Story of the Week: FlipDaBarber is On the Road to Recovery…!

Written by

Do you remember FlipDaBarber who was critically injured in NYC ? Two months later, Flip is getting better (with a little help from his friends…!)

Hey Guys…! Back in April, we reported on the story of Monzell Bailey who goes by the nickname “Flip Da Barber”. Flip works at The Hut Barbershop in New York City and was tragically injured by a truck while crossing the street.
A good friend (and overall good samaritan) Sea The Barber took it upon herself to raise funds for her fallen comrade…
After Sea’s “Call to Arms”, the Barber community went into action, sending donations to Flip’s online donation site. A few weeks later, Sea released an Instagram video where Flip thanked everyone for the outpouring of Barber Love…!

We at BARBinc are proud to say that Flip is finally able to walk…!!!

Although he is confined to a wheelchair for most of the day, Flip is able to stand by himself and take a few steps on his own power.

He still has a cast on his cutting hand but at least he no longer needs reconstructive surgery to fix his knees.

So… If you’re interested in helping Flip, please be sure to visit his online donation site (every dollar helps..!)

Flip Da Barber – Online Donation Site

PayPal is the safer, easier way to pay online without revealing your credit card number.

…and take a minute to leave some well-wishes on his Instagram account (it hasn’t been updated in a while, but… You know…)
