Good, better, best
Look Good Feel Better (a national support program that helps women manage the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment) and Loblaws (uh, I'm assuming you know what that is) have partnered up to launch a national campaign aiming to raise $150,000. Here's how. From September 3 to October 1, a $2 donation at all of the chain's Refresh and Drugstore Pharmacy counters will land you a 22ml tube of Look Good Feel Better brand opalescent-sparkle lip gloss. At that price, hell, you should score one for all the women in your life and consider it double bonus points in the good deed category. For more deets, visit lookgoodfeelbetter.ca or call 1-800-914 LOOK.
