Reblogging: Filipino Hairstylist Makes Cutting-Edge Difference in New York City

By Eric - 4:56 AM

Another inspirational story that I would like to share here. As much as I am emotionally moved, I am also proud to tell that it's a Filipino who made a difference way up of the other side of this world. This guy is truly amazing and as a missionary myself, wish I could make something different in the world just like what he did or something different, it could be in teaching which I am into now.
What made me so proud of this guy is, he humbly started the first move not to attract crowds attention but to inspire everyone to do something good for the less fortunate.

I just simply love what he says, and hoping I could live by it, this is what he says: The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow... do good anyway.

MANILA, Philippines – He does the hairstyles of wealthy clients in an upscale salon in New York City, but on Sundays, his only day off, he does it for the homeless.Mark Bustos, a 30-year-old Filipino-American hairstylist of Three Squares Studio, is making the rounds in social media after a story made by The Huffington Post on his Instagram posts about giving a cutting-edge look to the needy.Bustos has been offering sophisticated haircuts for the homeless since May 2012 when he travelled to his family in the Philippines to visit relatives. While abroad, he rented a barber’s chair to offer his services to impoverished children.  So far, he has also given free haircuts to the less fortunate in Jamaica, Costa Rica and Los Angeles.“The feeling was so rewarding, I decided to bring the positive energy back to NYC,” he told Huffington Post.Most of his free haircut services are done on the streets based on his Instagram posts. It comes with hashtag #BeAwesometoSomebody.Bustos explained that he does his services in open spaces not for people to see him, but for others to be inspired to do a good deed to the needy.“Even a simple smile can go a long way,” he said.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow... do good anyway.

My parents will be so proud of me when they find out why I've been missing Sunday dinners. #BeAwesomeToSomebody#NYC
