Cole+Parker was founded on a vision to support entrepreneurs worldwide; so we created the 1 For Many business model. It is our small but sustainable contribution to making our world a better place. We believe that every person, organization and business has a manifest obligation to give back. No matter how small, everything counts.
We partnered with Kiva, a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through repayable loans as a way to alleviate poverty. For as little as $25, anyone can help a borrower start a business, go to school, access clean energy, or realize their potential. The best part is that 100% of every dollar goes straight to funding loans. Oprah says "Kiva is a simple concept that can change a person's life." We agree.
Proceeds from the purchase of our socks is loaned to support entrepreneurs in poverty. By purchasing Cole+Parker socks, you have helped multiple start ups around the world. To date, proceeds from the sale of our socks have funded over 415 loans in 9 countries.
