The Look Good Feel Better (LGFB) Argentina program would like to congratulate and thank our colleagues and role models from LGFB U.S. on their 25th anniversary and wish them continued fruitful work and sustained growth.
In 1999 , Mrs Carolyn Deaver, CTFA Vice-president, visited our country bringing the LGFB seed to CAPA, Argentine Chamber of Cosmetics and Perfume Industry. That seed germinated and the following year, in March 2000 , “ Look Good Feel Better Argentina ” was born. In the beginning we had 2 workshops per month at the CAPA offices and a goal to reach 200 beneficiaries that year. Thus, Argentina became the first Latin American country to carry out the program thanks to the commitment and support of CAPA members.
Today we can proudly say we have reached over 1400 beneficiaries in 2013, thanks to more than 60 volunteers and about 19,000 products donated by member companies. LGFB Argentina has conducted over 110 workshops throughout the city of Buenos Aires and 10 other states throughout our country at our CAPA´s offices as well as in other public and private institutions and other NGOs.
We hope the U.S. and Argentine programs continue to spread the caring spirit of helping the many women coping with cancer and its treatments, reinforcing their confidence and self-esteem.
