YouTubers give homeless family a makeover

The folks over at GiveBackFilms are becoming known for their acts of kindness that are uploaded to YouTube, but this one will be hard to top.
The video features Reggie, Dawn and Heavynne Lee, a homeless family from Utah. They had been living in a homeless shelter since August after losing their jobs in 2012.
The family is first taken to a hair salon for a cut. Reggie said it was his first professional haircut since "seventh grade." The salon owner closes out with a great gesture of his own.
As the makeover goes along, the family gets new clothes and training for job interviews. The filmmakers buy them food and get them a hotel room to stay in.
We could tell you everything that happens, but this video is just too touching to miss.
