Help Us Raise Awareness For Breast Cancer



Today, we're launching a donation campaign to generate awareness for the upcoming AVON WALK FOR BREAST CANCER in Santa Barbara on September 7-8.
For every new person who "likes" our page between today and September 7-8th, Cheshire Cat will donate $1 to the Avon Foundation. We're starting this challenge with 459 fans on Facebook, so any “likes” above and beyond that number will translate to donation dollars.

The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer is a national series of 39-mile weekend fundraising events launched in 2003 by the Avon Foundation.

The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer event series is a project of the Avon Foundation for Women and is not affiliated with any other breast cancer organizations or programs such as Susan G. Komen for the Cure, American Cancer Society, or Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

The Avon Foundation for Women has implemented a sophisticated and comprehensive need-based philanthropic strategy that addresses every facet of the disease. Recognizing the complexity of the problem of breast cancer among all groups of women, and men, the Avon Foundation supports a national network of more than 200 research, medical, social service and community-based organizations annually, each of which is making a unique contribution to helping patients or advancing breast cancer research.

A majority of the net proceeds raised through the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer will stay with breast cancer programs in the geographic areas where the Walks are held. Periodic community meetings are convened in all Walk cities to secure local feedback on community needs and priorities. A detailed listing of benefiting organizations can be found at http://www.avonfoundation.org.
