Today I received a very special email.  Breast Cancer is a cause very close to my heart, especially after watching my best friend battle this horrendous disease this year.  That is why I was extremely touched by the following email.  Gina Buss reached out to me, and asked me to help in her journey to raise money for Avon’s Breast Cancer Crusade in honor of her family member.  Here is her letter, and how we can all help.

"I have a family member with stage 4 breast cancer and I've realized just how important the funding of new and new medication is for women in her shoes. Sometimes the hope of a new cancer drug coming to the market is the only thing that keeps her fighting.

 So I've made it my personal mission to raise 12 grand in 2012 for breast cancer research, with funds being donated directly to Avon's Breast Cancer Crusade and Avon's Breast Cancer Walk.

I know that in the large scheme of things $12,000 may not seem like much, but since I'm a one woman show I think that's a good place to start.  My first mini-goal is to raise $500 by the end of February.

How this works:

  • you can purchase any Avon product through Avon's website and 10% of the purchase price will be donated to Avon's Breast Cancer Crusade (part of the Avon Foundation.)  
  • You can choose from a large variety of cosmetics, skin care, bath and body, men's care, hair care and much more.
  • You  can go to http://couponcode.avonrepresentative.com and click on "shop now" to begin browsing.
  • When you are ready to checkout, they can use coupon code FIRSTREP for free shipping. All orders are shipped directly to their door no matter where they are in the country.
  • Then 10% of that purchase will be donated to help the fight against breast cancer.

Every bit counts too – if they just want a lipstick that's ok!"
