POULSBO — Local organizations and schools can raise funds with AVON’s products through the AVON Foundation for Women (www.avonfoundation.org).
The foundation was established in 1955. According to AVON, the foundation has raised more than $860 million in more than 50 countries for breast cancer research and efforts to reduce domestic and gender violence.
With AVON, local groups can host fundraisers to raise money for causes that are important to them with AVON’s most popular products.
“Since the 1990s, I’ve noticed that more limitations are being placed on fundraising efforts,” said Maria Marsala, AVON sales representative in Poulsbo. “In my area, there are fewer car washes because they can negatively impact the environment. I have seen most long-standing fundraising efforts become extinct because it is arguably no longer safe to send children door-to-door.”
With AVON fundraisers, there’s minimal paperwork to complete, no need to buy merchandise up front, door-to-door selling is not required, and the potential of funds raised is up to 40 percent of the orders received.
Additionally, AVON donates $4 of every $10 sale to the USO.
