Our dear friend, Amy – artist, activist, and author – has published a stunning book.  (You go, sista!!)

She’s been working towards this dream for many days…weeks…months…years.  You know how that is, right, friends?  Some dreams take time [lots of time, on occasion :}] to grow from seed to flourishing beauty.  Let’s be inspired to water and cultivate our seed-dreams, while celebrating and supporting Amy and the women entrepreneurs of the Whole Planet Foundation.

If you are in Denver, head to any Whole Foods Market in the Denver/boulder metro today buy a copy of A Portrait of a Microloan in India (or 2, 3…)   And/or join Amy at a fantastic event (including Indian tea service, sarode and tabla Indian music, and autographed copies of the book) at the Denver Public Library on Thursday, March 12, from 6:30-9 pm (click here for details).

If you are outside of Denver, not to worry – email Amy to buy the book and have a copy mailed to you.

Every penny of the proceeds of this book goes to empower women around the world through microloans from the Whole Planet Foundation.

As a travel and portrait photographer, I have spent the last 13 years working to capture the faces and landscapes of those in my local and global community. As a team member at Whole Foods Market, I have had the extraordinary opportunity to visit India twice in the last 2 years, and witness the transformative power of micro-lending through the Whole Planet Foundation.  From this journey, I have created my first photography book entitled A Portrait of a Microloan, which offers a snapshot of the beauty and soul of India, and my firsthand experience with microlending in one of the poorest parts of the world. -Amy Wright
