Celebrate Poverty is Unnecessary Day & the 15th Anniversary of Whole Planet Foundation!
Each year, on October 25th, we celebrate the 5% Day in Whole Foods Market® stores 14 years ago which raised seed funds to make Whole Planet Foundation a reality. We call this anniversary “Poverty is Unnecessary Day” because of the words of Muhammad Yunus, founder of Grameen Bank.
Our third annual Party with a Purpose benefit in our hometown of Austin, Texas features a silent auction with 100+ local and global items, food, drink, entertainment, and the opportunity to alleviate global poverty with Whole Planet Foundation.
Tickets are $50, which includes food, drinks, and entertainment. Proceeds from the event benefit entrepreneurs living in poverty.
Please note this event is for attendees ages 21 and over.
Sponsorships are Open!
