20% of all sales from March 18th – April 14th go to the APSFA. If you love Avon like I do, then now is a great time to make your purchase and donate to a good cause at the same time.
Founded in 2005, the APS Foundation of America, Inc. is the leading United States nonprofit health agency dedicated to bringing national awareness to Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome (APS), the major cause of multiple miscarriages, thrombosis, young strokes and heart attacks. The APSFA is a volunteer run, community based 501(c)3 non-profit Public Charity organization and is dedicated to fostering and facilitating joint efforts in the areas of education, support, public awareness, research and patient services. The APSFA’s Medical Advisory Team includes nationally & internationally recognized experts on Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome. For more info: http://www.apsfa.org
Many women (and men) take wonderful care of their families and think nothing of sacrificing to pamper others. But when it come to ourselves we often never get around to the same nice treatment.
So much of our life is spent working or managing day to day responsibilities. Often the technology in our life means that we are always plugged into more information about things to do or things happening in the world that are distressing.
Take Care of Your Body
We even abuse ourselves by working too long, not relaxing when our body says so, sitting at the computer for too many hours. Eventually we start to feel the pain of all of this abuse especially with chronic illness, like APS.
It’s time to stop that kind of thinking and realize that we can give ourselves all the pampering we need and want.
The first step to pampering is to take care of your body.
And who doesn’t love Avon??
I use the GLIMMERSTICKS Diamonds Eyeliner every day! I love the glitter in them and they don’t bother my sensitive skin and eyes.
I also have bought different fragrances in the past as well as their nail polish. One of my favorite nail polishes is a purple matte polish they had available early last year.
Did you know Avon sells more than just make-up and lotions? They have a lot of different items including seasonal decorations, clothing, shoes, handbags, fine and costume jewelry, and even items for children! They also have kitchen gadgets and other fun household things that I always drool over.
So, if you’re a fan of Avon and want to give to a good cause, please consider buying something during the APSFA’s Avon Pamper Yourself Party!!
Take some time for you for a change!
