International Women’s Day is celebrated on the March 8th every year, and to mark this very special day in 2009, Avon launched the Avon Empowerment Bracelet to raise funds for and awareness of domestic violence. Domestic violence is a hidden crime, and is one of the biggest killers globally of women 16-44. In New Zealand, each year 11 women die and more than 400 women are hospitalised due to assault, with 50% of all homicides of New Zealand women being committed by the womanís partner, or ex-partner.
When you purchase the Women’s Empowerment Necklace for yourself or your friends, you make a personal statement against domestic violence without saying a word – When you wear the Empowerment Necklace you share the message with everyone you meet. The small price of $3.99 will raise money that can help save the lives of women trapped in the cycle of domestic violence, and the message you will be wearing might just raise the awareness of someone who needs help.
• Show your support • Show your solidarity
• Wear the jewellery that will help change the world
To further enhance its support Avon launched the Women’s Empowerment Necklace in 2010, also available for $3.99. You can help end the cycle of domestic violence for women around the world, by simply showing your support and wearing your Necklace with pride.
100% of profits from the sale of the Women’s Empowerment Necklace will be donated to the Avon Empowerment Fund
