While we’ve been afforded so many blessings in life, we truly believe that we have a higher purpose: to give back. We could have easily given money to already-established causes, but it wouldn’t have given us the personal interaction we desire.
With this principle in mind, we created Wicked Awesome Wishes as a means of giving back, setting out to establish a charity like no other. We consider WAW an honest-to-goodness, well-intentioned, non-profit organization based on the idea that charity is supposed to support the community of people who are in need and that helps people directly.
People — down-to-earth, real people — helped us build our business and our livelihood. It is those people, often blue collar Detroiters, who form the basis of all we do. That’s why we formed our charity to support any individual in need and make their wishes come true.
WAW is about:
Enabling others to experience or accomplish what they thought they never could
Surprising and delighting those who thought they didn’t stand a chance
Giving to those who have fallen on bad times
Spreading happiness, joy, and hope to children
What does that look like? We may help a single, widowed mother who can’t afford Christmas presents for her four kids, a graduating senior without the means to afford college tuition, an unemployed veteran in need of rent money. Helping individuals like this directly — handing them assistance with our own two hands — is our passion. No red tape, no hurdles, no middle men.
We believe in people, and we believe in making Wicked Awesome Wishes come true.
