2 Montrealers Handed Out $5,000 Worth Of Winter Coats To The Homeless

Have you ever been asked for change from someone on street and wondered if there was something better you could do to help instead of of just giving them a dollar?

Well 2 Montrealers didn't just sit around wondering about that, they went out and took action.

In order to celebrate Thanksgiving, David Obegi and Casey Fratta and their fantastic haircuts went out and bought over $5,000 worth of winter coats from Oxygen collections and distributed them to the homeless over the weekend.

Their goal is to spread awareness and to encourage others to do their own part to help the homeless.
