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.”
