Blogging? On a Saturday?
Rudi’s Organic Bakery has partnered with Kiva, an organization who’s mission is to utilize the international connections of the web to “connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.” Kiva provides loans to individuals or communities throughout the world to help them grow their small businesses and create better lives for themselves, their families, and their neighborhoods.
Through the Seed. Sprout. Grow. campaign, Rudi’s is hoping to share the stories of twenty-five entrepreneurs throughout the world who are working to make changes for themselves and others.
To participate, all you have to do is visit Rudi’s Seed. Sprout. Grow. page on facebook and share one of the stories that you connect with most. For every story shared, Rudi’s will donate $5 to Kiva campaigns until they reach $25,000.
I chose Waldo, a Peruvian-American whose passion for cooking led him to open a restaurant in Texas, and who wants to use his business to better his community through scholarship programs and aid for cancer-ridden children and their families.
To encourage participation, Rudi’s has offered up an INCREDIBLE giveaway package for one of my readers. To help you live YOUR ‘best life’ the company is givng away a yoga, fitness, and nutrition collection that includes a Lucy giftcard, yoga mat and DVD, and Enjoy Life seed and nut mix.
Most of us are incredibly blessed and lucky that the phrase improving our lives means choosing healthy food to eat and exercising our minds and bodies…not finding a source of clean drinking water or enough food to feed our families.
Please take a second to share some of the stories through the Seed. Sprout. Grow. campaign.
