Look Good Feel Better Week: Helping Better Begin

Look Good Feel Better
Week, April 26 – May 2, 2015, has always been a time when we work to create heightened awareness of and support for our program. It is a week that enables us to draw some attention so that we may continue to run our workshops and support women with cancer across the country.  It is a week that empowers us to bolster our efforts to Help Better Begin for those battling cancer.

This year, we partnered with Fashion Project, an online charitable re-commerce and community dedicated to raising funds for charitable organizations.  As part of this community, individuals can donate their gently used, high-quality fashion items to benefit the charity of their choice.  Fashion Project designers build an on-line boutique of donated items for each charitable organization from which shoppers can purchase.  Since its launch in 2012, Fashion Project has collected 298,453 items and raised over $600,000 for 1,886 charities around the world.  

During Look Good Feel Better Week, we created our own boutique and asked our celebrity and corporate friends to help us make a powerful impact for our program and the women we serve in two simple ways:

1. Donate one or more gently used (or unused) items from their closets to be sold in our exclusive boutique;  and

2. Reach out to their friends and followers, encouraging them to donate their own items for sale to benefit Look Good Feel Better.

Additionally, we launched a sweepstakes that encourages people to donate their like-new clothing and accessories to our boutique.  Prizes include a lunch date with fashion designer Carmen Marc Valvo, a tour of the CMV Atelier, and a dress of  choice from CMV’s current collection.

We encourage everyone to be a part of our efforts. You could:

1. Donate gently used (or unused), high-quality fashion  items to the Look Good Feel Better boutique;

2. Purchase products from the Look Good Feel Better boutique to refresh your closet for spring;

3.Host donation parties within your company or among your circle of friends;

4.Share our efforts with your followers via corporate and personal social media handles, using the hashtag #HelpBetterBegin; and

5. Place collection bins around your office to gather products to donate on behalf of the company.
