Press Release: Avon and Dress for Success

CNW Group Ltd

Avon shares the power of lipstick to help Canadian women make a fresh start

MONTREAL, June 14, 2018 /CNW/ – Imagine if a lipstick could boost self-esteem and offer a woman the confidence to achieve her potential. It can and it does. The origins of lipstick can be traced back to 3,500 B.C. and the product remains a staple in beauty routines to this day. Small but powerful, lipstick can change a person’s mood, give a boost in stressful situations and increase confidence.

This June, Avon Canada is inviting Customers to discover the power of lipstick by providing Canadian women seeking employment, the opportunity to make a fresh start. For every two Avon True Color Lipsticks purchased from Avon’s Campaign 14 and 15 Brochures (June 14 – July 18, 2018), the company will donate a full size lipstick to Dress for Success, a non-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence. Dress for Success provides a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.

“The empowerment of women is at the heart of what Avon and Dress for Success are all about. It makes for a perfect partnership,” said Kathryn Babcock, Director of Dress for Success Canada.

Every woman deserves to feel good about herself,” said Roberta Lacey, Director of Marketing for Avon Canada. “Sometimes, all it takes is a kind gesture from another woman. Knowing that you can make a difference simply by purchasing lipstick is a wonderful way to shop and share. This is an incredible opportunity for Canadian women to rally together to empower others. “

Avon’s goal is to put a True Color Lipstick in the hands of every woman benefitting from Dress for Success services this year. True Color Lipstick is available in 70 shades and offered in three formulas: matte, bold or nourishing. While True Color Lipstick regularly sells for 10.00, Avon will offer the lipsticks at a special price of 2 for 9.99 for the duration of the campaign. The offer is available for a limited-time through Avon Independent Sales Representatives or at www.avon.ca.
