I was very touched when I read this article from Lean In where Reese Witherspoon opens up about her initially anxiety to becoming the Avon Foundation’s Global Ambassador. She almost declined the offer 6 years ago when they first offered it to her due to fear of having to speak in public over important women’s issues like speaking out against domestic violence and breast cancer awareness. I think Reese has done an amazing job as a spokeswoman for Avon and I am so glad she conquered her fears and said yes.
100% of net profits ($1.00) will be donated to the Avon Foundation to fund programs to end violence against women. One in three women worldwide will be a victim of domestic violence in her lifetime. At Avon, we are committed to empowering women. The Avon Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program has committed nearly $50 million, in over 50 countries, to organizations and programs focused on awareness, education, direct services and prevention programs to help end the cycle of domestic and gender violence.
