MyFight Fights Poverty In Third World Countries Via Microfinance Loans

MyFight was created by Jesse Murphy and Abram Hagstrom who met in 2009 and realized they shared a passion to want to effect real change in the world by fighting poverty, oppression and social injustice in Third World countries. They soon joined forces and launched MyFight.

"When you see injustice you can't turn from it," Murphy said. "When you meet a mother who tells you that the best hope she can give to her daughter is to give her to an orphanage, you can't accept that. When two boys, no older than 10, break out into a bloody fist fight for survival, you can't sit by and watch. It doesn't have to be this way. But we don't fight primarily because the problems are so bad, we fight because the solutions are so beautiful."

About MyFight    MyFight is a movement to abolish extreme poverty. When you buy T-shirts from MyFight, the nonprofit makes loans to impoverished families, which helps them escape the prison of poverty. One hundred percent of their profits are used to further the Fight.

About Adelante Foundation    Adelante is driven by the desire to see its clients achieve positive outcomes in their lives. Each decision that is made at Adelante is considered within the context of its mission, which is to improve the standard of living of women and their families in rural Honduras. Adelante has expanded tremendously since its creation, but the objective year to year never changes: help more Honduran women climb out of poverty.
