Shoppers can make a difference in the lives of microentrepreneurs around the world by picking up a 2015 Whole Planet Foundation calendar at Whole Foods Market (Nasdaq: WFM) stores in the U.S.
Each calendar helps fund microlending projects for poverty alleviation across Latin America, Asia, Africa and the U.S.
It costs $3.50 and includes more than $35 worth of coupons for natural and organic products. The calendar also features photos of microcredit clients from 13 of the 61 countries where the Whole Planet Foundation alleviates poverty.
Since 2006, calendar sales have generated $830,000 for the foundation, empowering more than 4,500 people with loans and the opportunity to start or expand their home-based businesses and the chance to lift themselves out of poverty.
The foundation aims to raise an additional $245,000 through 2015 calendar sales.
