Consumers can help to support Motherisk, a program of The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), during the Kiss for Life campaign with the purchase of the specially-marked Clarins Lip Perfector, exclusively available at 600 Shoppers Drug Mart locations across Ontario.
Motherisk recently celebrated its 25th anniversary and gratefully recognized Shoppers Drug Mart’s long-standing support that began in 1998.
