Reuters has published a new article on Reese Witherspoon’s Avon involvement, which gives us a bit more insight on her role. I also updated the gallery with 70+ additional pictures from the press conference. 🙂

Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon heeded Avon’s call on Wednesday to become the giant direct-sale cosmetics company’s first ever “Global Ambassador.”

Her duties include acting as a spokeswoman for Avon’s cosmetics and its army of sales representatives whose slogan is “Avon Calling”. She will also be the honorary chairwoman of the Avon Foundation that focuses on such issues as breast cancer and domestic abuse.

“As a woman and a mother I care deeply about the well being of other women and children throughout the world and through the years, I have always looked for opportunities to make a difference,” said Witherspoon.

In a brief interview with Reuters after her news conference, she said she got involved because Avon has a real interest in helping women across the world. “I tried to do the best with balancing work and family. My children are the biggest priority in my life,” said the actress.

Witherspoon, who won the 2005 Oscar for best actress for her portrayal of June Carter Cash in Walk the Line, signed a multi-year agreement, but her compensation was not disclosed.

In addition to her other duties, Witherspoon will also be involved in product development initiatives, and appear globally in Avon advertising, web sites and in the company’s brochures.

Ms. Witherspoon has been named the first ever Avon Global Ambassador at a ceremony in Los Angeles. The actress will serve as the Honorary Chairman of the Avon Foundation, focusing on breast cancer, domestic violence and emergency relief initiatives. The role also means she will be the spokeswoman for Avon’s beauty brands. Reese was sworn in at a press conference at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Wednesday.

May 12, 2006   •  Category: CharityComments Off on Garner & Witherspoon: In Their Own Words

In accepting an invitation to tour the still-devastated areas of New Orleans, Reese Witherspoon, Jennifer Garner and about 30 other Hollywood women – actors, directors, musicians, activists and philanthropists – received a heartbreaking first-hand look at the ongoing struggles in the area, more than seven months after Hurricane Katrina hit. The recent trip, sponsored by the Children’s Defense Fund and organized by founder Marion Wright Edelman, focused on the ravaged Lower Ninth Ward, the New Freedom School and a makeshift hospital. Here are some of their accounts.

Jennifer Garner
The night before the trip, Garner rocked 5-month-old Violet to sleep before leaving her with husband Ben Affleck. It was her first time away from her first child.

“I didn’t want to leave her, but I thought to myself, ‘People in New Orleans love their children as much as I love mine and I might be able to help there,’ ‘ she says “I’m talking to my husband all day long to see how our baby is. Our children are brought into privilege, but you know that this kind of catastrophe could happen anywhere.”

Garner, 32, listened as single dad Douglass Chambers spoke at the New Freedom School about how his son, Douglass junior, 11, was falling behind in his studies since the storm. “He told about going from teacher to teacher and to counselors,” she says. “He was not going to leave any stone unturned to help his child.”

"It took me years to be the woman my mother raised. It took me 4 years, 7 months and 3 days to do it, without her. After I lost myself in the wilderness of my grief, I found my own way out of the woods."
