ONE IN A BIL­LION

Fairlady - - BEAUTY BUZZ -

*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.’
