Pledge To Be
We celebrate uniqueness
1 in 5 people in the UK identify as having a visible difference - a mark, scar or condition that affects their appearance. Yet more than half feel they are ignored by brands.
In 2019, we proudly became the first beauty company to represent more people with visible differences in our campaigns by partnering with Changing Faces. Through Pledge To Be Seen, we champion people with visible differences to celebrate the uniqueness that makes us beautiful.
Pledge To Be Seen
Changing Faces Ambassador and burns survivor Catrin Pugh became our first model with a visible difference in our Nudes campaign. Hear Catrin share why she believes brands should do more represent people with visible differences.
In 2020, we proudly raised more than £130,000 for Changing Faces through the launch of our Herstory fragrance which celebrated the stories of women with visible differences like Brenda Finn. Here what beauty means for her, and why this campaign meant so much.
The pandemic has had a profound effect on people with visible differences, and our charity partner Changing Faces. Burns survivor and star of our 60th Anniversary and Herstory campaign Tulsi Vagjiani shares what Avon’s support and Pledge means to her as an Ambassador and the impact on the charity.
