This is the company that puts mascara on lashes and food on tables, that fights wrinkles with one hand and Breast Cancer with the other. That knows the value of a perfect lip, but still opens its mouth and speaks out against Domestic Violence and for women’s financial independence. This is the company that not only brings beauty to doors, but also opens them. The company that supports 6 million Representatives in over 100 countries. This is Avon. The company, that for 125 years, has stood for beauty, innovation, optimism and above all for women.

But according to others its a worthless,a worthless company that gives tremendously of it's profits.

Avon is a global company with a 120-year heritage. A worldwide leader in the sale of beauty products, Avon is also a standard-bearer in the global cause of women's health and economic growth.

The Avon Foundation
The Avon Foundation, an accredited 501(c)(3) public charity, was founded in 1955 to improve the lives of women and their families. The Avon Foundation brings this mission to life through two key areas of focus: breast cancer awareness and stopping domestic violence.

Breast Cancer Crusade
The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade launched in 1992, and Avon now supports breast cancer awareness programs in more than 50 countries. Through 2005, the Avon Breast Awareness Cancer Crusade raised and awarded more than $400,000,000 worldwide for access to care and finding a cure for breast cancer, with a focus on the medically underserved. Funding supports five areas: awareness and education; screening and diagnosis; access to treatment; support services; and scientific research. Beneficiaries range from leading cancer centers to community-based non-profit breast health programs, creating a powerful international network of research, medical, social service and community-based organizations focused on defeating breast cancer and ensuring access to care.

Domestic Violence
In its commitment to ending domestic violence, in 2004 the Avon Foundation launched the new Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program, which expands a long history of Avon grassroots support of the domestic violence cause. The Speak Out program supports awareness, education, direct services and prevention programs while developing new community outreach and support for victims. Global expansion has been initiated with the launch of Speak Out in Mexico. Since launching the new Speak Out program, more than $1 million has been awarded to domestic violence organizations across the U.S. The Foundation is partnering with Oscar®-nominated actress and producer/director Salma Hayek on the Speak Out program, which includes free educational materials, training programs, fundraising activities and public service announcements.

Special Projects
The Avon Foundation and Avon also respond quickly to national and international emergencies. Special pins sold by Avon Sales Representatives raised $7,000,000 for the Avon Heart of America Fund to support families, especially children, of those lost in the attacks of September 11, 2001. In 2003, the Avon Yellow Ribbon Pin raised $3,000,000 to assist families of servicemen and women lost or wounded in Operation Iraqi Freedom and other armed conflicts. In response to the December 2004 tsunami disaster in Asia, the Avon Foundation immediately awarded $550,000 to the relief efforts, and Avon launched the Heart of Asia pin in the U.S. and many other countries, bringing total funds to more than $1 million. In response to the hurricane disasters in fall 2005, Avon and the Avon Foundation made donations of cash and products, and launched the Heart of America Key Chain, which is sold by Avon Sales Representatives to raise funds for ongoing relief efforts.

but still according to others its a worthless company.

Pink ribbon fundraising products benefit the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade. The Crusade fundraising products are all affordably priced and return a range of 50% to 87% of the purchase price to the cause. The difference in the amounts donated to the breast cancer cause is due to the varied manufacturing costs of the items.

but still yet called a worthless company with cancer causing products.
