Reese Witherspoon Releases Necklace For International Women's Day

Buzz, Self

The actress has teamed up with Avon to create a $5 necklace to help end domestic violence.

Although some Hollywood celebrities can come across as vapid and self-obsessed (cough, Kim Kardashian and her closet of shoes), not so with Reese Witherspoon, who—when not starring in rom-coms and doting on her two kids—serves as a global ambassador for Avon and as Honorary Chairman of the Avon Foundation for Women. Reese Witherspoon Invited Prince William And Kate To Her Wedding

In fact, in honor of International Women's Day, the 35-year-old actress teamed up with Avon to release a special fundraising necklace. The proceeds will support the Avon Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program that raises awareness and is fighting (no pun intended) to end domestic violence against women worldwide. 

"I'm proud to support the Avon Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program and I encourage everyone to purchase, wear or give the Avon Empowerment Necklace to help raise awareness as well as vital money for domestic abuse support services," Reese said in a statement.
