LOVE IS ON Million Dollar Challenge
, the company’s women’s
health philanthropic platform, goes live today. The Challenge features
more than 100 charities – organizations of all sizes dedicated to
women’s cancer, heart disease and diabetes – competing to raise funds
online. The charity that generates the most contributions will be
eligible to receive an additional $1 million donation from Revlon, with
the runner-up to receive $250,000. Additionally, a total of $150,000
will be distributed through weekly ‘bonus challenges’ over the course of
the six-week competition.

Said Lorenzo Delpani, CEO of Revlon: “Love drives all that we are
passionate about, including the urgent need to support women’s health.
It’s only by joining together that can we be most effective in tackling
the serious health issues facing women today. That is why our Challenge,
which inspires everyone to give, is so exciting. For us, it’s about
leveraging the power of community – and love – to make the
biggest impact possible.”

Longtime Revlon Global Brand Ambassador Halle Berry shared, “I joined
Revlon almost 20 years ago and their passion and commitment to bettering
women’s lives has never wavered. They have always been, and continue to
be, a devoted champion for women’s health.”

The Challenge represents a series of firsts – it is the first time a
cosmetic brand is the sole host of a fundraising competition on
fundraising platform CrowdRise, and also the biggest challenge award in
CrowdRise’s history.

“Philanthropy is the heart and soul of Revlon,” said Ronald O. Perelman,
Chairman of Revlon. “This Challenge marks an exciting new model of
fundraising for these important organizations, and allows us to have a
bigger effect on the leading health issues facing women today.”

Revlon Global Brand Ambassador Olivia Wilde voiced her passionate
support for the Challenge with a special call-to-action message that
urges people to embrace the spirit of LOVE IS ON by contributing to the
competition. (
