mark m.powerment Domestic Violence Awareness Month

As you all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is why I have been posting about beauty and fashion that benefits breast cancer research and charities for the past few weeks via the 365 Beauty Guide: Get Beautiful with Breast Cancer Awareness! and 365 Style Guide: Runway Relief Edition features. What you may not know is that October also doubles as Domestic Violence Awareness Month; which, like Breast Cancer Awareness, is a very important cause, and one that mark targets through their m.powerment philanthropic initiative.

mark m.powerment Lipclick Luxe Lipstick and Mirror Compact Gift Set ($24.00)
mark Power of Change Necklace ($28.00)
mark Linked to My Heart Bracelet ($30.00)
mark Have a Heart Necklace ($22.00)

Through m.powerment, 100% of the net proceeds of the aforementioned items are used to raise funds (and awareness!) about dating abuse and domestic violence. For 2012, however, the mark m.powerment campaign is taking things a step further - using Pinterest to assist in their quest to raise funds and awareness for Domestic Violence Awareness Month.

“Since its beginning in 2008, m.powerment by mark has raised more than $1 million to help the fight against dating abuse and partner violence. With its sparkling mirror and special lipclick shade, our new m.powerment gift set is the most beautiful way yet that you can help us support this very important cause.”
—Ashley Greene, mark. Brand Ambassador

Now (actually beginning last week - October 8, 2012) through November 8, 2012, "Each time someone repins from the mark. girl pintervention Pinterest board...Avon Products, Inc will donate $1 (up to $10,000) to The Avon Foundation for Women to fund the m.powerment by mark. program *—dedicated to breaking the cycle of dating abuse and partner violence." Use the hashtags #pintervention or #mpowerment to spread the word.

“Join me in supporting m.powerment by mark. and in spreading its very important message, that dating abuse and partner violence are never acceptable.”

Wow, another fantastic cause, thanks for sharing the info Erika. My Mum runs a charity to help victims of domestic abuse, so I know a bit about how many people are affected by it and how important campaigns like this are.
