Avon helps 'kiss goodbye to breast cancer'

September 15, 2003

Please help 'kiss goodbye to breast cancer'
during KISS & COMMIT WEEK, Monday 15th to Sunday 21st September

Celebrities give their kiss of approval - please help with your support Many celebrities have shown their support for this fantastic cause - please show yours by supporting Kiss & Commit Week, September 15th to 21st, when Avon Representatives will be out in force selling 'Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer' Lipsticks. For every lipstick sold, $1 will be donated towards crucial breast cancer research and education.

All funds raised will be donated to the Australian New Zealand Breast Cancer Trials Group for vital research and The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation providing nationwide community based breast health education programmes.

Professor John Forbes, Group Coordinator of the Australian New Zealand Breast Cancer Trials Group said: "With Avon's support, we were able to participate in the International Breast Cancer Intervention Study which has proved that some breast cancers can be prevented in healthy women at increased risk. Without the support of Avon Representatives and customers, this trial would have taken much longer to complete."

Helen Mawn, Manager - The New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation: "Avon's support has helped the Foundation take its breast health education programme to communities throughout New Zealand. Remember early detection can save your life."

Avon is the world's leading fundraiser for the breast cancer cause, with an enormous $4.5 million raised in Australia and New Zealand, and US$250 million raised worldwide. 'Kiss Goodbye to Breast Cancer' Lipsticks are packaged in an elegant pink case with a pink ribbon logo. They are priced at $9.95 each.

Thank you in advance for any support you might give. You will be helping save lives, and improving the quality of life for recovering breast cancer patients.
