Join Avon CEO Sheri McCoy in the Fight Against
A Message from Sheri McCoy, CEO, Avon Products, Inc. to Avon (Independent Sales) Representatives
I'm reaching out to you as we enter October, which is recognized around the world as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
This has been a challenging year for Avon in many ways, but it is also a very special year as together we celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, launched in the U.K. in 1992. I want to say Thank You for all that you have done to reach this important milestone. To date, Avon has donated more than $780 million to fighting breast cancer.
Avon Representatives' commitment to this cause has taken the Crusade global. You have spread the word to your customers, who have purchased more than $300 million worth of pink ribbon products in 58 countries. Your efforts allow Avon to fund programs that advance research and equal access to quality care for every woman, regardless of their ability to pay. Results like this make me proud to part of the Avon family.
Throughout October, Avon will recognize Breast Cancer Awareness Month with activities worldwide including our Avon Walk Around the World for Breast Cancer. This month alone we'll be walking in more than 20 Avon cities, from Panama City to Zagreb and from Paris to Johannesburg. If there is a Walk near you - walk, volunteer, cheer or support us if you can – it is an experience you will never forget. Team Avon will be out in full force at the Avon Walk in New York City on October 20-21. I will be walking in honor of my mother, a breast cancer survivor.
There is another easy and fun way you can show your support: pink yourself on Facebook. You can enhance your Facebook profile picture by tinting it pink, adding an Avon pink ribbon or the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade logo. Click here to join Avon Representatives and associates in more than 30 markets around the world. It's a great way to raise awareness about breast cancer and share your pride in Avon.
I know you all share my pride in our Crusade's growth and impact. So much has been accomplished already, and we're not about to stop now. Avon is more committed than ever to supporting you – our Representatives – both in providing economic opportunities through our businesses opportunity and in championing causes like breast cancer on behalf of women everywhere.
Again, my heartfelt thanks go to each and every one of you for being IN IT TO END IT with Avon.
