May is multiple sclerosis month, learn how Avril Lavigne is helping out and how you can too. Plus, enter to win her new fragrance!

Debuting her new fragrance, being a musician and dating Brody Jenner aren’t the only things keeping Avril Lavigne busy these days. She’s also joined the Board of Directors for the Nancy Davis Foundation. “Multiple Sclerosis is a devastating disease that primarily affects young women and I want to help raise awareness and find a cure,” Avril says. “That’s why this year I joined the Board of Directors and I’m encouraging others to get involved.”

The Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis is dedicated to the treatment and ultimate cure for MS. Funding research is the core focus of the Foundation and significant strides have been made to find the cause and cure of this debilitating disease. Avril is hoping that you’ll get involved too this month by logging on here and shopping for the ‘Orange You Happy to Erase MS’ initiative. “You can make a difference by purchasing a gift for yourself, a friend or your mom for Mother’s Day,” Avril says.

To thank all her fans for supporting this cause, Avril is giving away her fragrance, Black Star to five lucky HollywoodLife.com readers. “Black Star is my first fragrance and it’s all about being edgy, feminine and fun,” Avril says. “It encourages girls and women everywhere to express their style and to be their own stars.”

cont…

In addition, I want to try her latest scent because for one reason that as a follower of her reign, I patronize every product she endorses, from her Converse shoes, Dickies shirts and all those stuffs I bought during my highschool days. It was really fun and I felt a sense of fulfillment everytime I had acquired something that she uses. Even I am far from Canada where she originated, I still feel I am just near Avril when I have those stuffs. And hey, not to mention my wallpaper is Avril too! She is truly an inspiration. Now that I already graduated from college, I still keep myself updated. Now that her new fragrance is out in the market, can’t stop thinking of having one too! But it’s not yet for sale in our country. And I still hope and pray for blessings.

From the very beginning, when avril was not yet famous, I am already her avid fan. I fell inlove with her music, personality and charisma. I can say that we have commonalities. From a punk princess to a gorgeous musician. She is truly a multi-talented rockstar! My favorite song from all of her albums is My Happy Ending. It talks about a girl who did everything for her beloved man. But sadly, the man cheated and left her. It’s a great inspirational song for all the girls who were hurt before but despite the pain and feelings of loss, they still continue to live and grow, and finally move on. That’s the true spirit of a fighter! Women now are empowered. And Avril is just one of the few who practices girl power and independence. We salute you Avril Ramona Lavigne!

My favourite song by Avril Lavigne is Nobody’s Home. I want to smell like her because she is my idol and Black star gives an amazing shine to her personality. She has always proven herself as a very attractive person so i also want to be my own star like Avril! I want to reach for the stars just like her and tell the world that being ourselves is what all it takes and that is just what Avril has always told her fans.

(Black Star is not available in my country so i still don’t have it and i would really appreciate it if i get it)

I’m NOT an Avril fan by any means, but I feel a tad more endeared to her after reading this. My uncle suffers from MS, and it is a dehibilitating and heartbreaking disease. Kudos to her. Perhaps if more celebrities used their “power” for good, we would see cures for these devastating diseases.

Why not give away her new single who will be released this month as she said on radio, TV and in magazine interviews? Oooo, right it have been pushback as same with the record cause she rather f**k a douchebag loser and get wasted almost everynightat clubs instead of keeping what she promise her Fans and then not have the curage to tell them it´s delayed. She´s messed up and done!!!
