Confidence, Courage and Community

Dec 03, 2010

Amway of Australia has an incredible officemate at its headquarters in Castle Hill in New South Wales.

By donating $5,000 and a portion of its warehouse space as a distribution center for Look Good…Feel Better, Amway Australia is part of a movement to help women and teens maintain their self image while undergoing treatment for cancer.

Look Good…Feel Better (LGFB) is a non-profit organization existing in 21 countries that creates a sense of confidence, courage and community for women and teens undergoing chemotherapy and radiation.

LGFB is supported by trade organizations around the world of which Amway is a member, including the Personal Care Products Council, ACCORD (Advocate for the Consumer, Cosmetic, Hygiene and Specialty Products Industry in Australia), and the Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association in the United Kingdom.

In Australia alone, the organization works through 165 hospitals and cancer treatment centers, providing help to nearly 10,000 females per year through its confidence kits, beauty seminars and one-on-one consultations. It uses Amway’s warehouse space to stock cosmetics donated by several different companies – including our own Artistry Cosmetics – and for its volunteers to assemble and distribute complimentary cosmetics kits to patients not only battling cancer, but also, its appearance-related side effects.

One recipient of LGFB services put it best, “Cancer treatment can be incredibly demoralizing and energy-sapping. But knowing I can still look my best has helped me get through it.”

Amway of Australia is glad to play a small part in helping LGFB achieve its mission. And we hope they know they’re one tenant we’d like to stick around forever!
