Whole Planet Foundation funds poverty alleviation through grants to microfinance institutions in the U.S. and 54 countries. The foundation funds small loans that empower impoverished individuals with a chance to start a business.

To raise money for Whole Planet Foundation's 2013 Prosperity Campaign, starting on March 1, Weleda will hold a Daily Giveaway at usa.Weleda.com/DailyGiveaway, educating consumers on product benefits, natural ingredients and its fair-trade partnerships.  During March, consumers will have the chance to enter and win a variety of Weleda products daily. For each giveaway entry submitted, Weleda will contribute $1 to Whole Planet Foundation.

"We are honored to help raise funds for Whole Planet Foundation," said Jasper van Brakel, CEO of Weleda North America. "Weleda and Whole Foods Market believe in supporting and educating consumers on natural health and beauty for future generations to come." 

"A loan as small as $200 can spark change for an underprivileged entrepreneur, providing the means to secure an income," said Philip Sansone, president and executive director, Whole Planet Foundation. "We're grateful to Weleda for their support and for inspiring their fans to join the cause."

Weleda hopes to raise at least $10,000 to benefit Whole Planet Foundation, which has disbursed more than $22 million worldwide to date, giving 1.5 million people a chance for a better life.
