Do Something for Nothing: Seeing Beneath the Surface of Homelessness, Through the Simple Act of a Haircut

Do Something for Nothing: Seeing Beneath the Surface of Homelessness, Through the Simple Act of a Haircut - Joshua Coombes

Do Something for Nothing: Seeing Beneath the Surface of Homelessness, Through the Simple Act of a Haircut


Through the simple act of a hair cut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world.

"Coombes is a hairdresser, and he believes that small acts of love can make a big impact."
--Morgan Freeman, in The Story of Us

"Joshua's stories show the power that empathy and compassion have to turn a common, everyday act into something transformative. They are the revelations of connection."
--Michael Sheen, actor and activist

"A simple, big-hearted, and world-shaking idea."
--Nick Cave, singer, songwriter

"The most vulnerable among us deserve our empathy, compassion, and advocacy. In leading by example, Joshua Coombes is both thought-provoking and inspiring, making us each ask what more we might do to better see and care for our communities. Joshua's work has always struck a chord with me, and I'm certain this book will strike a chord in the hearts of readers everywhere."
--Sophia Bush, actor and activist

"Joshua Coombes takes a simple concept--giving free haircuts to homeless people--and turns it into an spiritual parable. Armed with clippers, scissors, dry shampoo, and unpretentious decency, Coombes introduces the reader to those he met living on the streets of America, Australia, India, France, Holland, and his native UK, and in a warm and witty voice transforms his characters from invisible to unforgettable just as he did with the haircuts."
--Danny Goldberg, author of Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain

"Cutting someone's hair is a deeply intimate act, and when done for free, it conveys a profound affirmation of personal value. Do Something for Nothing reclaims the revolutionary power of small acts of human compassion across the boundaries that too often divide us."
--Mark Andersen, coauthor of We Are the Clash: Reagan, Thatcher, and the Last Stand of a Band That Mattered

"Joshua Coombes's work gives us what we so desperately need right now: hope, optimism, kind curiosity, and real human connection. This book will make you want to do something, just because you can."
--Emma Gannon, author of The Multi-Hyphen Life

When you're on the fringes of society, being noticed can mean everything.

In 2015, while working at a London hair salon, Joshua Coombes took to the streets with his scissors to build relationships with people sleeping rough in the capital. This inspired him to begin posting transformative images on social media to amplify their voices. These stories resonated and thousands of people got involved in their own way. #DoSomethingForNothing was born--a movement that encourages people to connect their skills and time to those who need it. Via the simple act of a haircut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world.

Featuring never-before-seen photographs and all-new writing, Do Something for Nothing explores themes of love, acceptance, shame, and perseverance, while inviting us to see ourselves in one another and dissolve the negative stigmas surrounding homelessness. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to organizations dedicated to assisting unsheltered people.

--Danny Goldberg, author of Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain

Cutting someone's hair is a deeply intimate act, and when done for free, it conveys a profound affirmation of personal value. Do Something for Nothing reclaims the revolutionary power of small acts of human compassion across the boundaries that too often divide us."
--Mark Andersen, coauthor of We Are the Clash: Reagan, Thatcher, and the Last Stand of a Band That Mattered

Joshua Coombes's work gives us what we so desperately need right now: hope, optimism, kind curiosity, and real human connection. This book will make you want to do something, just because you can.
--Emma Gannon, author of The Multi-Hyphen Life

When you're on the fringes of society, being noticed can mean everything.

In 2015, while working at a London hair salon, Joshua Coombes took to the streets with his scissors to build relationships with people sleeping rough in the capital. This inspired him to begin posting transformative images on social media to amplify their voices. These stories resonated and thousands of people got involved in their own way. #DoSomethingForNothing was born--a movement that encourages people to connect their skills and time to those who need it. Via the simple act of a haircut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world.

Featuring never-before-seen photographs and all-new writing, Do Something for Nothing explores themes of love, acceptance, shame, and perseverance, while inviting us to see ourselves in one another and dissolve the negative stigmas surrounding homelessness. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to organizations dedicated to assisting unsheltered people.

