Reese Witherspoon is all set for a low-key Mother’s Day this weekend.
She’ll be lunching with her mom, Betty Reese, and kids, Ava, 8, and Deacon, 4. But as a paparazzi target, the Oscar winner knows she can’t count on a disruption-free holiday, even though she’s careful not to reveal a single specific detail about their plans — not even the state.
Despite that obvious drawback of fame, she still sees some pluses — and so do her kids. They have “always kind of known me to be who I was, and if people know Mom at the grocery store, I think they kind of like it,” says Witherspoon, 32. “Obviously, if you’re not having the greatest day, it’s not always easy, but for the most part, (fame) brings a lot of positive things into our life.”
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.”
Reese Witherspoon along with other celebrity participants is scheduled to appear on the American Idol Fundraiser Special Idol Gives Back on Wednesday, April 9 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. Thanks to Elizabeth for the news!
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 we just mentioned in the previous update, Avon is selling Women’s Empowerment Bracelets online for $3 (£1.50) each. All 100% of the net proceeds are donated to the Avon Empowerment Fund to end violence against women. At least one in three women have been abused around the world.

The very first Avon ‘ad’ that has been released is for in fact promotion for this bracelet, check out the stunning image in the gallery!
“As honorary chair of the Avon Foundation, I’m very excited to introduce Avon’s first global charity product designed to save and improve women’s lives worldwide.
Purchase the Women’s Empowerment Bracelet for yourself and your friends. It’s a symbol of unity that represents a future without limitations for all women. It represents everything I love about this company.
Show your support, show your solidarity, show off your bracelet.”
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

B-ROLL: Interviews with Reese Witherspoon, Suze Orman, Andrea Jung (Avon Products, Inc. Chairman and CEO) and Joanne Sandler (UNIFEM Executive Director a.i.), Reese Witherspoon Empowerment Bracelet announcement, Andrea Jung announcement of the Empowerment Fund, and additional highlights.
Reese Witherspoon, among many other celebrities (including Walk the Line co-star Joaquin Phoenix), is involved in a broadcast public service announcement (PSA), calling attention to the need for affordable, quality health care for all Americans.
Hollywood’s leading nonprofit organizations, the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF) and the Motion Picture & Television Fund (MPTF), have joined the “Divided We Fail” national movement led by AARP to bring attention to the domestic issues that worry Americans most: health care and financial security. Launching today, this unprecedented three-year collaboration between the entertainment world and the nation’s largest advocacy group seeks bipartisan cooperation in finding solutions.
“We are thrilled to have EIF and MPTF join us,” said Bill Novelli, CEO of AARP. “This nation’s health care and financial security crisis is about to explode: 47 million Americans have no health insurance, and more middle-class people are filing for bankruptcy because of health care-related expenses than for any other reason. We need to build a national conversation around these issues, and the entertainment industry is uniquely suited to help us do that,” he said. “We must get everyone — individuals, companies, and policymakers — involved, regardless of their political persuasion. Only then will we be able to address these very serious challenges successfully.”
