Lips4Wigs project has delivered a supply of donated lipsticks to the cancer center at Northwestern Memorial Hospital at 675 St. Clair in Chicago. See More

THE STORY:

Funds raised will be used to purchase lipsticks for cancer and alopecia patients who get fitted for wigs. To a woman patient who has lost hair after treatment or a surgical procedure, a scarf or a wig is often used, particularly when out in public. Watching a wig-fitting session, I noticed that even though the wig provided a welcomed transformation, it was the application of lipstick that brightened the face and finished the look. In honor of the 85th birthday of a patient fighting cancer, this LIPS4WIGS project hopes to gift at least 85 lipsticks with the help of your generous donation. Initial donations will be used to purchase lipsticks that will be beautifully packaged and a card will be included with a message acknowledging your donation: Donated by [your name] or Donated anonymously Distributions will start at the treatment waiting room at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago and at the wig specialist who works with patients at their hospital room or in his shop. I call this project "LIPS4WIGS". Will you please consider supporting this project so we can "gift" lipsticks to deserving patients? Your support, although not tax deductible, will bring a smile to someone's face. Thank you for supporting LIPS4WIGS. Kind regards, Sharon
