How are you? Do you enjoy the weather?
How are you spending your days? Are you doing something special? Do tell!
Today I will talk to you about an event I went to, not very long ago at AVON Headquarters in Athens.
They invited 40 beauty bloggers in order to present the already world known AVON, show us their new products, inform us about the best sellers and most importantly walk us through the fundraising campaigns they are running as a company.
I am sure that all of you are familiar with AVON.
It is a brand who’s been around since 1886 and founded by David McConnell in the United States. There are about 6,4 million Avon Representatives in more than 100 countries. That says a lot, don’t you think?
During the presentation, they showed us new products that are about to be released and classic best sellers, some of which were given for a try.
The thing that caught my eye was of course was the new bb creme.
Everyone is talking about bb cremes and we want to try them all!
The Avon Skin Loving Beauty Balm comes in 6 natural skin shades, loaded with vitamin E & SPF 15, reduces any redness, softens your skin and even out your tone.
It is a great product worth trying!
However there was one thing, no, three things that really hooked me.
Avon is currently running 3 campaigns:
Avon Foundation against Breast Cancer
Since 1955, Avon Foundation has helped millions of women through information, updates, prevention. They offer over 850 million dollars in more than 50 countries for education, diagnosis, support and scientific research.
Here in Greece, Avon is a true supporter of the Greek Cancer Society and together they have managed the sponsorship as well as the purchase and operation of a mobile mammography unit art.
The mobile mammography unit began its precious journey in Greece in April 2010 and since then they have performed over 14.500 free digital mammograms!
Everyone can help support and expand this action by purchasing some special Avon Products such as the Pink Calendar.

Avon Foundation against Domestic Violence
This campaign launched in 2004 in the United States. Through educational programs, prevention and information, they support mostly women and their families who suffer from Domestic Violence.
Avon Greece with the cooperation of WIN Hellas, they finance educational seminars within the families suffering from this, focusing mostly on the children affected in order to stop the cycle of violence.
This campaign is supported through the sales of products empowered such as the Empowerment Necklace.

Hello Green Tomorrow Campaign
“Avon Hello Green Tomorrow is mobilizing a global environment movement to nurture nature and help end deforestation”.
With mottos like “Helping Protect Forest Worldwide” & “Paper is a sustainable Resource” they are trying to unite people, educate them and mobilize them to do good and give back in this important cause.
Help Avon protect the Forests can make a huge difference in the world we live in.
Selections of special fundraising products have been creating in order to expand the life and the purpose of this campaign such as the Green Bag.

Companies such as AVON inspire women and people around the world to do good around them in so many ways that is beyond touching.
We should all give it a minute to look to the person next to us, advise them and support them.
Eyes wide Open should be our new thought.

It is worth it.
