I wanted to share this incredible transformation in honor of Veteran’s Day.
U.S. Army veteran Jim Wolf has struggled with poverty, homelessness, and alcoholism for many years, in September he decided to undergo a Physical transformation for Degage ministries, a charity that aims to help veterans who have fallen on hard times. The result will leave you speechless!
Jim is almost unrecognizable at the end after receiving a haircut, beard trim, and new clothes. He is now scheduled to have his own housing and is attending alcoholics anonymous meetings for the first time ever.
“The makeover, which included a haircut, beard trim, dye job and a designer suit, was meant to inspire Wolf, from the outside in.” – ABC News
Our video’s message: We are in no way saying that this is the finish line for Jim. This is just the first corner turned. We’d be crazy to think a makeover video would undo the internal damage of decades of poverty and alcoholism. Progress is rarely a straight line forward, especially when it comes to addiction. But it could be the start of something, and we’re working hard to help walk him down this new path. For everyone else, we hope to give a hesitation to those that we tune out, a reminder of the potential that even our most down and out citizens will always carry with them. (You Tube)
