Join Us in Giving Back This Thanksgiving, with Kiva

Help empower people around the world with a micro loan.

Many organizations have believed in Brandemix to assist with their branding, marketing, and recruiting needs.
During this time of year, we feel it’s important to give thanks for that trust and to give back as well.
That’s why, every year for Thanksgiving, we make a contribution to Kiva, a nonprofit organization that enables anyone to extend microloans — as little as $25 — to low-income entrepreneurs in struggling communities across the globe.
We chose Kiva out of many other microlending sites because 80% of its recipients are women, who are sometimes single-handedly supporting large families. As a certified woman-owned business enterprise, Brandemix believes in strengthening women around the world.

No matter how difficult our lives at the moment, people are suffering far more in many places – too many – across the world. Please take the time to visit www.kiva.org and give to the worthy cause of your choice. It’s not charity; it’s a loan, and more than 98% of Kiva recipients repay the loan with interest.
Lending through Kiva creates desperately needed capital in some of the poorest parts of the globe. It bypasses corrupt governments and predatory banks and ensures that the money goes directly to those who will use it. When the loan is repaid, you can give the money to another entrepreneur, donate it to Kiva’s general fund, or simply withdraw it. It’s a great way to give. And while you’re there, join the Brandemix lending team.
We hope you’ll join our efforts to fight poverty around the world and here in the US. From all of us here at Brandemix, happy Thanksgiving and always be giving.
