Feel Better Month runs throughout September and encourages all Australians to acknowledge the importance of self-confidence and a positive mindset, in support of the thousands of cancer patients who will benefit from the Look Good Feel Better program this year.
With more than 150,000 Australians expected to be diagnosed with cancer in 2021*, we want to ensure all women, men and teens undergoing any type of treatment for any type of cancer continue to have access to our services, and the opportunity to receive our support if they wish to.
But we can’t achieve this without your help.
All services provided by Look Good Feel Better 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.
Your help in raising awareness and funds will ensure that all Australians undergoing treatment for cancer can benefit from the Look Good Feel Better program, free-of-charge.
We’d love for you to celebrate with us during Feel Better Month, and help us spread the word. Here’s how you can get involved throughout September:
Look good, make change
For the whole month of September at David Jones, and from Sunday 5th to Saturday 18th of September at Myer, $1 from every lipstick or lip gloss purchased in-store or online will be donated to Look Good Feel Better in support of Feel Better Month.
Purchase a pop of colour for your pout, and know you’ll be looking good while making positive change through the Look Good Feel Better program!
Feel Better, online!
In addition to our women’s, men’s and young adults Virtual Workshops, we’re offering a number of quick and easy tutorials through Facebook Live on some of the most commonly requested topics, as well as a range of virtual workshops focusing on overall wellness. We also have several language workshops available throughout the month.
A number of experts in their fields will be joining us for the sessions, ensuring they’ll be packed with practical information.
The schedule is available to view below, and can be downloaded here.
You can hold a creative (and ‘physically distant’) fundraising activity in support of Look Good Feel Better any time throughout the month.
Take a look at our fundraising guide to get some ideas, and register your event.
Give a gift in celebration
If you are celebrating a special occasion in September, asking your family and friends for a donation to Look Good Feel Better rather than a gift is a remarkable way to make a difference.
Your generosity will allow more Australians to participate in the Look Good Feel Better program, helping them face their cancer diagnosis with confidence – an extra-special cause for celebration!
You can choose to create a fundraising page to share with friends and family or simply make a one-off donation – visit our Donate page here
Share the love
Share a photo of your fundraising activity, or share one of our social media posts. Let your followers know about our cause, and encourage them to show their support too. The more people know about us, the more people we can help! Be sure to tag us – @LGFBAustralia and use #LGFBAustralia #FeelBetterMonth
As an independent not-for-profit organisation, not affiliated with any other cancer charity or support service, and with no government funding, it is your generosity that allows us to provide our program free-of-charge to cancer patients across the country.
