Inspired by our corporate mission, Jean Yip is committed to being a socially responsible corporation by giving back to the community, making the world a more beautiful place for the less fortunate.
Hair for Hope by Children’s Cancer Foundation
Jean Yip is the official stylist sponsor for Hair for Hope since 2011. Initiated by Children’s Cancer Foundation, Hair for Hope is the only head-shaving project in Singapore that aims to raise funds and awareness of childhood cancer. Every shaven head represents an understanding by the individual of the ordeals that a child with cancer is subjected to.
The Needy Group
Jean Yip has also self-initiated hair-cutting project that lasted over six months to celebrate its 25th anniversary. A total of 25 centers participated for the project, e.g. Ang Mo Kio Community Home, Association of Visually Handicap, AWWA Educational Service, AWWA Family Service Centre, Methodist Children’s Home, Moral Home for the Aged Sick, Ren Ci Hospital, Singapore Association for the Deaf, Touch Community Service and many others.
Apart from the 500 people who benefited from the project, the Jean Yip staff that took part gained a strong sense of satisfaction for doing their part for our community.
Breast Cancer Awareness Month by Breast Cancer Foundation
Jean Yip believes in helping people of the world develop a stronger sense of self-image and confidence. Breast cancer is a disease that not only affects the health of survivors; it also affects the self-image of a woman. As such, Jean Yip Group has pledged to be part of the “Wear the Pink Ribbon Campaign” by being a distribution outlet for Breast Cancer Foundation’s newly designed pins for 2012 and 2013.
