If there’s one thing we have tried to show here at Be Robin Hood, it’s that heroes can be found in the last place you’d ever expect them to be. This story brings us to a Canadian barbershop that brings customers from hours away to lineup for a cut. Why? Because there’s no other barber like Franz Jakob.
Franz takes kids with special needs - from the terminally ill to those with autism. A regular customer is 6 year old Wyatt who has been coming to the shop since it opened. The young boy will wander around the store, that is covered wall to wall with vintage items, and even occasionally lay down on the ground - followed immediately by Franz Jakob.
“Each time I’m doing it [cutting hair] there are no tears, no screams. We enjoy it together. I think the atmosphere of the barbershop helps a lot. I really take my time doing it.” Says Jakob.
Being Robin Hood isn’t about dramatically changing your life to help those who need it most. It’s about making choices to change a life as much as it can, and this story proves that no matter where you live, what you do, or who you are…you can make a difference.
