Avon--What a Great Company

So I went to the Avon Believe World Tour last week and had a wonderful time. I remember taking baths in the original Skin So Soft as a kid and wearing Platinum  colored Avon lipstick (I know, I'm dating myself here). I used to be an Avon rep years ago, but never thought much about it. Now, I'm more serious about it. Going to this event was the best great. I learned stuff about the company I never knew. It was started by a man. It is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year, there is one consultant who has been with the company 70 years!

Avon has multiple celebrity spokespersons. Patrick Dempsy is one who was at the event. Others spoke via recorded messages. They represent Avon because it is a company that actively fights against breast cancer and domestic violence, while promoting women. Patrick Dempsey's mother has had 5 bouts of cancer, including ovarian cancer and is still alive. Here is a photo of our Chairman/CEO is Andrea Jung--what a beautiful woman.
She too has been affected by breast cancer as she shared that her mother and grandmother both have had this dreadful disease. So with each purchase y'all make, you help avon build centers and fight this dreadful disease.


This is the company that puts mascara on lashes and food on tables…
That fights wrinkles with one hand and Breast Cancer with the other…
That knows the value of a perfect lip,
 but still opens its mouth and speaks out against
Domestic Violence and for Women's Financial Independence...
This is the company that not only brings beauty to doors, but also opens them…
The company that supports 6 million Representatives in over 100 countries…
This is AVON.
The company, that for 125 years,
has stood for
beauty, innovation, optimism and above all
for women.
