As we reported earlier, Reese Witherspoon was a special guest at the sixth annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer Washington, D.C. this weekend, cheering on and joining walkers on their second day and participating in the celebratory and inspirational Closing Ceremony. At the Ceremony, Reese joined the family, friends and supporters of 3,500 participants in celebrating $8.1 million raised for local, regional and national breast cancer organizations. The women and men in the weekend-long Avon Walk Washington, D.C. hailed from 40 states and included nearly 300 breast cancer survivors. Way to go Reese! I truly never get tired of reporting on these kinds of news, it’s so great to see someone in the industry giving back like this. And she looked uber cute! Check out the pics in the gallery we’ve started adding.
Reese said: “I am very excited to be partnering with the Avon Foundation and to help them continue to affect real change, I feel a great responsibility in my own life to give back to society. As the Honorary Chairman of the Avon Foundation, one of my first experiences last year was to meet Avon Walk walkers at a training walk in Los Angeles. Now I am proud to support the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer here in Washington, D.C. and hope my presence can in some measure express my deep appreciation for all the women and men who participate in the Avon Walks, and for all of the people who dedicate their lives to breast cancer research and care.”
They said: “During the past year, Reese has been a champion for the Avon Foundation’s commitment to women, and now she has lent her support to our Avon Walk participants in DC. We are excited that Reese has been able to meet in person the dedicated women and men who are raising funds, and the researchers and organizations that are using those funds to save lives.”
There is a report about the event here.

Idol Gives Back is a music celebration raising awareness and benefiting various U.S. and international charities. This year’s event will be bigger and more ambitious than ever, and will feature incredible international talent including Bono, Brad Pitt, Reese Witherspoon, Miley Cyrus, Mariah Carey, Eli Manning, Peyton Manning, Fergie, Chris Daughtry, Carrie Underwood, Annie Lennox, John Legend and Snoop Dogg. Additional artists scheduled to appear to be announced.
The star-studded evening will echo the success of last year’s Idol Gives Back, which raised over $76 million for various U.S. charities that deliver support to underprivileged children in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the country, providing them with medical care, food and grocery products, health and life skills and literacy programs, among other important initiatives. In Africa, funds were dedicated to organizations that support efforts to battle poverty through various health and education programs, including delivering medical supplies and providing clean water.
Yesterday Reese made an appearance on The Today Show, she was there to discuss her partnering with Avon and the new Women’s Empowerment Bracelet. A video download and captures have been added, as well as some snaps of her arriving outside the studio.

As announced yesterday, Reese has launched a global United Nations campaign to end violence against women. The actress kicked off the beauty company’s new partnership with the United Nations Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM) earlier today. Avon is selling Women’s Empowerment Bracelets online for $3 (£1.50) each to benefit UNIFEM.
“Every purchase of the bracelet will help empower women 100 per cent of the profits will go directly to the Avon Empowerment Fund to support UNIFEM in their work to end violence against women. I hope to see this bracelet on the wrists of women all around the world as a sign of solidarity and hope that one day every woman will be empowered and live a life free from violence.” – Reese Witherspoon
