Speak Out Against Domestic Violence with Avon

Everyone has experienced domestic violence one way or another, whether it's a harsh comment or an actual physical torment. Domestic violence is something that shouldn't be ignored and yet most of us would choose to turn the other cheek than help out or speak out against it.

Avon, the company for Women, makes it a bit easier for us to speak out against domestic violence. Recently, they released the Empowerment Circle of Support Necklace which is features a string of infinity symbols connected to each other. Each symbol represents a woman’s potential to live a full and decent life because she is free from the chains of domestic violence. The necklace also represents a promise of love and support, symbolizing a commitment to one’s self and to loved ones to help end domestic violence now.

For every purchase of the necklace worth P199, P20 will go to Avon’s Speak Out Fund. This fund is used to support partner non-government organizations (NGOs)—Women’s Crisis Center in Manila, Gender Watch Against Domestic Violence (G-Wave) in Dumaguete, IMA Foundation in Pampanga, and Legal Center for Women and Children (LUNA) in Davao—as they maintain hotline numbers that victims and other concerned individuals can reach out to.

Aside from the necklace, the public is also encouraged to join the cause by purchasing Avon’s Moisture Blend Giftable Hand & Body Lotion, from which P5 will be earmarked for the same partner NGOs and initiatives.

Remember, abuse only stops when the public gathers the courage to Speak Out — and with Avon, everyone is empowered to make their voices count and be part of the change that can help save lives and families. This year’s Avon Speak Out Against Domestic Violence campaign aims to involve the youth as they share their creative ideas in coming up with public service ads that will help encourage more people to take on the cause.
