Very inspiring and uplifting. This is so awesome and what we as Christians are called to do. To help out those suffering and in need.
Jim Wolf, a vet struggling with poverty and alcoholism, is tunned when he sees his reflection
The video was shot by Michigan filmmaker Rob Bliss, a 25-year-old known locally for viral videos, to help homeless veterans. He told The Blaze that he wanted to create a time-lapse video of a homeless person to show how “they can look like they’re meant for the cover of GQ — they have that potential too.”
Bliss teamed up with Dégagé Ministries, a Christian ministry in Grand Rapids, Mich., providing services to struggling veterans. There he met Jim Wolf, a vet struggling with poverty and alcoholism.
A local stylist and a production team volunteered to help with Wolf’s makeover.
The video begins with a shot of Wolf with unkempt hair and ungroomed beard. For three hours he sits silently in a salon chair as stylist Anna Walt, snips, buzzes and dyes his hair.
His clothing is then changed to a crisp, white button-down. The look is completed with a tie and a navy-blue suit.
Wolf, who has not seen himself through the transformation process, is stunned when he finally sees his reflection.
“We all have an image of ourselves,” Marge Palmerlee, executive director of Degage, told The Blaze. “When he saw the difference, he just … felt very enlightened and uplifted. I could just tell the difference in Jim.”
Wolf is now attending Alcoholics Anonymous and plans to move into his own apartment, according to The Blaze.
