Whole Planet Foundation
I donated to the Whole Planet Foundation today when I was checking out of Whole Foods Market. My small donation didn't add much to my bill, but it looks like our collective donations have made over $4 million in loans. Its amazing what we can do when we all add a bit.
Whole Planet Foundation, a private, nonprofit organization established by Whole Foods Market, provides grants to microfinance institutions in Latin America, Africa and Asia who in turn develop and offer microenterprise loan programs, training and other financial services to the self-employed poor.
