Looking for companies and brands that both stand out, and have a great story behind them is something we love at GolfbyJosh. So when we came across Mission Belt Co we couldn't wait to share their message, and take a look at the products they have to offer. There are companies out there who are not just here to make a profit, but a difference in the world too, and Mission Belt Co are certainly one of those. The American based belt designers have been making waves, and not only for their innovative holeless belts, but also for their campaign to help others too. The name Mission Belt comes from their Mission to help fund projects all over the world, and the company was also featured on Shark Tank in the US, with great reception.
When you buy a Mission Belt you become a part of a great philanthropic effort - or as we like to call it, THE MISSION. Here at MISSION BELT, we don't just want you to look good - we want you to feel good too. That's why a dollar from every belt goes to fight hunger and poverty worldwide through micro-lending. These micro-loans range from $25-$500 dollars per loan. Small loans make HUGE differences. There are millions of industrious, motivated people striving and fighting for a better life and sometimes the only thing holding them back is a little capital to get started. It's a hand up, not a hand out.
Mission Belt Co
Mission are partnered with Kiva, which is a peer-to-peer micro-lending institution, aimed at getting Mission Loans out to the world. Rather than a handout, micro-loans invest in individuals with an idea and the desire to work who don't have access to traditional sources of capital.The designs and colours on offer are eye catching and certainly innovative to say the least, and the technology is brilliant.

Their logo is also a great one, and is aptly nicknamed the Mission Bird, here is what they have to say about it ...
"Throughout history birds have been used to deliver important messages around the world. They are dependable, noble, and signs of peace and prosperity. In that same great tradition, the Mission Bird is delivering help and aid worldwide to those striving and fighting for a better life. Together with our customers we are lending in over 65 nations worldwide and have given out more than 20,000 unique loans that range anywhere from $25-$500 each. We're helping hard working people put food on their tables and giving them the opportunity to make their way out of poverty and hunger."
Not only do Mission make fantastic quality belts and T Shirts, they have also incorporated the holeless belt technology in all of their designs, which is a fantastic feature and provides a perfect fit every time.
