In a move to promote literacy, Iowa hairdresser Courtney Holmes at Spark Family Hair Salon is giving away free haircuts once a month to kids that read to barbers while getting a cut.

Holmes’ efforts have gained attention on social media and he is encouraging others to promote literacy with the hashtag ‪#‎barberreadingchallenge.‬ Holmes describes the project in detail in the above YouTube video.
