Whole Planet Foundation is delighted for partners to join our mission of alleviating poverty through microcredit, wherever they are! On average, microcredit loans are less than $200 and enable low-income entrepreneurs, mostly women, to create or expand their own microbusinesses to support their families. Whole Planet Foundation alleviates poverty in 78 countries in Africa, Asia and the Americas, including 20 cities in the United States.
Join more than 400 participants by signing up for Whole Planet Foundation’s Power Your Purpose Virtual 5K to run, walk, bike or move for microcredit in any way that suits you. 100% of registration fees for this online event will go to fund microlending programs through Whole Planet Foundation. All registered participants will have a chance to win a Cuisinart Air Fryer paired with a TRUFF Hot Sauce Variety Pack ($210 combined value).
Whole Planet Foundation’s Ten Thousand Dollar Fund members are Virtual 5K honorees and amplifiers of this online event. Special thanks to Divina, Evolve, Guayaki Yerba Mate, Mad Hippie, nuun, ORGANIC INDIA, TRUFF, Vital Farms and WTRMLN WTR.
Event sponsors make it possible for proceeds to benefit microcredit clients and engage participants with online discounts and a chance to win prizes via a sweepstakes on Whole Planet Foundation’s Facebook page. FlexPrint, a Flex Technology Group company, has been a proud silver sponsor of the Virtual 5K for the past two years, donating $50,000 to date. Lundberg is also a silver sponsor and donates $25,000 annually to support fund microloans through Whole Planet Foundation. Bronze Sponsors are PACT, The Seaweed Bath Co., Seemore Meats and Veggies, and Shoes For Crews. Medal Sponsor TRUFF generously shipped their Black Truffle Oil ($19.99 retail value) and Whole Planet Foundation finishers’ medals to the first 500 registrants. This outstanding team of supporters is alleviating poverty around the globe.
