Jean Coutu is starting the year off on a heartfelt note, along with Rythme and Clarins, to once again support the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation as part of the 17th annual Mois des Câlins de Sainte-Justine, one of Quebec’s most beloved fundraisers.
Proudly embracing the cause since 2006
Over the years, Jean Coutu has helped raise close to $5.5 million through the Mois des Câlins de Sainte-Justine campaign, benefiting thousands of children and families across the province. The CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation has directed these funds to various programs and initiatives, among them the Marie Enfant Rehabilitation Centre (CRME).
For every tube of "Rose Câlins" Lip Perfector by Clarins you buy at any Jean Coutu store in Quebec, $10 will go to the CHU Sainte-Justine Foundation. Thank you for joining us in contributing to this very worthy cause.
Clarins “Rose Câlins” Lip Perfector is a softly textured gel with a deliciously sweet scent and 3D shimmer. Experience the lusciously smooth, shiny and fuller lips you’ve always dreamed of!
Last year, more than 1,500 young artists from around Quebec took part in the 9th annual Dessine-moi un câlin contest, in conjunction with the Mois des Câlins de Sainte-Justine. The winning entry is a wonderful creation by 11-year-old Maria-Paula from Repentigny.
Who will be awarded top honours this year? All children 5 to 12 from across de province are invited to submit their drawings between now and February 20.
Healing hugs for young rehab patients and their families
This campaign has a life-changing impact on young rehab patients like 15-year-old Alexis, who was born with spastic cerebral palsy. After a gruelling surgical procedure, he is working hard to regain the use of his legs at the CRME, his second home for the past year. Thanks to everyone at Sainte-Justine and the state-of-the-art care he is receiving, his family can hold out hope for a better tomorrow.
Show your love!
In addition to empowering Sainte-Justine to provide children with the highest standard of health care, the funds raised during the 17th annual Mois des Câlins campaign will be used to support various initiatives aimed at humanizing the services at Sainte-Justine’s Marie Enfant Rehabilitation Centre (CRME). The CRME is the only facility in Quebec dedicated exclusively to pediatric rehabilitation. Every year, 5,000 young patients are treated at the CRME for a motor impairment or language disorder.
The CRME offers a wide range of rehabilitation, adjustment and social integration services. Staffed by 250 professionals and 15 researchers, the centre strives to help children develop their capacities, become more independent and learn essential skills of daily living to improve their overall quality of life.
Get your Clarins "Rose Câlins" Lip Perfector at your local Jean Coutu and send a great big hug out to children who need one.