Joshua Coombes takes a simple concept--giving free haircuts to homeless people--and turns it into an spiritual parable. Armed with clippers, scissors, dry shampoo, and unpretentious decency, Coombes introduces the reader to those he met living on the streets of America, Australia, India, France, Holland, and his native UK, and in a warm and witty voice transforms his characters from invisible to unforgettable just as he did with the haircuts.
--Danny Goldberg, author of Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain

Cutting someone's hair is a deeply intimate act, and when done for free, it conveys a profound affirmation of personal value. Do Something for Nothing reclaims the revolutionary power of small acts of human compassion across the boundaries that too often divide us."
--Mark Andersen, coauthor of We Are the Clash: Reagan, Thatcher, and the Last Stand of a Band That Mattered

Joshua Coombes's work gives us what we so desperately need right now: hope, optimism, kind curiosity, and real human connection. This book will make you want to do something, just because you can.

In 2015, while working at a London hair salon, Joshua Coombes took to the streets with his scissors to build relationships with people sleeping rough in the capital. This inspired him to begin posting transformative images on social media to amplify their voices. These stories resonated and thousands of people got involved in their own way. #DoSomethingForNothing was born--a movement that encourages people to connect their skills and time to those who need it. Via the simple act of a haircut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world.

Featuring never-before-seen photographs and all-new writing, Do Something for Nothing explores themes of love, acceptance, shame, and perseverance, while inviting us to see ourselves in one another and dissolve the negative stigmas surrounding homelessness. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to organizations dedicated to assisting unsheltered people.

--Booklist

Such a simple gesture boosts someone's mood, what they think of themselves--and what society thinks of them. And while the haircuts are of value, it is Coombes' interest, caring and friendship that are of greater value.
--A Bookworm's World

Coombes is a hairdresser, and he believes that small acts of love can make a big impact.
--Morgan Freeman, in The Story of Us

Joshua's stories show the power that empathy and compassion have to turn a common, everyday act into something transformative. They are the revelations of connection.
--Michael Sheen, actor and activist

A simple, big-hearted, and world-shaking idea.
--Nick Cave, singer, songwriter

The most vulnerable among us deserve our empathy, compassion, and advocacy. In leading by example, Joshua Coombes is both thought-provoking and inspiring, making us each ask what more we might do to better see and care for our communities. Joshua's work has always struck a chord with me, and I'm certain this book will strike a chord in the hearts of readers everywhere.
--Sophia Bush, actor and activist

Joshua Coombes takes a simple concept--giving free haircuts to homeless people--and turns it into an spiritual parable. Armed with clippers, scissors, dry shampoo, and unpretentious decency, Coombes introduces the reader to those he met living on the streets of America, Australia, India, France, Holland, and his native UK, and in a warm and witty voice transforms his characters from invisible to unforgettable just as he did with the haircuts.
--Danny Goldberg, author of Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain

Cutting someone's hair is a deeply intimate act, and when done for free, it conveys a profound affirmation of personal value. Do Something for Nothing reclaims the revolutionary power of small acts of human compassion across the boundaries that too often divide us."
--Mark Andersen, coauthor of We Are the Clash: Reagan, Thatcher, and the Last Stand of a Band That Mattered

Joshua Coombes's work gives us what we so desperately need right now: hope, optimism, kind curiosity, and real human connection. This book will make you want to do something, just because you can.
--Emma Gannon, author of The Multi-Hyphen Life

When you're on the fringes of society, being noticed can mean everything.

In 2015, while working at a London hair salon, Joshua Coombes took to the streets with his scissors to build relationships with people sleeping rough in the capital. This inspired him to begin posting transformative images on social media to amplify their voices. These stories resonated and thousands of people got involved in their own way. #DoSomethingForNothing was born--a movement that encourages people to connect their skills and time to those who need it. Via the simple act of a haircut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world.

Featuring never-before-seen photographs and all-new writing, Do Something for Nothing explores themes of love, acceptance, shame, and perseverance, while inviting us to see ourselves in one another and dissolve the negative stigmas surrounding homelessness. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to organizations dedicated to assisting unsheltered people.

--Sophia Bush, actor and activist

Joshua Coombes takes a simple concept--giving free haircuts to homeless people--and turns it into an spiritual parable. Armed with clippers, scissors, dry shampoo, and unpretentious decency, Coombes introduces the reader to those he met living on the streets of America, Australia, India, France, Holland, and his native UK, and in a warm and witty voice transforms his characters from invisible to unforgettable just as he did with the haircuts.
--Danny Goldberg, author of Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain

Cutting someone's hair is a deeply intimate act, and when done for free, it conveys a profound affirmation of personal value. Do Something for Nothing reclaims the revolutionary power of small acts of human compassion across the boundaries that too often divide us."
--Mark Andersen, coauthor of We Are the Clash: Reagan, Thatcher, and the Last Stand of a Band That Mattered

Joshua Coombes's work gives us what we so desperately need right now: hope, optimism, kind curiosity, and real human connection. This book will make you want to do something, just because you can.
--Emma Gannon, author of The Multi-Hyphen Life

When you're on the fringes of society, being noticed can mean everything.

