Video | Weleda is #FundingHerFuture through Whole Planet Foundation

Mar 27, 2019 9:00 AM ET

Weleda is a second-year member of Whole Planet Foundation’s annual $50,000 Fund, alleviating global poverty through microcredit. Microloans are small loans – the current average first loan size supported by Whole Planet Foundation is $178 – with no formal collateral or contract, provided to the world’s poorest people – mostly women - to create or expand a business for the opportunity to pull themselves and their families out of poverty. 

Almost 100 years ago, Weleda was founded to connect people with nature, built upon a mission to make a difference in the world.  “As a brand that ethically sources ingredients from over 50 farming partnerships across the world, it’s only natural that Weleda is excited to participate in the mission to empower women to start or expand their own home-based businesses. This year Weleda is a proud partner of Whole Planet Foundation donating $50,000 to alleviate global poverty. We invite you to take a stand with Weleda and Whole Planet Foundation in planting seeds against poverty,” says the team from Weleda. Watch the video with Randi Jachino, VP of Marketing for Weleda North America.   

Whole Planet Foundation’s global impact has reached microentrepreneurs in the United States and 74 other countries thanks to supplier donors - like Weleda - who have contributed more than $12 million for poverty alleviation.  

During March, Weleda’s generosity is being spotlighted in Whole Planet Foundation’s Annual Prosperity Campaign, taking place in Whole Foods Market stores and online. Please join Weleda in alleviating poverty and make your donation today to #FundHerFuture.
