Apparently Jon is impressed with Avon's charitable efforts -
“Avon, and the Avon Foundation for Women, have given support and a voice to those in need for decades,” says Jon Bon Jovi. “Their philosophy of empowerment sends a strong message and I’m pleased to partner with them.”
Jon's no slouch in that department himself, he is also Chairman of The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation. Since 2006, the Foundation has addressed issues that force families and individuals into economic despair and has built 330 units of affordable housing. The Foundation expanded in October 2011 with the opening of the JBJ Soul Kitchen, which serves nutritious, culinary dishes in a restaurant atmosphere to diners who contribute either volunteer hours or a minimum donation for their meals. The Soul Kitchen is housed in a renovated 1,100 square foot former auto-body shop in Red Bank, NJ.
Unplugged for Her is a floral oriental fragrance available in October 2012, and Unplugged for Him is a woody floral musk scent available in November 2012. Both will be sold exclusively through Avon Representatives in Canada.
I have to say though, I'm a little annoyed that Avon didn't ask me to help with the photo shoot... next time, right?!
