Women of Worth 2008 National Honoree, Cindy Kerr and L’Oréal
Paris, President Karen Fondu.

The Women of Worth initiative, which honors and awards women from across the country for their inspiring volunteer achievements and outstanding commitment to community service, was created to bring the L’Oréal Paris iconic brand philosophy, “Because I’m Worth It,” to life and furthers L’Oréal Paris’ ongoing commitment to female empowerment.

A Woman of Worth is an inspiring volunteer, a confident woman who is dedicated to making a difference in the lives of others and embodies the heart and spirit of the L’Oréal Paris brand. This year, 10 Women of Worth honorees will receive $5,000 for their charitable causes and a matching donation will be made on their behalf to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, L’Oréal’s charitable partner since 1997. These 10 honorees will join an exceptional community of 30 previous Women of Worth honorees who have dedicated themselves to serving others in their community.

Additionally, one National Honoree will receive an additional $25,000 donation to her cherished nonprofit organization. The Women of Worth National Honoree will be chosen via a public online vote held this fall at womenofworth.com.

“We at L’Oréal Paris are honored and delighted to be celebrating the achievements of real women whose incredible volunteer work has made a significant difference in their communities,” said Karen Fondu, President, L’Oréal Paris. “They have seen the obstacles that are facing so many during these challenging times and have empowered themselves and others to make a positive impact. By harnessing the power of service these incredible women are helping us all to achieve our common goals.”
