Why do you have these products for sale?First and foremost, team members wanted team merchandise. :)
Secondly, while most of our loans come from the direct to Kiva contributions of Brigade members, we wanted to provide a contribution opportunity for team members who aren't currently able to meet Kiva's minimum $25.00 micro-loan.
Who is selling these products?My name is Pfoinkle and I am Team Captain for the Butterscotch Brigade. Official Butterscotch Brigade merchandise is sold through CafePress who provide all the products, printing, and customer service for team merchandise. When $25 in markup are made from sales of Butterscotch Brigade merchandise, I use the $25 to make another micro-loan at Kiva.org.
