updated 12/28/09 awpfcalendar3 The New Year is fast approaching and you don’t want to get caught with a calendar that is “so last year” still hanging on your wall. Here to help is the third annual edition of the Whole Planet Foundation calendar featuring beautiful photographs of inspiring entrepreneurs from Peru, Bolivia, India, Haiti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Guatemala, Thailand, Nepal, Indonesia, the United States and East Timor. This isn't your run-of-the-mill calendar! This one not only helps you keep track of your busy life but also helps you save on your favorite products with over $30 in coupons and ALL PROCEEDS from the sale of these calendars benefit Whole Planet Foundation microcredit clients. All that for $2. Seriously, $2. awpfcalendar1Last year, our shoppers purchased $72,000 in calendars and empowered 1,775 poor women and their family members with microloans to create or expand a home-based business and create prosperity. These women live in communities where the products you purchase at Whole Foods Market are sourced. We're hoping to raise a bit more this year so we can empower 2,000 more women with an opportunity to change their own lives and lift themselves out of poverty. And if that wasn't incentive enough, our vendor partners came through with some great coupons to sweeten the deal. awpfcalendar2 $3 off from New Chapter, $3 off Seventh Generation, $2 off GoodBelly, $1 off Ben & Jerry's, $1 off Nature's Path, $1 off Muir Glen, $1 off Whole Trade Guarantee Vegan Sugar, just to name a few. You can see the whole coupon list for more incentive. Pick up your copy (or two or three!) of the Whole Planet Foundation 2010 Calendar in your local U.S. Whole Foods Market store through January. Thanks for your help in making this a happy New Year... in more ways than one.

Everyone loves the deals! Thanks for this posting. I would like to search the coupons each time before my shopping, I think coupons are more important than ever to people trying to save money.

I would like to contribute to the cause; plus, when I visit my daughter in Northern NJ were there is a Whole Fooods Market, I can use the cooupons. PLEASE, is there an address I cansubmit a request for a calendar? Thanks

I really appreciate this posting! I am excited to pick up my own calender at the next Whole Foods Market I see! I have a friend who has done her anthropological field work with women who sell goods at markets in Mexico. I know some of these women have received assistance from your organization. Without things like the microcredit loans, these women would be struggling to survive. I hope you can raise even more money this year to help out these extraordinary people!

I also live in an area far from a Whole Foods but am very interested in supporting your goal by purchasing a calendar. Is there a way that I can purchase one online or through the mail? Thank you so much!

If you'd like to make a direct donation to the Whole Planet Foundation, you can do so by going to their website: http://wholeplanetfoundation.org/. If you'd like a calendar, I can get in touch with the coordinators to ship one to you. Thanks!

I am trying to purchase one of your calendars, but both of the Whole Foods that I shop at are sold out. One of the stores thought they may get some more in, but I checked back with them today and they said they would not be getting any more in. I would greatly appreciate it if you could locate one for me. Thank you for your help. Sue
