Around the world, at least one in three women has been abused—most often by a member of her own family. Shocking, isn’t it?
On International Women’s Day, I want to encourage you to take even the smallest step to put a stop to it. Last week, I was honored to attend the 2nd World Conference of Women’s Shelters in Washington, D.C. There actress Reese Witherspoon, who’s the honorary chairman of the Avon Foundation for Women, introduced Avon’s newest Empowerment product: the Circle of Support necklace ($5, avon.com). The circle is comprised of infinity symbols that represent the unlimited potential of women everywhere. More importantly, 100 percent of its net profits will be donated to the Avon Foundation for programs dedicated to ending violence against women.
So spare a few dollars, won’t you? Together we can make the world a safer place.

If you read our latest interview with Justin Bieber, you read about his support for Pencils of Promise (PoP).
Pencils of Promise is a non-profit organization that partners with local communities to build sustainable schools and provide educational tools to children in developing countries.
PoP’s mission started when the founder (Adam Braun) asked a child on the streets of India what he wanted most in the world. The child’s answer, “A pencil.” Since then, PoP has made it a mission to provide children when pencils and pens to help them on the road to education.
So far, PoP has focused on building schools in Laos and Nicaragua, with 15 schools already built, 8 schools currently being built, and 4 upcoming schools.
You can visit Pencils of Promise to volunteer for building missions, create a fundraiser, and donate money through the purchase of PoP gifts such as (seen in the photo on the right) a tag necklace created by FAWN by Jennifer Fisher Jewelry.
