About The Challenge
If you were given $200 to help lift yourself and your family out of poverty, how would you do it? In some developing world communities in Latin America, Africa and Asia, a loan as small as $200 can empower a woman to become an entrepreneur so that she can change her own life. Whole Planet Foundation funds poverty alleviation through microcredit in communities where Whole Foods Market sources products. The foundation has committed $26.5 million and supports more than a million people in 50 countries worldwide.
Create a design for a Whole Planet Foundation t-shirt that brings attention not only to the issue of global poverty, but also to the entrepreneurs who are lifting themselves out of poverty through their own energy, work and creativity. For inspiration, check out stories from some of the 199,659 microcredit clients who Whole Planet Foundation supports. The chosen design will be sold on Threadless, with a portion of the sales supporting these amazing entrepreneurs, and the chosen designer will get to travel abroad with Intrepid Travel!

The purpose of the submissions relating to this promotion is to create a stand-alone design inspired by the challenge, not a brand tee. Your design should not have brand names or logos on it.
