Women Helping Women

Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon, honorary chair of Avon Foundation for Women, launched an Empowerment Bracelet, which will raise funds to help women who are victims of violence. Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread violations of human rights. It can include physical, sexual, psychological and economic abuse, and it cuts across boundaries of age, race, culture, wealth and geography. It takes place in the home, on the streets, in schools, the workplace, in farm fields, refugee camps, during conflicts and crises.
The bracelet, part of the Avon Women's Empowerment product collection, retails for $10 with 100% of net profits (about $8.04 for each bracelet sold) benefiting Avon Foundation for Women programs dedicated to ending violence against women.

definitely a great cause. I always think it is great to wear pieces of clothing and accessories that have had a positive impact in some way.
