The entire team at Ad Vendors is committed to corporate and personal social responsibility, which is why we donate our resources, time, and services to organizations that contribute to our collective well-being. We make volunteerism a part of our corporate culture through paid time off for volunteer leave. We are especially proud of our involvement in the following:
joinFITE is an active philanthropy platform, powered by Kiva.org, that connects you to women entrepreneurs who need a hand up. As an official Partner, Ad Vendors has committed to help joinFITE market their program and help to raise funds. Every time you activate an Ad Vendors code by clicking here, Ad Vendors will donate $1 toward a microloan for a woman entrepreneur chosen by you. If you are interested, you will also be given the opportunity to make a donation of your own for as little as $25.
By providing a woman access to a small loan, you are empowering her to start or grow a business – bettering herself, her family, and her community. joinFITE is a fun and easy way for you to help another when you activate a donation from Ad Vendors International.
Kiva.org powers the joinFITE platform, and is a non‐profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.

Louisa Chiaramonte can be seen here with Monique Legault, Ad Vendors’ Business Development Manager, at the “Fling’em for Breast Cancer” gala in London.
Regional HIV/AIDS Connection
A Taste For Life is a dining event in which participating restaurants agree to donate the equivalent of 25% of the night’s proceeds to the Regional HIV/AIDS Connection. Ad Vendors has donated graphic design services and secured media coverage for this annual event.
SAGA Humane Society Belize
The Saga Humane Society was founded in March of 1999, mainly in response to the animal control measures used in Belize: strychnine-laced bait tossed onto the streets at night for any animal unlucky enough to be wandering around and hungry. It was a time when no veterinary services were available in San Pedro. A small group of women, one of them a medical student, banded together to do what they could to aid the suffering stray dogs on the streets.
AdVendors has donated graphic design services and works closely with the Humane Society to help animals in need find loving homes.
