Fairtrade Fortnight is coming - 23 February - 8 March 2015!
For Fairtrade Fortnight 2015, we’re going to celebrate the impact of Fairtrade and ask you to turn a spotlight on the producers who grow the products we love. By sharing their stories in a fresh and compelling way, we can remind the whole country of the dramatic difference choosing Fairtrade makes and how much it is still needed.
Please do whatever you can to support fair trade. It's really important.
Another way that you can support and change the lives of families one at a time is
to participate in the KIVA program. Haven't heard of it before?
How Kiva Works
How to Use Kiva
1. Choose a borrower
Read through hundreds of borrower stories of people looking for loans to grow businesses, go to school, switch to clean energy and more. Find someone who connects with you.
2. Make a loan
Click 'Lend' to make a loan to the borrower of your choice. All Kiva loans are disbursed by our Field Partners who vet and work closely with each borrower.
3. Get repaid
Get updates as the borrowers you support succeed and repay their loans. You'll see these dollars return to your Kiva account.
When borrowers repay, you can use that money to empower another person by supporting a new loan!
You can also choose to donate the money to Kiva or withdraw it.
This is a wonderful program that empowers people to be able to take their lives to the next level and in turn their families, and in turn their communities. Everybody benefits from this wonderful program. Please do consider participating in this life-altering program.
