NORTH ANDOVER, Mass. (PRWEB) December 20, 2012
For more than 75 years, RESCUE® Remedy* has helped women and families around the globe stress less and stay calm. Today, the company announced it will donate $21,200 to Whole Planet Foundation, a Whole Foods Market® foundation, to help fund the nonprofit’s efforts to alleviate poverty through microcredit in developing communities around the world.
The donation is the result of RESCUE Remedy’s pledge to donate five percent of October product sales at Whole Foods Market locations nationwide to Whole Planet Foundation. The $21,200 is enough to create 131 new microloans that have the potential to support more than 700 people striving to lift themselves out of poverty. When a microcredit client repays their loan, the money is re-loaned to other borrowers in the same community, creating a cycle of support for entrepreneurial efforts for years to come. To date, Whole Planet Foundation has authorized $34 million and funded more than $22 million in microfinance programs in 54 countries, positively impacting more than 1.4 million people worldwide.
“RESCUE Remedy helps women around the world cope with day-to-day stresses. Our donation to Whole Planet Foundation is an exciting way for us to provide financial stress relief to entrepreneurial women who are fighting poverty and supporting themselves, their families and making a positive impact in their communities,” Katrina Eichenfeldt, Senior Brand Manager, RESCUE Remedy. “We are so pleased to make this donation to Whole Planet Foundation and support their efforts.”
“In the impoverished communities Whole Planet Foundation supports around the world, a loan as small as $200 can have a tremendous, lasting impact for borrowers – empowering them with a chance to change their own lives,” said Philip Sansone, president and executive director for Whole Planet Foundation. “RESCUE Remedy’s generous donation will help hundreds of women shape a brighter future for themselves and their families, and we’re so thankful for their support.”
