One by One across Europe

Sep 30, 2011

Europe has been a hotbed of activities for the Amway One by One campaign.

From races, to fashion shows, to playground building, our employees and distributors have been contributing time and money for children’s causes. Here are a few examples:

London, UK: Amway employees and distributors organized a fashion show at the Amway Experience Center to raise funds for a trauma center and outreach program for children in remote villages in Nepal.

Amsterdam, Netherlands: Amway sponsored the Dam tot Damloop run to raise funds for UNICEF to support schools in Mozambique. More than 75 Amway employees and distributors from six countries participated in the ten-mile run.

Moscow, Russia: Two Nutrilite running campaigns were held as part of the International Peace Marathon in Moscow where 1,000 Amway distributors participated to raise funds for the Equal in Sport project for children with disabilities.

Vienna, Austria: Amway helped raise money for Kinderkrebshilfe, which helps children with cancer, by supporting the Business Run in Vienna.

Bratislava, Slovakia: Amway supported the River Park Night Run, where 80 Amway distributors raised funds for UNICEF by participating in a nine-kilometer run.

Copenhagen, Denmark: With the support of Amway distributors, 14 Amway teams took part in an annual 5-kilometer relay race to raise money for Julemærkefond, a foundation that supports children in special schools.

Kiev, Ukraine: During an Amway road show held across the country, Amway volunteers built children’s playgrounds at seven regional hospitals, which will help more than 30,000 children.

Stockholm, Sweden: Amway challenged distributors to participate in the Bellman 5×5 km relay race, and 230 people rose to the challenge, raising money for the Red Cross to support relief work in the Horn of Africa.

Peiting, Germany: At this year‘s “Pfaffenwinkel Radrundfahrt” bike race, Amway participated with 200 bikers, which made Amway the largest group of participants. For every biker, Amway donated 25 Euros to Kunterbunt, which provides holiday parties and excursions for disabled children and teenagers.

Paris, France: Employees and distributors of Amway took part in the second “Heroes Race” to raise money for Theodora, an organization that brings clowns to children’s hospitals.

Milan, Italy: Amway supported the Milan Junior Camp to provide access for underprivileged children, and provided access to children with special needs from Russia to visit the AC Milan soccer team.

Krakow, Poland: Amway employees and distributors built a playground for children in partnership with government officials from Poland and the United States.
