As a result of the second fundraising event organized in collaboration with the Lise Watier Foundation, Epiderma is proud to have raised $18,160 for the Let’s Start Up program. The program helps women who are experiencing social, economic or professional vulnerability to become financially self-sufficient. It provides support for women to start a business, pursue post-secondary education or return to the workforce.

During the month of April 2021, $20 was donated to the Lise Watier Foundation from all selected packages sold in one of the 30 Epiderma medical-aesthetic clinics in Quebec and in the virtual clinic.

The Let’s Start Up program is intended for women who wish to take an active role in changing their professional lives for the better. It is currently offered in four locations: Montreal, Quebec City, the Laurentides and Montérégie.

“The values promoted by Epiderma are core to such an approach and we are proud to be associated with the Lise Watier Foundation. Seeing these groups of women take their destiny into their own hands sends a powerful message, and it is essential for us to give back to our community,” explained Julie Bédard, President, Chief Operating Officer, Medicart Corporation.
