ONE IN A BILLION
*Avon South Africa has raised more than R22 million in aid of breast cancer education and screenings!
We adore Avon, not just because they deliver on great beauty products, but because they’ve always put women first. The company has just hit an incredible milestone: they’ve reached the $1 billion mark in donations towards breast cancer research, as well as gender and domestic violence awareness.
‘Empowerment is interwoven through the fabric of each of our initiatives,’ says Cheryl Heinonen, president of the Avon Foundation for Women. ‘Since Avon’s founding 131 years ago, the company has been breaking barriers and empowering women by offering a path to financial independence and improved health and safety. Our independent Avon representatives and their customers are at the heart of this $1 billion dollar achievement.’
