Avon known as the 'brand for women' recently teamed up with LA Clipper basketball star, Chris Paul to give back to the community this past Thanksgiving by hosting a surprise charity event for the Challengers Boys & Girls Club of Los Angeles, CA.
The surprise charity event for a group of kids took place on Nov.26th with Chris Paul surprising the kids with a personal appearance and then by playing a round of basketball with them. This is the second time that LA Clipper Chris Paul has collaborated with Avon, with the first being the 'Untouchable' fragrance that was released earlier this year for Father's Day. When asked if he felt there would be future collaborations with Avon, the basketball star was optimistic since both he and Avon share the same feelings and thoughts on giving back to the community and this latest partnership was a great way to interact with the children of the community and thank Avon for the work that they do.
Avon known for their charitable contributions towards breast cancer and domestic violence is all about giving back and supporting the communities they represent as much as possible in as many ways as possible. According to Kelly Fallon, representative of Avon; 'Philanthropic and charitable giving is core to Avon’s mission and an important part of its ‘DNA.’ In addition to demonstrating this at a corporate level, the company also encourages its individual sales divisions to give back to their local communities – something they take very seriously. Whether supporting a local toy drive, providing supplies to a food drive or making a donation to a local cause, Avon continuously looks for opportunities to give back to the communities it operates in.'
