Heather, thank you for voicing your concerns for poverty sticken US citizens who are being ignored...women, children and men of all ages. We are unindated about helping every other country & are subsidizing many individuals who come here from Mexico, etc as illegals,...also the Filipinos, etc... who apply for SSI/SSD when they have NOT paid into the system. I don't mind helping other individuals but the US Govt. not closing the loop holes of scams is UNPATRIOTIC to US citizens.

I too think that for those of us who object to utilizing facebook for one reason or another, there should me another mechanism for entering this contest. A trip to India is a once in a lifetime opportunity and to limit this contest to only this medium is a disservice to those who are not on Facebook. In my recollection, this is the first time WFM has had a contest where their website or emailing has not been used for those who want to enter. I am not a member of Facebook and was not interested in becoming a member; however, I would like to have an opportunity to go to India.

I am inspired to hear others that are interested in preserving the interests in the United States. I just heard that a Southern state, I believe it is Alabama, is hoping to regulate illegals--because the federal government will not do it for them. I hope that other states will follow the example, afterall the quality of life that exists is due to the generations of United States citizens that had to work for it. I did decide to stop buying plastic bottles, after I saw the waste dump in the south west and heard about the layer of plastic on the ocean floor.

Whole Foods is paying all the administrative costs so that our donations go100% to the loans, and contibutes money and operates the foundation. Team members contribute through their paychecks. I personally fund one average loan a year. That small amount am, that I do not miss, really, goes a longer way in Brazil, or India or Kenya or Guatemala...I am very proud to work for a company that facilitates this effort, here, and around the world.

I agree. Hooray, for the people who won't, or don't, go on Face book, I/we have heard too many sad stories that started on Face book.

I too would like for Whole Foods to respect those customers who are not members of Facebook and are not willing to join. This is the first contest that has not utilized email or this website for those interested in entering their contest. Facebook is objectionable to some and Whole Foods should offer other options. I would love the opportunity to enter the contest, but without joining Facebook just to enter.

I'm off Facebook for Lent. I'd love to enter the contest, but without another mode of entry, I'm unable to participate. I appreciate that Facebook is a powerful engagement tool for lots of organizations. Other contests I've participated in have had an address to enter as an alternative to digital means. I understood this to be an inclusive strategy. Perhaps there's an opportunity to have an analog way to participate in the contest? This way Whole Foods can include participants who may not have access to Facebook? Thank you for your consideration.

Is there a way, other than on facebook, to enter this contest? I make frequent small donations at the Capitol Hill store, and I appreciate WF's efforts, but I refuse to use facebook. Please let me know!

Awesome Contest. It's powerful to see what an individual can create and then spread through to the masses on a larger scale. We are powerful beings.
