Reese Witherspoon and Avon have introduced the new Avon Empowerment "Circle of Support" Necklace, in conjunction with International Women's Day, March 8. This item will raise funds to help end violence against women around the world. The silver-toned necklace is beautiful as well as symbolic. It catches the eye, as the design features an infinity symbol enclosed in a circle.
The design motif stands for the unlimited potential women's lives have, when freed from domestic violence. Potential to create. Potential to develop. Potential to overcome obstacles. The symbolic significance is that attitudes must change, before behaviors will follow.
"It's a shocking reality that one in three women worldwide will experience violence in their lives. It's an unacceptable truth that we must all work to change," the actress says. Reese Witherspoon urges everyone to buy and give this "Circle of Support" to help change the world. The cost is only $5, and 100% of the net profit--$3.71 each—will be donated to the Foundation. A symbol so powerful and so affordable could be around every woman's neck.
The Circle of Support necklace is only the latest Avon fund-raising product in an on-going campaign which has donated close to $40 million in funds to "end the epidemic of violence against women globally." Reese Witherspoon, with her polished look and professional status, is a perfect spokesperson for the cause.
