Reese Witherspoon, Avon global ambassador and honorary chairman of the Avon Foundation for Women, launched the new Empowerment "Circle of Support" Necklace in recognition of International Women’s Day on March 8.
The necklace is the latest Avon fund-raising product that raises life-saving funds for the Avon Speak Out Against Domestic Violence programme, which has donated nearly $40 million to end the epidemic of violence against women globally.
One hundred percent of the net profits from the necklace’s sale will benefit Avon’s Speak Out Against Domestic Violence initiative. The silvertone necklace features the infinity symbol, which in Avon’s Speak Out campaign represents lives with unlimited potential when free from violence.
"It’s a shocking reality that one in three women worldwide will experience violence in their lives. It’s an unacceptable truth that we must all work to change," said Witherspoon. "In recognition of International Women’s Day, I’m proud to support the Avon Speak Out Against Domestic Violence programme and I encourage everyone to purchase, wear or give the Avon Empowerment Necklace to help raise awareness as well as vital money for domestic abuse support services."
