Watier, Jean Coutu and Brunet join forces to support the Foundation 

For the second year in a row, Watier, Jean Coutu and Brunet are joining forces to support the Lise Watier Foundation and help local women achieve financial independence.  

From August 25 to September 21, $10 will be donated to the Foundation with the purchase of a Rouge Gourmand lipstick by Watier at Jean Coutu or Brunet, all shades included. 

“It’s heartwarming to see these large companies mobilize to support the professional development of women. Each year, more than 150 women benefit from the Foundation’s Let’s Start Up program. With training, coaching and financial support, women regain confidence in their abilities and are ready to develop a professional project that will lead them to financial independence,” explains Marie-Lise Andrade, President and CEO of the Lise Watier Foundation. 

Make a difference by helping the Lise Watier Foundation support more women by purchasing your lipstick! Thanks to your contribution, more women will become entrepreneurs, obtain a post-secondary degree or find a job that matches their ambitions. 

Do yourself a favor and get your lipstick now by visiting a Jean Coutu or Brunet store or buy it online! 

By purchasing this product and making this gesture of solidarity, you are concretely contributing to : 

  • To help local women find a professional path that meets their expectations;
  • Restore their self-esteem and confidence in their abilities;
  • Offer them opportunity to develop their skills and potential;  
  • Encourage women entrepreneurship;  
  • Create a richer and fairer society.

” I felt exhausted, so I questioned my future. The program changed my life!  It allowed me to refocus on my needs and visualize where I wanted to go. I met women who gave me confidence and shared their knowledge to help me start my own business.

I am so grateful for the Lise Watier Foundation’s financial aid for studies. Thanks to this support, I have the tools I need to become professionally accomplished and to live again. I am proud of where I am today and I know that my children are too… and you can’t put a price on that.

Go ahead, believe in your dreams because anything is possible, really, ANYTHING! Never, at 60, would I have thought it was possible… But thanks to the Let’s Start Up program, I have come out of my shell; I now realize how much potential I have, and I know I will make it.
