I've never done a micro-loan or groupon, but just did @JoinTheHoop. A nice shirt or present for my wife + microloan + savings. Brilliant. -Dan Ancona
I'm really excited to announce our latest offering from the Hoop: crowd-funding "deals" for sustainable & fair trade products & producers. Check out the press release below for more, and please forward it on.
SF Based Hoop Fund unveils new crowd-funding Deals campaign combining fair-trade and personal investment
The “Fund Your Sweater, and Wear it Too” Campaign does exactly what it says, it gives consumers a way to do good while getting a deal. “Hoop Fund” deals combine sustainable and fair trade products with a personal investment in the people producing them.
Thanks to a partnership with Indigenous Designs, a $25 gift on hoopfund.com gets you a $35 credit towards any Indigenous product and a $10 micro-loan towards their women weavers, a vocational training project that enables women in Peru to learn new skills and earn a higher income.
