With Thanksgiving and the holiday season quickly approaching, I thought that it would be the perfect time to introduce you to a company that not only sells a really great product, but a company who sells a really great product with a mission. Meet Mission Belt Co.
Mission Belt Co. is a belt manufacturer who gives $1 from every belt sale to people in need through Kiva, an organization who manages micro-lending.
What is micro-lending?
Micro lending is a helping hand, not a hand out. This program helps to fight poverty and hunger by lending people the money they need in order to start their own small businesses anywhere throughout the world, whether it be to buy a cow or buy the supplies they need just to get the ball rolling. Through this initiative Mission Belt Co. gives people the jump start they need in order to create their own jobs and to restart their lives without charging them any interest on the funds they receive. Plus, once the recipient has found success and has paid back their loan, the money is then able to be lent out again and again to other deserving recipients. So instead of helping just one family with your purchase, the money provided through this campaign can continue to impact more and more lives as long as the mission continues.

So, what else is so great about Mission Belt Co.? Well, for starters, it has no holes. Which brings me to my other point about why I wanted to introduce you to this belt around the holidays. No holes means that it is easily adjustable. . . . just saying. 🙂

So, what’s better than getting holiday shopping done AND giving back at the same time? To me, it’s the perfect combination. Plus, looking at this product from a mother’s perspective, I especially love that this belt is available in children’s sizing. It not only grows along with my kids as they jump through new pant sizes in what seems like a month, but it is also super easy to put on and take off. This has made is so much easier for my little man to get dressed or go to the bathroom all on his own and he totally loves it. He wears this belt everyday, everywhere and with everything. Just a quick push of a button and it’s off!
Awesome belt. . awesome mission.
