Do you want to make a difference in the life of a child overseas this season?
“This Holiday Season Purchase Any One-Of-A-Kind Wrapping Paper From Participating Whole Foods Markets, and $2.00 Will Go Back To The Miracle Foundation.”
Hand-drawn art designed by orphaned children in India, will be featured on wrapping paper in over 60 Whole Foods Markets across the country and have teamed up with www.MiracleFoundation.org. The campaign “Wrap Once, Give Twice” will run through Christmas.
The story behind the wrapping paper is a personal one.
” Whole Foods Market Team Member Volunteers have an opportunity to travel to meet the micro-loan recipients of the Whole Planet Foundation, visit sources for the products sold in stores and give back to the global community. As part of this program, more than 60 Team Members have visited orphanages in rural India with The Miracle Foundation. Like anyone who goes on their life-changing trips, Bruce Fleegal came back and asked, “What more can I do?”
From there, an idea was born: feature the actual drawings from the children on something tangible to sell in stores.
This was a definite way to boost awareness for the orphans residing in India as well as benefiting them at the same time.
“When I saw the wrapping paper at Whole Foods Market, I got so excited!” said Caroline Boudreaux, Founder of The Miracle Foundation. “We are so lucky to have the team at Whole Planet and Whole Foods Market support our work. This is a give back campaign, giving our children what they need to thrive!”
The Miracle Foundation is a wonderful cause and their purpose and focus at this time is on empowering orphans in India by tending to the whole child and providing much need education as well as emotional support and health and well being. The mission is to stop poverty within the country and change the way orphanages are run all around the world. If you would be interested in more information, visit www.miraclefoundation.org.
