WHAT A DIFFERENCE A DAB MAKES!

For over 27 years, national charity Look Good Feel Better has been committed to the notion that a touch of colour; be it a dab of blush, a sweep of lipstick or a brightly coloured turban can work wonders to boost the self-esteem and confidence of women undergoing treatment for cancer. 

As a free community service program with a focus on managing the appearance-related side-effects of cancer treatment, the saying “give a woman the right lipstick and she can conquer the world” epitomises the feeling of confidence each Look Good Feel Better participant leaves a workshop with.

To prove the difference a lipstick can make, in September 2017 retailers David Jones and Myer threw their support behind the charity’s annual Feel Better Month fundraising campaign, for the third year in a row. A donation of $1 from every lipstick and lip gloss sold nationally was pledged, with a combined total of over $180,000 raised by the close of the month. 

Look Good Feel Better National Manager, Carol Kavurma, thanked the retailers, saying “With the charity receiving no government funding, this generosity is vital for allowing the service to continue to be provided to cancer patients free-of-charge. The support of David Jones and Myer throughout Feel Better Month has ensured that close to 2,500 cancer patients across Australia can benefit from the program over the coming year – we’re grateful for this incredible support.”

Feel Better Month will run again throughout September this year. To show your support visit lgfb.org.au/ways-to-give or email fundraising@lgfb.org.au.
