Small actions can make a big impact, and Whole Planet Foundation, the charitable arm of Whole Foods, will give one difference-maker the trip of a lifetime.
Through Whole Planet’s Facebook page, you can submit a 25 to 350 word essay showing how your actions are making a difference in the world. The winning entrant will receive a trip for two to India from Intrepid Travel.
True to the nature of the contest, the trip to India will also be an opportunity for travelers to meet with recipients of microcredit, a program that enables low-income women around the globe the chance to gain financial independence. Check out this video to learn more about this empowering program.
