Galderma Laboratories has debuted its limited-edition Cetaphil product display in partnership with the Children’s Skin Disease Foundation (CSDF) and Camp Wonder, an initiative of the CSDF.
Camp Wonder, a medically staffed summer program, invites nearly 100 children who suffer from severe and fatal skin diseases to experience a week of respite from their illnesses and the fun of being at summer camp like their peers. The week-long camp is funded by the CSDF, founded in May 2000 by Francesca Tenconi. As an adolescent, she suffered from a potentially life-threatening skin disease and missed out on normal childhood activities. Tenconi created the CSDF because she wanted to use her experience to help others.
As part of Cetaphil’s five-year partnership with Camp Wonder, the brand’s Moisturizing Cream is being showcased exclusively at 1,500 CVS Pharmacy locations nationwide through June 2016, honoring the memory of Camp Wonder camper, Samantha “Sammie” Smith.
“It is very special to all of us at Galderma to see the Camp Wonder limited-edition display featuring Sammie’s artwork at CVS Pharmacy locations for another year in a row. Throughout our five years in partnership, Galderma and the Cetaphil brand have raised over $700,000 to help support the camp, which is made possible through partners like CVS Pharmacy,” said Miles Harrison, president and general manager of Galderma for North America. “It is our plan to support the CSDF and Camp Wonder for years to come and continue to bring awareness to children suffering from life-threatening skin diseases through the purchase of our limited-edition product.”
