Avon Gives Back
Avon Foundation for Women
Breast cancer affects 1 in 8 women in their lifetime (Breastcancer.org). In 2017, an estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the US. First of all, we need to understand these numbers are huge! Avon listens and gives back.
I am proud to work for a company that not only takes care of me as an entrepreneur, but also takes care of those in need through the Avon Foundation for Women.
As an Avon representative, I have a small part in the effort to raise funds for the Avon Foundation for Women. Each Avon campaign brochure has fundraising products which I encourage my customers to purchase. In addition to receiving beautiful products, a 20% donation goes to the Avon Foundation for Women. Therefore, a win win situation!
The Life-Changing Lipstick and Your Beauty is Infinite Sets are examples of fundraising products from Campaign 22.
Speak Out Against Domestic Violence
Avon listens to those who suffer in silence and gives back. In 2004, the Avon Foundation has helped to educate nearly 30 million women about domestic violence and served over 11 million, guiding them and their families to emergency shelters and back to self-sufficiency.
How does Avon give back?
Avon donates 20% of net profits from the Breast Cancer Crusade and Domestic Violence fundraising products, up to $500,000. Therefore, each purchase is a win win.
