Indianapolis Charity Features G Michael Salon & Lash and Brow Co. in Carmel, Indiana

G Michael Salon, Indy’s largest hair salon, announced today that the company will partner with Lash & Brow Design Co. of Carmel, Indiana as a joint venture to raise money for burn survivors.

Proceeds from hair services at G Michael Salon and brow and lash services at Lash & Brow Design Co. will benefit The Hoosier Burn Camp during the month of March.

The Hoosier Burn Camp is a nonprofit organization committed to providing life-changing experiences for young people who have suffered the physical and emotional trauma associated with a severe burn injury. The Hoosier Burn Camp creates experiences for burn survivors where they can just be one of the kids in a safe and supportive environment. 

Kate and Jared Shaughnessy, owners of Lash & Brow Design Co., have a personal connection to the cause. “I lost a lot of skin as the result of an accident and received treatment at Wishard’s burn unit,” Jared says.  “While in recovery I met firefighters who were volunteering with Hoosier Burn Camp and became inspired to get involved. Kate and I have attended several public days at the camp. This charity is near and dear to our hearts.” Jared is now a firefighter with the Fishers Fire Department.

G Michael Salon’s owner, Greg Lee, says his commitment to charity work is an obligation. “As our business continues to grow and thrive we have an opportunity to make a real difference in more lives. We have a responsibility to our city to make an impact. We don’t complain about the way things are – we create change by getting involved.”

During a recent networking event the business owners spoke of their passions for charity and community activism.  “It makes sense that we should work together,” says Kate. “When like-minded people pull their resources and ideas it creates synergy for the cause.”
