A day with a good deed is a good day indeed… and that’s why we’re so excited that tomorrow is International Women’s Day (March 8)! Avon and Reese Witherspoon teamed up to create this cute $10 glass bead bracelet to support the charitable efforts of this important day, and a whopping $8.04 from the sale of each bracelet will go directly towards helping stop violence against women. That makes this bracelet a great choice for the women in our lives that we love, our officemates, as party favors, and definitely anyone that’s ever suffered from a violent act.
The new 2011 Avon Foundation Empowerment Bracelet supports ending violence against women as 100 percent of the net profits from the sales will benefit the Avon Foundation for Women programs dedicated to ending violence against women. The 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
- Another 10,000 will be turned away for lack of resources
- Domestic violence hotlines will receive more than 22,000 calls
