A few days ago, I told you about the new 2012 Whole Planet Foundation calendar being sold at Whole Foods.
Today, I'm giving one away.
As I mentioned, the calendar is one of my favorite gifts for the holidays.
For just $3, you get a beautiful calendar filled with more than $20 in coupons for items sold at Whole Foods stores, including Kashi, Muir Glen and Nature's Path products. The coupons don't expire until the end of 2012 and can be stacked with manufacturer's coupons for extra savings.
On top of all that, every penny of your $3 goes to support micro-lending programs to help women in countries across the globe lift their families out of poverty.
So it's not only an affordable and useful gift, but you're also helping a worthy cause. A triple play in my frugal world.
To enter the giveaway, tell me some of your favorite affordable gifts for the holidays. Leave me a comment at the bottom of this post and you'll be entered to win.
I'll pick one winner at random on Monday morning.
In case you missed the first post, here's a little more information on the calendar:
Each month features a female entrepreneur who has created or expanded a home-based business with the help of Whole Foods' charitable foundation, Whole Planet Foundation.
This year's calendar features women from Paraguay, Malawi, Sri Lanka, Nepal, the Dominican Republic, Rwanda, India, Cambodia, Turkey, Indonesia, Ecuador and the United States.
Women like Lourdes, who was able to expand her small grocery in Paraguay with the help of a micro loan. And Felicienne, a bean farmer from Rwanda, and Itha, a cookie baker from Sumatra, Indonesia.
Since 2006 the calendar has raised $300,271, helping more than 8,200 people better themselves.
