Thank you to the thousands of runners, volunteers and donors who raised lifesaving funds and awareness as part of the Avon Foundation Need For Speed Against Domestic Violence National Relay Series. From 2006 through 2008, more than $820,000 has been raised through relays across the country in effort to create a world in which violence is unacceptable. Through 2008, the Avon Foundation has awarded more than $10 million to 350 domestic violence organizations in the U.S. alone.
In 2009, domestic violence prevention and awareness remain a focal point of the Avon Foundation mission and we will embark on some new initiatives to advance our domestic violence and women’s empowerment efforts. Please visit the Avon Foundation web site to learn more about these programs and how you can take part.
Thank you for your continued support of the domestic violence cause.
