Rudi's Organic Seed Sprout Grow App

Rudi’s Organic Bakery is paying homage to its entrepreneurial roots through a microloan program with Kiva, a nonprofit organization with a mission to connect people across the globe through lending to alleviate poverty.

Rudi’s Organic has set a goal to loan $25,000 to 25 entrepreneurs in 25 days.  The amazing stories behind these entrepreneurs inspired us to create a Facebook application entitled, “Seed. Sprout. Grow.”  Through this application, fans can select an entrepreneurial story that inspires them and ‘share’ it on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest.  It’s pretty simple - for every story shared, Rudi’s will  loan $1 until we’ve reached the $25,000 goal.

We would LOVE your help in reaching this goal!  Simply visit the  ‘Seed. Sprout. Grow.’ application and select an entrepreneur whose story touches you  and share.  For each share that your post receives, Rudi’s will also loan $1!

Fans who want to loan more can join Team Rudi’s Organic on the Kiva website and loan additional funds in the dollar amount of their choice.

This program was in part inspired by the introduction of Rudi’s Organic’s new Super Seeded and Sprouted Breads, which offer super nutrition without sacrificing the flavor and soft texture of Rudi’s Organic breads the whole family has come to enjoy.  To encourage folks to try the new delicious bread, there is a $1 off coupon for any Rudi’s Organic product inside the Facebook app.
