Make Up and Ice Cream...

I was talking to a friend of mine that is at business school and he laided a couple of fun facts out. That are silly. UNDP, the United Nations Development Programme reported that annual American spend about $8 billion in cosmetics and European spend about $11 billion in ice cream annually. That is a lot of money. But they also report that $6 billion would provide basic education for everyone. $9 billion would provide clean water and safe sewers for the entire world. So no more water born illness.

This seems to highlight a fundmental truth in our world... Make Up and Ice Cream make the world go round; not water and education.

Who knew??
