Avon believes that when women are empowered they can make their dreams a beautiful reality. One of the most powerful demonstrations of Avon’s dedication to that belief is its global philanthropic commitment – with fundraising and grant making programs in more than 50 countries that have donated more than $725 million to causes most important to women, including a global effort to eradicate violence against women.
The statistics are staggering:
- One in three women worldwide will be a victim of domestic violence– physical, sexual, emotional abuse – at least once in her life.
- In the United States, a woman is battered every nine seconds.
- More than three women are murdered each day by their husbands or boyfriends.
- More than ten million children bear witness to this abuse and often carry the violence into their adult relationships.
Avon gives 100% to empower women and change our world. Their ultimate goals are to eradicate domestic violence, promote gender equality, and provide opportunity for women, everywhere. They’re giving 100% of the net profits of our Empowerment fundraising products to achieve these goals. And when you join them – by speaking out against violence, speaking up for women’s empowerment, and purchasing these products, you can help change our world, too.
