Maggie Gyllenhaal is the thinking woman's movie star. She's got beauty and brains–and a passion for important causes like the latest non-profit organization she is supporting: Trickle Up.
Trickle Up takes donations from generous individuals like you and provides money to micro-enterprises in developing nations, where people often live on a dollar or less a day. The beneficiaries are not just waiting for a handout, they simply live in countries where the economy is so depressed they cannot even find honest work. By providing them with necessary funding, Trickle Up is giving them the chance to start and run their own businesses–providing them and their families not only with a much-needed income but a real sense of pride and purpose. Through their efforts, this fantastic organization has been able to help over 10,000 small business start up in places like Latin America, India, and Africa.
As if that weren't a good enough reason to donate to Trickle Up, they also offer a fabulous gift to donors who give $100 or more to their cause. A chic necklace designed by the chic New York jewelery company Ten Thousand Things. Wearing this beautiful piece of jewelry will not only give you a sense of style, but you'll also feel a sense of pride and joy knowing it is a symbol of the help you've provided to individuals who really need it.
It's easy to spend $100 in a single trip to the mall, but that money can go to change the entire life of a person who receives it through Trickle Up. Donate today–either for yourself, or in the name of someone you love, and enjoy the benefits of spending on a good cause.