In 2015, while working at a London hair salon, Joshua Coombes took to the streets with his scissors to build relationships with people sleeping rough in the capital. This inspired him to begin posting transformative images on social media to amplify their voices. These stories resonated and thousands of people got involved in their own way. #DoSomethingForNothing was born--a movement that encourages people to connect their skills and time to those who need it. Via the simple act of a haircut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world.

Featuring never-before-seen photographs and all-new writing, Do Something for Nothing explores themes of love, acceptance, shame, and perseverance, while inviting us to see ourselves in one another and dissolve the negative stigmas surrounding homelessness. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to organizations dedicated to assisting unsheltered people.

When you're on the fringes of society, being noticed can mean everything.

In 2015, while working at a London hair salon, Joshua Coombes took to the streets with his scissors to build relationships with people sleeping rough in the capital. This inspired him to begin posting transformative images on social media to amplify their voices. These stories resonated and thousands of people got involved in their own way. #DoSomethingForNothing was born--a movement that encourages people to connect their skills and time to those who need it. Via the simple act of a haircut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world.

Featuring never-before-seen photographs and all-new writing, Do Something for Nothing explores themes of love, acceptance, shame, and perseverance, while inviting us to see ourselves in one another and dissolve the negative stigmas surrounding homelessness. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to organizations dedicated to assisting unsheltered people.

In this uplifting book, Coombes deftly illustrates how reaching out and listening can break down barriers in an often indifferent world.
--Booklist

Such a simple gesture boosts someone's mood, what they think of themselves--and what society thinks of them. And while the haircuts are of value, it is Coombes' interest, caring and friendship that are of greater value.
--A Bookworm's World

Coombes is a hairdresser, and he believes that small acts of love can make a big impact.
--Morgan Freeman, in The Story of Us

Joshua's stories show the power that empathy and compassion have to turn a common, everyday act into something transformative. They are the revelations of connection.
--Michael Sheen, actor and activist

A simple, big-hearted, and world-shaking idea.
--Nick Cave, singer, songwriter

The most vulnerable among us deserve our empathy, compassion, and advocacy. In leading by example, Joshua Coombes is both thought-provoking and inspiring, making us each ask what more we might do to better see and care for our communities. Joshua's work has always struck a chord with me, and I'm certain this book will strike a chord in the hearts of readers everywhere.
--Sophia Bush, actor and activist

Joshua Coombes takes a simple concept--giving free haircuts to homeless people--and turns it into an spiritual parable. Armed with clippers, scissors, dry shampoo, and unpretentious decency, Coombes introduces the reader to those he met living on the streets of America, Australia, India, France, Holland, and his native UK, and in a warm and witty voice transforms his characters from invisible to unforgettable just as he did with the haircuts.
--Danny Goldberg, author of Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain

Cutting someone's hair is a deeply intimate act, and when done for free, it conveys a profound affirmation of personal value. Do Something for Nothing reclaims the revolutionary power of small acts of human compassion across the boundaries that too often divide us."

Joshua Coombes takes a simple concept--giving free haircuts to homeless people--and turns it into an spiritual parable. Armed with clippers, scissors, dry shampoo, and unpretentious decency, Coombes introduces the reader to those he met living on the streets of America, Australia, India, France, Holland, and his native UK, and in a warm and witty voice transforms his characters from invisible to unforgettable just as he did with the haircuts.
--Danny Goldberg, author of Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain

Cutting someone's hair is a deeply intimate act, and when done for free, it conveys a profound affirmation of personal value. Do Something for Nothing reclaims the revolutionary power of small acts of human compassion across the boundaries that too often divide us."
--Mark Andersen, coauthor of We Are the Clash: Reagan, Thatcher, and the Last Stand of a Band That Mattered

Joshua Coombes's work gives us what we so desperately need right now: hope, optimism, kind curiosity, and real human connection. This book will make you want to do something, just because you can.

