Today's post is all about girl power...and I have a serious girl crush on today's organization.  Just officially launched on Jan. 6, FITE is a global empowerment platform powered by Kiva.org, the nonprofit leader in microfinance, that is designed to foster Financial Independence Through Entrepreneurship for women in the developing world. Their mission is to provide women entrepreneurs access to small loans that will help them start or grow a business; and to help educate the public at large about the benefits of empowering women entrepreneurs so that they “can hold up their half of the sky.” In just the first 2 years, they aim to help at least 25,000 women.

There are several ways you can join FITE and help fund an entrepreneur.  You can help fund a microloan for as little as $25.00!

You can also help by gettin' purty.  Dermalogica, the world’s preeminent professional skin care brand, is the founding partner for FITE, and has invested all the research and development to make FITE possible.  Buy a FITE-sleeve Dermalogica product and then redeem the code inside to activate a donation to fund a business of your choosing!

Also, be sure to check out the businesses and organizations who are already supporting FITE and the empowerment of women and give them a little love.


P.S.  Huge exploding knuckle touch to my creative and talented husband for the awesome new design!  You like?
