Today marks the 13th year of partnership between David Jones and Look Good Feel Better – a not-for-profit organisation and free national program designed to help cancer patients manage the appearance-related side effects caused by any type of treatment for any type of cancer.
To help celebrate Feel Better Month this year, David Jones will proudly be donating $1 from every sale of lip gloss and lipstick sold throughout the month of September to Look Good Feel Better.
“The impact that the appearance related side-effects of cancer can have on patients is often overlooked, which is why David Jones is so proud to be partnering with Look Good Feel Better again this year,” said David Jones general manager of beauty, Rachel Duffy-Packer.
“Whilst not all stores will be open this month, the donation will still be applicable for online sales so we encourage Australians to purchase their favourite lipstick or lip gloss from David Jones to help us support the amazing work Look Good Feel Better do in empowering those experiencing cancer treatment.”
In 2020 alone, David Jones raised over $28,000 for the charity with hopes to exceed this amount for 2021.
“We’re extremely grateful for our longstanding relationship with David Jones, and for their support of the Look Good Feel Better program,” said Look Good Feel Better general manager, Carol Kavurma.
“Feel Better Month gives all of us the opportunity to recognise the importance of a positive mindset and confidence when dealing with a cancer diagnosis, and the awareness and funds that David Jones helps raise throughout the month is invaluable for our cause.”
Look Good Feel Better has been operating since May 1990 with more than 150,000 women, men and teens participating in the program nationally.
Look Good Feel Better offers four services; Face to Face Workshops, Home-Delivered Confidence Kits, Virtual Workshops and Confidence Consults. These services have been developed with the purpose of empowering those undergoing cancer treatment, equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to face their cancer diagnosis with confidence.
David Jones’ campaign with Look Good Feel Better will start September 1, 2021, with $1 from every sale of lip gloss and lipstick purchased online or in store for the month being donated to Look Good Feel Better.
