@the_fuller_cut Barbershop are #UPP

The Fuller Cut in Ypsilanti, #Michigan, is the latest barbershop to make waves for its educational discount program – $2 off a haircut for any child who reads to him.

Ryan Griffin, a barber at the shop, read about a few other barbershops who were doing similar programs back in August 2015. So, Griffin, shop owner Alex Fuller and Fuller’s wife got started collecting books.

The Fuller Cut believes in empowering children – and since the barbershop is in a predominantly black neighborhood, they mostly stock books that positively portray African American characters. -mashable.com
