Before I get started I want to thank all of you who are participating in Avon breast cancer walks this year. Avon is the #1 corporate contributor to breast cancer charities. To date Avon has funded over 14 million mammograms and opened 8 Avon Breast Imaging & Research Centers. Additionally, in 2004 Avon launched Speak Out Against Domestic Violence in response to epidemic levels of date rape and relationship based violence against women. The corporate commitment to these causes is unyielding. Thank you for your support.
Yup. AVON is kicking off the holiday season. Sure it's only October but December will be here soon enough and this way you will be ready without getting anxious about the delivery of your fiber optic light up Santa Claus. Sure it's CHEESY but Christmas isn't complete without a little cheese. There are:
- Interactive Talking Santas
- Fiber optic light up snowmen
- Winter scenes with skaters that change colors
- 3D advent calendars with spinning Santas on top
Need I say more? You can see all of these and more in action at www.avon.com/holiday. I think the Interactive Talking Santa and the light up Christmas scene are my favorites.
Yes we have makeup and skin care too.
In addition to the decorative items Avon has also started rolling out the holiday cosmetic packages and you can find the first round of them them on pages 44-63 of the eBrochure. On these pages you'll find makeup, foot care and fragrance packages for men and women. There are even little gift tags with lip gloss samples on them. Cute.
