International Women’s Day: Support a Worthy Cause

By  March 08, 2011

Today is International  Women’s Day. It’s a time to honor and celebrate women of the world who strive to make this planet a better place. To mark the occasion, Avon has designed a bracelet to support women’s empowerment issues. All net profits from the sales of this bracelet will benefit the Avon Foundation for Women programs which are  dedicated to ending violence against women.

Domestic violence statistics for just one ordinary day in the United States are staggering. Three women will die at the hands of an intimate partner. More than 70,000 domestic violence victims will receive services from domestic violence programs. And another 10,000 will be turned away for lack of resources. Domestic violence hotlines will receive more than 22,000 calls.

Make a difference and support the cause for your fellow womankind.
