So by now you probably know about my online AVON store.
And how I’m an Independent Sales Rep.
I also happen to be a big fan of AVON merchandise.
Have been since I was a little girl.
Before makeup was at all important to me.
There are some fabulous deals all over AVON.
And many opportunities for free shipping.
(If you want to receive these notifications via email, let me know!)
Who doesn’t want to shop from home?
And answer the door to your AVON order?
But there’s an even more meaningful reason for me to purchase from AVON.
AVON is one of the biggest supporters of the search for a cure.
They have breast cancer merchandise and send around 75% of proceeds to support this cause.
Reps do not profit from these purchases.
What a great gift.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Look for ways to fund this cause.
And help those women in your life (and yourself) learn about prevention and diagnosis and cures.
My mom is celebrating her 11th year breast cancer free.
As a 12 year old, “cancer” was the scariest word that could come from a doctor’s mouth.
I thought my 43 year old mother was going to die.
I really did.
I cried for hours and hours.
Gut wrenching sobs.
But I soon learned that they had caught this early enough.
She went through with a full mastectomy.
Didn’t have to endure radiation or chemo.
It was a long road.
I had to grow up fast.
Taking care of dinners. Cleaning. Housework. Schoolwork.
And the worst moments were after the initial biopsy.
I had to support her as she got sick.
And clean up after she vomitted.
Well, I didn’t have to.
But I couldn’t bear not too.
She had been there for me over and over and over again.
And never complained.
I loved my mom.
Correction: I love my mom.
With a different sort of love, I love these AVON products.
love this new AVON breast cancer crusade tote. seriously.
And 100% of net profits go to this crusade. crazy awesome.
There’s some great clothing items.
