Despite being a fairly young company, it has been confirmed that Glossier, headed by Emily Weiss, is now reportedly at a $1 billion valuation! Aside from that, the millennial pink pouched giant also received $100 million in funding from Sequoia Capital, a firm that has previously funded top brands like Charlotte Tilbury, Apple, and Paypal.

Love takes a stand
There’s nothing more inspiring than when a company takes a stand on an issue that truly matters. AVON Philippines has been advocating for the end of violence against women and girls, and this year, the cosmetics and retail giant renews their promise. Stand4Her is a global plan that aims to help 100 million women advance their earnings, push for their freedom of expression, and the right to live safe and healthy lives.
AVON has also tapped celebrity Ruffa Gutierrez along with her daughters Lorin and Venice to help shed light on the different forms of abuse through their personal experiences. With this initiative, AVON hopes to help women (and men) realize just how important it is to never tolerate or accept abusive behavior.
In line with this, AVON has released a limited edition “Free as a Butterfly” jewelry set (P299) to help fund partner NGOs that support women’s rights. With every set sold, P50 will go to an NGO to help aid more Filipinas around the country. You can shop the gorgeous jewelry set from any AVON representative or online here. Take a stand, spread the love, and lend a hand.
