I first tried GoodBelly probiotic drinks a few months ago, when I was asked if I wanted to take part in their 12-day challenge. I had never tried a probiotic drink or supplement before, but I ended up really liking their products. Not only did I feel like my digestion improved, but they tasted great too.
GoodBelly has a solid line of juice drinks, and I was happy to learn that they’ve recently partnered with the Whole Planet Foundation. If you’re not already familiar with this organization, it’s a nonprofit founded by Whole Foods Market. From now through July 31st, GoodBelly will be donating five cents from qualifying products sold at Whole Foods locations nationwide to the Whole Planet Foundation.
In 2005, natural and organic retailer Whole Foods Market established Whole Planet Foundation as an expansion of its mission to be an active participant in the global community. The nonprofit provides grants to microfinance institutions in poor communities where the grocer sources products. GoodBelly’s contribution will help fund the Foundation’s mission to provide entrepreneurs in developing countries with a chance to lift themselves out of poverty through microcredit.
I LOVE this idea. Donating something like five cents of a product may seem like a small amount at first thought, but on a large scale, it really adds up. According to the Whole Planet Foundation, they have committed more than $29.3 million funds to microfinance programs in 52 countries, positively impacting more than 1,260,000 people worldwide. That’s impressive.
