From September 29th until October 25th, Lancôme invites you to Instagram or Tweet your hands in the shape of a heart and post to social media with the #LancomeGivesBack hashtag, and the brand will make a $1 donation to St. Jude in your honor (up to the $20,000 goal) as a part of their Génifique Day initiative to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Genifique Day: Celebrating the Beauty of Scientific Research
During the month of October, visit any participating Lancome counter to try a deluxe seven-day introductory sample of Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate. On October 24th and 25th celebrate National Genifique Day and a $7 donation will be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for each Genifique item sold at U.S. Lancome counters and on www.lancome.com.
Each year, in honor of national Génifique Day, hundreds of thousands of dollars in vital donations are raised for St. Jude. Each Génifique bottle sold helps the hospital find cures. It costs, $2 million a day to operate the hospital, so 21 bottles can pay for one night of family housing. Nine bottles could cover one blood count test. Five bottles can buy a day of meals. And just three bottles could pay for one bone marrow needle. It’s that easy to make a difference and your individual contribution can help in so many ways.
“Thanks to Lancôme and other supporters, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases,” says Richard Shadyac Jr., President and CEO of ALSAC/St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. “Our founder Danny Thomas believed that no child should die in the dawn of life. To fulfill this promise, St. Jude depends on initiatives like national Genifique Day to support the life-saving research and treatment conducted at the hospital, and ensure that no family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.”
The Génifique collection serves as the epitome of Lancôme’s commitment to helping women look and feel their overall best. Inspired by cutting edge science, Génifique’s award-winning formula infuses skin with radiance while visibly reactivating the 10 key signs of youth.
