Avon's Breast Cancer Crusade was launched in 1992 and its Speak Out Against Domestic Violence initiative followed in 2004. There are ample opportunities for Associates around the world who are interested in these causes to get involved.
The company is also committed to environmental stewardship through its Healthy Forests, Beautiful World program, engaging and mobilizing millions of people in more than 50 countries to help end deforestation. The global fundraising program has donated more than $7.5 million for global reforestation to The Nature Conservancy (TNC) and World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Healthy Forests, Beautiful World, which began in 2010, supports the rainforests in Brazil and Indonesia, two of the world’s most critically endangered ecosystems that play a crucial role in mitigating climate change, supporting biodiversity and providing for the health and economic well-being of millions of women, families and communities worldwide.
