My parents used to ship me off to camp every summer since I was 10. I actually loved it (except that last summer). So I believe every child deserves the chance to go to camp – and for the past three years Cetaphil and the Children’s Skin Disease Foundation have made that possible for children from around the country with chronic and life-threatening skin diseases. For one week, Camp Wonder campers get to take a break from being patients and enjoy the outdoors.
As a part of this commitment, Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream jars, featuring a limited edition label, are now available exclusively at CVS. Throughout the rest of the month of August, for every sale of this limited edition jar, Cetaphil will donate a portion of the proceeds to the Children’s Skin Disease Foundation and Camp Wonder! Since June 2012, when the initiative kicked off, over $400,000 has been raised.
Camp Wonder, an initiative of the Children’s Skin Disease Foundation, is a medically staffed summer program that gives children ages 7 to 16, who suffer from serious and fatal skin diseases, the opportunity to feel “normal” and simply have fun. The week-long camp is fully funded by The Children’s Skin Disease Foundation (CSDF), an organization founded in May 2000 by Francesca Tenconi. As an adolescent, Francesca suffered from a potentially life threatening skin disease and missed out on normal childhood activities. She wanted to use her experience to help others, so on her 16th birthday she asked friends and family to forgo gifts and help her create CSDF.
The limited edition label was created by current Camp Wonder Camper, Amani Williams whose drawing was selected from submissions received from a label drawing contest and beautifully depicts the story of the children who attend Camp Wonder. Amani said, “I want people to see me for who I am and know that I’m a nice girl. Just because my skin looks different, I want friends too.” Camp Wonder is a place where kids can be who they are on the inside without being judged on the outside.
If you have never tried Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream you should. For one, it’s non-comedogenic and dermatologist recommended. Two, it’s the perfect every day dry skin moisturizer for the entire family and is hard to beat for relief and lasting hydration. It’s for good reason it’s considered one of the best.
So get to CVS and buy a few jars before the end of the month.
