Papyrus-Recycled Greetings Helps Alleviate Global Poverty

At Papyrus-Recycled Greetings, we’re thrilled about our partnership with Whole Planet Foundation. Working with them was a natural fit for our company, and together we’re on a mission to help alleviate poverty in 60 countries by creating small, low interest microloans to improve the quality of life for people in developing-world communities.

Our donation to the Foundation will connect 543 budding entrepreneurs with the means to make a positive and meaningful impact in their communities. These new microloans will be distributed to individuals to create or expand a home-based business and lift themselves and their families out of poverty. All in all, it will help improve the quality of life for over 3,200 people, and we’re mighty proud to be a part of that.

Whole Planet’s mission hits close to home, as entrepreneurship and individual expression sit at the core of our company. Papyrus began as a small family business run out of a kitchen, and Recycled Paper Greetings was the brainchild of two friends who took an imaginative risk with greeting cards. Supporting Whole Planet Foundation in their goal to help unleash the energy and creativity of every human with whom they work was a natural extension of our company’s core values.

We know that helping to ensure we have a healthy planet on which our friends and loved ones can enjoy the personal connections we inspire, a planet on which innovation and entrepreneurship can flourish in all circumstances, is integral to the success of achieving our mission of making life’s moments extraordinary.

It’s an incredible thing to see ideas flourish into reality, and it’s an honor to help open doors for those who have the ideas, but simply need a little help to bring them to fruition. These entrepreneurs are inspiring, and we’re excited to be a part of what we hope is a long and prosperous journey for them.
