Copy of Black Friday 2022

We're joining forces with Taaluma Totes to AMPLIFY THE GOOD and give back double to communities in need! 

When you purchase from Rice Love or Taaluma today, it will support both missions!

Here’s how it will work: 

  1. For every Rice Love sale, we will give microloans to farmers and small business owners in India (in addition to delivering 12 meals worth of rice to families in India).
  2. For every Taaluma sale, they will donate 12 meals worth of rice to families in India (in addition to funding their normal microloans).
  3. Moral of the story: one purchase supports two missions.

 

Meet Taaluma Totes!

Who is Taaluma Totes?

Taaluma Totes connects this world’s awesome cultures, awesome people, and awesome fabrics together - one tote at a time. They appeared on Shark Tank and have an amazing 2,400 five-star reviews. Even better, their products help global communities in need reduce hunger, eliminate poverty, and ensure education and sustainability. 

What do they sell?

Taaluma Totes sells colorful, unique, beautiful backpacks. Every tote is connected to a country, meaning it is made with a local fabric from that country and supports people in that county (example: the Vietnam tote is made with traditional fabric from a mom-and-pop shop in Vietnam and gives back to people living in Vietnam). See their best sellers here!

How do they give back?

For every item they sell, they give a microloan to a farmer or a small business owner living in the tote's country. A microloan is an interest-free loan given to someone who doesn't have access to traditional funding. All recipients are thoroughly vetted farmers or small business owners dedicated to improving their local communities. When the loan is paid back, the money is used to buy more fabric from that country, thus starting the cycle all over again. 

When you carry Taaluma, you carry a country.

Here's to making your Black Friday shopping count and helping communities in need around the globe.
