Avon – How to fight against breastcancer AND still make profit

On the occasion of my fifth time running the Avon Women’s Run in Berlin, I decided I needed to write about that event in which I have participated every time for the last five years.

Since it was an anniversary for me, I decided that I wanted to write about the walk and the company behind it.

But what about the poor ones among us? There has been a discussion going on about the advantages of the internet contributing to enlarging the gap between rich and poor instead of being the “great leveller”.

This is partly true, if we consider that only about 25% of the world’s population is connected to the World Wide Web. There is even a specific term referring to this state called “digital divide”. Continue reading
