Can We Please Keep This 89 Year Old Barber In Business?

I think you should give this nice British barber named Aaron your life’s savings, if you’re okay with that. It’s not that I like him more than you, it’s just that he has a better hat.

Oh, technically, I know your hat may be more “attractive” but he is 89, and therefore his is better. Obviously. Also, rioters looted his barbershop and took everything including his kettle.

Aaron notes, “I will probably have to close because I haven’t got insurance and I can’t afford the repairs.” He has been working in the area for 41 years. His wife died last year, and the riots have destroyed his faith in the community. There’s a video of his talking about it here.

I know there are a lot of stories like this out there, and I know that donating in the wake of these sort of world issues always seems difficult (because Paypal is complicated!) but he is a nice old man with a lovely hat. So go here and help him get a new kettle.
