Each year, on or around October 25th, we celebrate the 5% Giving Day in Whole Foods Market stores in 2005 which raised seed capital for Whole Planet Foundation. We call this anniversary "Poverty is Unnecessary Day" because of the words of Muhammad Yunus, founder of Grameen Bank, Noble Peace Prize Laureate and initial advisor to Whole Planet Foundation.

Party with a Purpose is back in-person AND online this year! You can celebrate on the rooftop of our Whole Foods Market store in Austin or bid on auction items online while in the comfort of your own home.

No matter where you are, we want to recognize and raise a glass to everyone who has helped us fund more than $105 million in microcredit loans since 2006.
