Avon Debuts New Crusade

Avon Breast Cancer Crusade Launches Umbrella and a Cosmetics Case as part of the Second Decade of Raising Funds for Access to Care and Finding a Cure for Breast Cancer.
Look beautiful and help save lives this fall with Avon`s new fundraising products to raise funds and awareness for the breast cancer cause. The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade Umbrella and a Cosmetics Case with a free Crusade Ultra Color Rich Renewable lipstick are the newest products to launch in the “pink ribbon” collection this year to celebrate the second decade of the Avon Crusade in the U.S.
Our new Crusade products are valuable additions to our collection, which raise funds to provide access to care for medically underserved women, including minorities, and those without adequate insurance,” said Kathleen Walas, president, Avon Foundation. “We have been funding breast cancer organizations for more than 10 years as part of our corporate commitment to women`s health, but the fight is not yet over, and Avon remains focused on raising lifesaving funds and awareness for the breast cancer cause. Our ongoing support ensures that many of the most vulnerable women nationwide receive parity in breast health medical care.”
About the New “Pink Ribbon” Products;
Offering protection from the elements, the new Avon Breast Cancer Crusade Umbrella is fashionable, black nylon stylishly decorated with a border design featuring the Crusade`s signature pink ribbon, representing the universal symbol of the breast cancer cause.
Stay organized and picture perfect with the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade Cosmetics Case, a glossy, stylish black vinyl carry-all with the Crusade`s signature pink ribbon in a scattered pattern. The cosmetics case has a roomy interior and a zipper closure with pink satin ribbon pull. The cosmetics case comes with a free gift with purchase: an Avon Crusade Ultra Color Rich Renewable Lipstick, available in six fashionable shades: Crusade Pink, Faithful Heart, Strength, Triumph, Courageous Spirit and Inspirational Life.
Each Crusade Umbrella and Cosmetics Case arrives with the free Your Guide to Better Breast Health, which provides important information on breast cancer, early detection guidelines, a listing of medical and support resources, and a glossary of terms.
Available exclusively from Avon beginning in October, both new fundraising products are meaningful gifts for yourself or those you love and a way to show support for a vital cause. The Avon Crusade Umbrella and Cosmetics Case may be conveniently purchased through Avon independent Sales Representatives nationwide, or online at www.avoncrusade.com.
Both products return 100% of the net proceeds to support the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade mission to fund access to care and finding a cure for breast cancer. Funds are awarded to five vital areas of the breast cancer cause nationwide: for awareness, screening and diagnosis, treatment and support services, with a focus on reaching the medically underserved, as well as scientific research.
