Team profile picture

We loan because...
we are grateful for the many privileges we enjoy in North America and want to empower the working poor to better their material circumstances and the communities they live in. We also recognize that we live in a society that is focused on stuff. We are constantly bombarded with messages telling us that our lives would be better if we had more stuff. Culture Detox is about consciously choosing to reject this ideology; to give instead of spending. It is about recognizing that using our resources to help the poor is one of the things Jesus would have us do on this earth.