Cutting someone's hair is a deeply intimate act, and when done for free, it conveys a profound affirmation of personal value. Do Something for Nothing reclaims the revolutionary power of small acts of human compassion across the boundaries that too often divide us."
--Mark Andersen, coauthor of We Are the Clash: Reagan, Thatcher, and the Last Stand of a Band That Mattered

Joshua Coombes's work gives us what we so desperately need right now: hope, optimism, kind curiosity, and real human connection. This book will make you want to do something, just because you can.

In 2015, while working at a London hair salon, Joshua Coombes took to the streets with his scissors to build relationships with people sleeping rough in the capital. This inspired him to begin posting transformative images on social media to amplify their voices. These stories resonated and thousands of people got involved in their own way. #DoSomethingForNothing was born--a movement that encourages people to connect their skills and time to those who need it. Via the simple act of a haircut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world.

Featuring never-before-seen photographs and all-new writing, Do Something for Nothing explores themes of love, acceptance, shame, and perseverance, while inviting us to see ourselves in one another and dissolve the negative stigmas surrounding homelessness. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to organizations dedicated to assisting unsheltered people.

In 2015, while working at a London hair salon, Joshua Coombes took to the streets with his scissors to build relationships with people sleeping rough in the capital. This inspired him to begin posting transformative images on social media to amplify their voices. These stories resonated and thousands of people got involved in their own way. #DoSomethingForNothing was born--a movement that encourages people to connect their skills and time to those who need it. Via the simple act of a haircut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world.

Featuring never-before-seen photographs and all-new writing, Do Something for Nothing explores themes of love, acceptance, shame, and perseverance, while inviting us to see ourselves in one another and dissolve the negative stigmas surrounding homelessness. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to organizations dedicated to assisting unsheltered people.

Through the simple act of a haircut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world.

In this uplifting book, Coombes deftly illustrates how reaching out and listening can break down barriers in an often indifferent world.
--Booklist

Such a simple gesture boosts someone's mood, what they think of themselves--and what society thinks of them. And while the haircuts are of value, it is Coombes' interest, caring and friendship that are of greater value.
--A Bookworm's World

Coombes is a hairdresser, and he believes that small acts of love can make a big impact.
--Morgan Freeman, in The Story of Us

Joshua's stories show the power that empathy and compassion have to turn a common, everyday act into something transformative. They are the revelations of connection.
--Michael Sheen, actor and activist

A simple, big-hearted, and world-shaking idea.
--Nick Cave, singer, songwriter

The most vulnerable among us deserve our empathy, compassion, and advocacy. In leading by example, Joshua Coombes is both thought-provoking and inspiring, making us each ask what more we might do to better see and care for our communities. Joshua's work has always struck a chord with me, and I'm certain this book will strike a chord in the hearts of readers everywhere.
--Sophia Bush, actor and activist

Joshua Coombes takes a simple concept--giving free haircuts to homeless people--and turns it into an spiritual parable. Armed with clippers, scissors, dry shampoo, and unpretentious decency, Coombes introduces the reader to those he met living on the streets of America, Australia, India, France, Holland, and his native UK, and in a warm and witty voice transforms his characters from invisible to unforgettable just as he did with the haircuts.
--Danny Goldberg, author of Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain

Cutting someone's hair is a deeply intimate act, and when done for free, it conveys a profound affirmation of personal value. Do Something for Nothing reclaims the revolutionary power of small acts of human compassion across the boundaries that too often divide us."
--Mark Andersen, coauthor of We Are the Clash: Reagan, Thatcher, and the Last Stand of a Band That Mattered

Joshua Coombes's work gives us what we so desperately need right now: hope, optimism, kind curiosity, and real human connection. This book will make you want to do something, just because you can.

Such a simple gesture boosts someone's mood, what they think of themselves--and what society thinks of them. And while the haircuts are of value, it is Coombes' interest, caring and friendship that are of greater value.
--A Bookworm's World

Coombes is a hairdresser, and he believes that small acts of love can make a big impact.
--Morgan Freeman, in The Story of Us

Joshua's stories show the power that empathy and compassion have to turn a common, everyday act into something transformative. They are the revelations of connection.
--Michael Sheen, actor and activist

A simple, big-hearted, and world-shaking idea.
--Nick Cave, singer, songwriter

The most vulnerable among us deserve our empathy, compassion, and advocacy. In leading by example, Joshua Coombes is both thought-provoking and inspiring, making us each ask what more we might do to better see and care for our communities. Joshua's work has always struck a chord with me, and I'm certain this book will strike a chord in the hearts of readers everywhere.
--Sophia Bush, actor and activist

