NEW YORK--Avons Breast Cancer Awareness Crusade is combining health and beauty with the introduction of its newest fundraising product, the Avon Pink Ribbon Cosmetics Case.
The cosmetics case joins Avons other pink ribbon products, including a pin and coffee mug, proceeds of which have helped Avons Crusade raise more than $25 million for US nonprofit breast health programs nationwide and contributed to the Avon Worldwide Fund for Womens Health, a global initiative that is expected to reach the $50 million fundraising mark in 1998.
"The message we are bringing to women this year is: Claim Your Health, Claim Your Beauty," said Joanne Mazurki, director of Avons Crusade. "We are reminding women that along with their daily beauty routines, they should be equally diligent about practicing good breast health."
The Cosmetics Case will be available in October at a price of $3.00. To order, contact the nearest Avon Sales Representative or call 1-800-FOR-AVON.
