Breast Cancer Awareness is something that is very close to our hearts here at Avon. Therefore, during Breast Cancer Awareness month, our Associates held a fundraising bake-off with prizes for the best creations. The contribution was amazing and the treats that were brought to the table were delicious. Everyone in the office wore something pink to go with the theme.
Over the years the Avon Foundation has contributed over $1 billion in more than 50 countries – with more than $800 million to breast cancer programs. Almost 250,000 women received free breast cancer screenings as a result of Avon’s events or programs and over 6.5 million printed breast health information or educational materials were distributed. This is a huge testament to the commitment of our Representatives, and for this we are very proud.
In ANZ at the end of August, we held a fabulous cocktail event celebrating both our 130 years, and our 20 years of commitment to saving lives through breast cancer clinical trials research with the ANZ Breast Cancer Trials Group (ANZ BCTG). Our President & Managing Director, Sharon Plant, was very proud to present the ANZ BCTG with a cheque for $500,000 taking the total amount we have donated to them to over $10M!
You can continue to help raise vital funds for breast cancer research by purchasing a product from our stylish and functional Breast Cancer Crusade product range. 100% of profits go to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, supporting charities such as the ANZ BCTG, New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation and YWCA Encore Program.
