Lil Miss Charitable: Happy International Women's Day!

I just want to say 'Happy International Women's Day' to the readers of my blog :) In my previous blog post on this topic, I mentioned the 'Avon Empowerment Necklace'    which has just gone on sale. The £3.50 on the beautiful necklace will go to a great cause - Refuge and Women's aid - to help victims of domestic violence. 

Alesha Dixon is currently Avon's Global Ambassador:

Today Alesha Dixon, launched Avon’s Pass It On campaign and unveiled the new Empowerment Necklace with survivors, volunteers and top fundraising Avon Representatives at the 24 hour, Freephone National Domestic Violence Helpline.  

All proceeds from sales of the £3.50 necklace go directly to Avon UK’s charity partners Refuge and Women’s Aid; adding to the £1 million already donated in the UK and the $40 million awarded across the globe to fund life-saving domestic violence support services.

This is what Alesha had to say:

“It’s an unacceptable reality that one in four women in the UK will experience domestic violence in their lives - a reality we all must play our part to change. That’s why, as we celebrate International Women’s Day, I’m so proud to be speaking out against domestic violence and supporting Avon’s Pass It On campaign.”


If you want to donate to the cause, you can purchase the beautiful necklace from here.
