Creating a positive impact on other people’s lives and society is not an easy feat. Sure, there are many ways to help make the world a better place, but having the heart to do so creates an even more lasting effect on the beneficiaries and inspires people around to do the same.
This is the case for Martino Cartier, who gives the gift of confidence to those who lost it because of their ailment through his foundation, Wigs & Wishes.
Martino Cartier is a salon owner, stylist, educator, inspirational speaker, and TV personality who had a vision of working with other salons to create a haven for women regardless of their financial status. Eventually, he was able to encourage other salon owners and stylists to join him in this endeavor. Called Friends Are By Your Side, Martino started giving away free wigs to women who lost their hair due to chemotherapy through their organization.
But his story took on a new light when he met a lovely girl who was also fighting cancer. He made a wig for her and helped grant her dying wish of meeting her favorite singer. Although she passed on, seeing her joy when her wish was granted inspired Martino to do the same for more children like her.
With this experience, the organization was reborn into Wigs & Wishes, a non-profit organization that provides free wigs and grants wishes to cancer-stricken women and children. Together with numerous salon owners, stylists, and beauty industry experts, Wigs & Wishes puts a smile on the faces of its beneficiaries, giving them confidence, joy, and a positive outlook in life. So far, Wigs & Wishes has given away 100,000 wigs to women and has granted dozens of wishes to children fighting cancer. with the help and support of generous sponsors and donors.
Although Wigs & Wishes has helped a lot of brave cancer-stricken souls since it started, it would not have been possible without the help of generous sponsors and donors. As a non-profit, the organization only gets funding from sponsorship and donations, which are, admittedly, quite challenging to come by. That is why the group is doing its best in spreading the news, organizing fundraisers, and inviting more sponsors and donors to join the cause.
So far, Wigs & Wishes has partnered with several salons and corporations. But to keep doing its mission, it needs to have more individuals and entities involved. To help bring back their lost confidence and positivity, and to put smiles on their faces, the non-profit organization has different opportunities for sponsors and donors to join, whether as a corporate partner or a partner salon. It also has several other donation channels to make it easier for anyone to support the cause. All the important details about sponsorship and donations are available on its website.
Having the heart to uplift the lives of others is truly an amazing opportunity to leave a lasting positive impact on others. By joining organizations such as Wigs & Wishes, one can truly say that they helped change the lives of others one wig and one wish at a time.
