More about our philanthropy:
Avon’s Avon Breast Cancer Crusade
The Avon Breast Cancer Crusade was launched in 1992 as a small pioneering program in the U.K. Avon in the U.S. adopted the Crusade the following year. Over the last 18 years, Avon philanthropy has raised and donated more than $700 million to breast cancer programs around the world, supporting cutting-edge research to find a cure for or prevent breast cancer as well as programs that enable all patients to access quality care.
Funding supports awareness and education: screening and diagnosis; access to treatment; support services; and scientific research. Beneficiaries of the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade range from leading cancer research and clinical centers to community-based, non-profit breast health education programs.
A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US:
alpha Kappa Delta Phi is currently the largest, fastest-growing and ONLY INTERNATIONAL Asian-interest sorority in the nation. Established at the University of California, Berkeley in 1990, we have since then grown into 48 chapters internationally with more than 5,000 sisters coast to coast, creating an experience of sisterhood you won’t find anywhere else!
• The purpose of aKDPhi is to promote sisterhood, scholarship, leadership, and Asian awareness in the University and community. We dedicate our time to worthy causes such as our national philanthropy — Breast Cancer Awareness. We serve not only for the betterment of ourselves, but seek to contribute to the community as a whole. Academic achievements are one of the most important goals of the sorority and the sisters constantly motivate one another. The ladies of aKDPhi work hard to improve ourselves and our society while strengthening the bonds of sisterhood that exist between each of us.
