Portion of proceeds from Eppa Sangria to benefit Whole Planet
AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Light, fruity sangrias are a hit at summer parties this season. Eppa
Sangria not only brings the ripe flavors of summer to a party, but it
also brings the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.
By purchasing red or white blends of Eppa Sangria from June through
August, shoppers can help create new beginnings in the lives of people
in the U.S. and developing countries.
From June 1 through August 31, Eppa will donate a portion of sales
proceeds up to $25,000 to the Whole Planet Foundation to fund poverty
alleviation around the globe. Eppa Sangria is owned by Deutsch Family
Wine & Spirits.
“Whole Planet Foundation is grateful to Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits
and to our shoppers for the incredible support in helping raise funds to
alleviate poverty and fund microloans across the globe,” said Whole
Planet Foundation development and outreach director Joy Stoddard.
“We are very proud to expand our relationship with the Whole Planet
Foundation and support the extraordinary work the organization is doing
around the globe to empower women entrepreneurs,” said Deutsch Family
Wine & Spirits Chief Marketing Officer Renato Reyes.
The only organic sangria on the market, Eppa Sangria is crafted in
Mendocino, California, from certified organically-grown grapes and an
innovative blend of organic juices including pomegranate, blueberry,
blood orange and aÇai. As a result, it is antioxidant rich with two
times the antioxidants compared to a glass of red wine.
Founded in 2005, Whole Planet Foundation’s mission is to empower women
entrepreneurs with microcredit and the chance to create or expand a
home-based business and lift themselves and their families out of
poverty. Through grants to microfinance institutions in 59 countries
(the U.S. and in 58 countries across Asia, Africa and Latin America),
the foundation currently supports more than 577,000 clients, with a
repayment rate of 97 percent.
