We all know an Avon Lady. I’ll bet we all know several Avon Ladies. But do you know about the Avon Foundation? The Avon Foundation has been around for more than 50 years and it’s dedicated to “improving the lives of women and their families”. Their attention is mainly on breast cancer awareness and treatments, and domestic violence issues.
Until this morning, I was unaware of the extent of their work. Through sales of Avon’s Pink Ribbon products, funds have gone to breast cancer research, patient care and support and even food delivery services for those at home too ill to care for themselves. I was so impressed with the list of programs Avon has been involved with that I felt I had to share the information here.
Today, I will be ordering this –
It’s a breast cancer crusade memo pad – it’s inexpensive, goes for a great cause and what writer doesn’t need another jotter?
I will also be ordering this –
Actress, Reese Witherspoon is the spokesperson for Avon’s Women’s Empowerment Fund and she had this to say about this bracelet –
“As honorary chair of the Avon Foundation, I’m very excited to introduce Avon’s first global charity product designed to save and improve women’s lives worldwide.
Purchase the Women’s Empowerment Bracelet for yourself and your friends. It’s a symbol of unity that represents a future without limitations for all women. It represents everything I love about this company.”
I hope you will consider ordering one of Avon’s fundraising products for yourself and for your friends. To show you how much I hope you will do this, I’m giving away one item to a lucky someone who comments on this post. I’ll pick a random commenter by Friday and as soon as I recieve your contact information, I will send this item directly to you –
We must stand together in the fight against disease and domestic violence. This is one simple way to start the process, is it not?
