'Heart of Asia Pin' Created

'Heart of Asia Pin' Created to Help Fund Tsunami Recovery & Rebuilding Efforts


All proceeds will go to the Red Cross Tsunami Appeal

All New Zealanders have been deeply touched and moved by this unprecedented tragedy. In response, Avon has made an immediate corporate contribution of $750,000 to the Tsunami Appeal towards the recovery and rebuilding efforts in the region. But we want to do more.

Aid workers are working frantically to help the millions of displaced and grief-stricken people whose lives have been transformed beyond imagination. Their efforts have only just begun.

Help for now. Hope for the future. Just as Avon Representatives in New Zealand have generously supported the breast cancer cause through the sale of specially designed Pink Ribbon products, so they are getting behind this cause by selling the Heart of Asia Pin for $3.99 each, without any profit or commission.

Avon Representatives will deliver leaflets advertising the pin to millions of homes around the country. Avon would like to thank Offset Alpine, Australian Paper and Spicers Paper for donating the printing and paper costs.

Readers who would like to buy the Heart of Asia Pin, but who don’t have an Avon Representative, can purchase one by visiting or calling 0800 232 889. All proceeds will be donated to the New Zealand Red Cross Tsunami Appeal.