Joshua Coombes takes a simple concept--giving free haircuts to homeless people--and turns it into an spiritual parable. Armed with clippers, scissors, dry shampoo, and unpretentious decency, Coombes introduces the reader to those he met living on the streets of America, Australia, India, France, Holland, and his native UK, and in a warm and witty voice transforms his characters from invisible to unforgettable just as he did with the haircuts.
--Danny Goldberg, author of Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain

Cutting someone's hair is a deeply intimate act, and when done for free, it conveys a profound affirmation of personal value. Do Something for Nothing reclaims the revolutionary power of small acts of human compassion across the boundaries that too often divide us."
--Mark Andersen, coauthor of We Are the Clash: Reagan, Thatcher, and the Last Stand of a Band That Mattered

Joshua Coombes's work gives us what we so desperately need right now: hope, optimism, kind curiosity, and real human connection. This book will make you want to do something, just because you can.
--Emma Gannon, author of The Multi-Hyphen Life

When you're on the fringes of society, being noticed can mean everything.

In 2015, while working at a London hair salon, Joshua Coombes took to the streets with his scissors to build relationships with people sleeping rough in the capital. This inspired him to begin posting transformative images on social media to amplify their voices. These stories resonated and thousands of people got involved in their own way. #DoSomethingForNothing was born--a movement that encourages people to connect their skills and time to those who need it. Via the simple act of a haircut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world.

Featuring never-before-seen photographs and all-new writing, Do Something for Nothing explores themes of love, acceptance, shame, and perseverance, while inviting us to see ourselves in one another and dissolve the negative stigmas surrounding homelessness. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to organizations dedicated to assisting unsheltered people.

Armed with clippers, scissors, dry shampoo, and unpretentious decency, Coombes introduces the reader to those he met living on the streets of America, Australia, India, France, Holland, and his native UK, and in a warm and witty voice transforms his characters from invisible to unforgettable just as he did with the haircuts.
--Danny Goldberg, author of Serving the Servant: Remembering Kurt Cobain

Cutting someone's hair is a deeply intimate act, and when done for free, it conveys a profound affirmation of personal value. Do Something for Nothing reclaims the revolutionary power of small acts of human compassion across the boundaries that too often divide us."
--Mark Andersen, coauthor of We Are the Clash: Reagan, Thatcher, and the Last Stand of a Band That Mattered

Joshua Coombes's work gives us what we so desperately need right now: hope, optimism, kind curiosity, and real human connection. This book will make you want to do something, just because you can.
--Emma Gannon, author of The Multi-Hyphen Life

When you're on the fringes of society, being noticed can mean everything.

In 2015, while working at a London hair salon, Joshua Coombes took to the streets with his scissors to build relationships with people sleeping rough in the capital. This inspired him to begin posting transformative images on social media to amplify their voices. These stories resonated and thousands of people got involved in their own way. #DoSomethingForNothing was born--a movement that encourages people to connect their skills and time to those who need it. Via the simple act of a haircut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world.

Featuring never-before-seen photographs and all-new writing, Do Something for Nothing explores themes of love, acceptance, shame, and perseverance, while inviting us to see ourselves in one another and dissolve the negative stigmas surrounding homelessness. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to organizations dedicated to assisting unsheltered people.

In this uplifting book, Coombes deftly illustrates how reaching out and listening can break down barriers in an often indifferent world.
--Booklist

Such a simple gesture boosts someone's mood, what they think of themselves--and what society thinks of them. And while the haircuts are of value, it is Coombes' interest, caring and friendship that are of greater value.
--A Bookworm's World

Coombes is a hairdresser, and he believes that small acts of love can make a big impact.
--Morgan Freeman, in The Story of Us

Joshua's stories show the power that empathy and compassion have to turn a common, everyday act into something transformative. They are the revelations of connection.
--Michael Sheen, actor and activist

A simple, big-hearted, and world-shaking idea.
--Nick Cave, singer, songwriter

The most vulnerable among us deserve our empathy, compassion, and advocacy. In leading by example, Joshua Coombes is both thought-provoking and inspiring, making us each ask what more we might do to better see and care for our communities. Joshua's work has always struck a chord with me, and I'm certain this book will strike a chord in the hearts of readers everywhere.
