As a member of Amnesty International, an organisation that fights for human rights, I joined in a protest for stopping violence against women. Avon has recently launched a campaign supporting this cause, it is reported that ‘one in three women is a victim of violence, and it is estimated some 10 million children witness violence in their families each year. In 2008, Avon Products, Inc. and the Avon Foundation introduced the company’s first-ever global fundraising product, the Women’s Empowerment Bracelet, designed to save and improve women’s lives worldwide. The bracelet was unveiled by Avon’s Global Ambassador Reese Witherspoon at Avon’s 2008 Global Summit for a Better Tomorrow held at the United Nations in partnership with UNIFEM’. It is impressive that such a large company such as Avon are willing to spend a large budget on such a worthy cause, hopefully other such high status companies will follow suit.
