Whole Foods Supports Grameen America with 5% Community Giving Day
Last Thursday, March 31, Grameen America was lucky enough to be chosen for a second time as the beneficiary of Whole Foods 5% Community Giving Day. For the entire day, 5% of all profits from Whole Foods NYC stores went to benefit impoverished American entrepreneurs who are working towards a better life with the help of microloans from Grameen America. Each of the six NYC Whole Foods store locations participated. The Community Giving Day was a complete success, not just from a fund raising standpoint (we raised over $50,000!!!) but for raising awareness as well.
Thank you, Whole Foods for this wonderful opportunity and for your continued support!
