rachael Ray Show" that airs Tuesday at 10 a.m. on 6 ABC, a publicist for the show said.
The famous TV cook and Jones, originally form Chester, Delaware County, are set to talk about his mission and the people he had helped. The spokesperson said there's a bit of a monetary surprise for Jones, too, that will be revealed on the daytime talk show.
“I just wanted to provide something different than some change or a couple dollars," Jones told PhillyVoice in January. "I’m blessed with a talent, so why not share it and make someone’s day? I just wanted to give back.”
