The ”Fund Your Sweater, and Wear it Too” Campaign does exactly what it says, it gives consumers a way to do good while getting a deal.

Thanks to a partnership with Indigenous Designs, a $25 gift on hoopfund.com gets you a $35 credit towards any Indigenous products and a $10 micro-loan towards their women weavers, a vocational training project that enables women in Peru to learn new skills and earn a higher income. About the Hoop Fund: The Hoop Fund is a unique crowd-funding platform that combines sustainable products with a direct, personal investment in the farmers or artisans who make them. The Hoop enables consumers to be investors in products that do good for the world. To know more about the current campaigns please visit http://hoopfund.com Abou...
