Wicked Awesome Wishes: Providing Relief During COVID-19
Lady Jane’s Haircuts for Men is a “wicked awesome” men’s hair cut establishment headquartered in Michigan. Their CEO and Founder, Chad Johnson, started his company in 2004 with the vision to “set out each day to make the Lady Jane’s experience better for each and every guy.”
In 2013 Lady Jane’s CEO followed a lifelong passion to give back to his community.
He applied for fiscal sponsorship and established Wicked Awesome Wishes. Its mission is to give assistance directly to those in need, surprising and delighting those who thought they didn’t have a chance, and giving to those who have fallen on bad times.
This April, Lady Jane’s and Wicked Awesome Wishes partnered in the quest to provide financial assistance to stylists and their families as they were negatively affected by COVID-19. Wicked Awesome Wishes helped Lady Jane’s deliver more than $100,000 in grants to stylists in need during the pandemic. They were able to support almost 500 stylists.
even during a pandemic that directly affected their business and charitable program,
they remained active in their mission to provide for those in need.
