Celebrate Poverty is Unnecessary Day

Each year, on October 25th, we celebrate the 5% Day in Whole Foods Market® stores 13 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 second 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 and proceeds from the event benefit entrepreneurs living in poverty.
