Whole Foods Now Accepting Art Donations

It seems a strange connection to me, so I’ll just let Whole Foods DFW take it from here:

The Highland Park store is currently accepting art donations for our annual Whole Planet Foundation Art Auction on March 24-25. It is open to the public and our team members and ALL proceeds will benefit the Whole Planet Foundation!

    It does seem a little random, but great food = art?

    I followed the link and read about their nonprofit.

    They provide microcredit – “small loans – usually less than $300 in the developing world – requiring no contract or collateral, offered to the poorest of the poor to create or expand a home-based business.”

    They show the average first loan as around $150 with a repayment rate greater than 95%. That’s great for a no collateral loan to somebody already struggling, and I’m sure these seemingly small loans go a long way to help motivated artisans develop their businesses.

    Very interesting concept indeed. And, I’d think the local artists donating their work are benefited by the exposure.
