Megan Fox for Avon International Women's Day 2014

Tomorrow, March 8th, is International Women's Day. And if you're a woman reading this, Avon wants to say: you are awesome!

Seriously, that's their message—and they want you to share it. Visit avonawesome.com to tell the women in your life how awesome they are, and for every message shared, Avon will donate 10 cents to the Canadian Women's Foundation, up to a maximum of $25,000. The Canadian Women's Foundation is a non-profit organization that helps empower women and girls in Canada to escape violence and poverty.

Oh, and see that bracelet Megan Fox is wearing up there? She wants to tell you about it:

(It's available now on Avon.com and Avon.ca; 100 percent of net profits will be donated to the Speak Out Against Domestic Violence initiative to fund programs to end violence against women.)

Fergie has a message for you, too:

And in other news, Lancôme is doing something really exciting for International Women's Day this year!

In Canada, Lancôme will be offering a beautiful fresh rose to thousands of women in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal. Keep your eyes peeled for special Lancôme ambassadors at these key rose distribution locations:

Toronto :

  • Yonge & Dundas Square
  • Eaton Centre
  • Hudson’s Bay on Bloor Street
  • Sherway Gardens

Montréal :

  • La Baie d’Hudson in downtown Montréal
  • Les Galleries d’Anjou

Vancouver :

  • Pacific Centre
  • Oakridge Mall
  • Richmond Centre

But wait, there's more! Among the thousands of roses that will be distributed at Young & Dundas Square in Toronto, 20 of them will hold an exclusive invitation for a dinner event (with a female guest of choice), for the evening of March 8th. The winners and their guests—which could be mothers, friends, sisters or other inspiring women in their lives—will get to dine together on behalf of Lancôme at one of Toronto's top restaurants.

Good luck, and remember: you are awesome!
