kelvin: tools for change has joined FITE
Hanging pictures, putting up shelving, assembling flat packed furniture…these are the kinds of jobs we face every day in our lives. Some use heavy duty construction tools; others hammer nails with the heel of a shoe. Neither is ideal, so inventor-preneur, Kevin Royes created kelvin.23, the world’s first urban multi-tool. One tool to tackle hundreds of everyday jobs.
But more than just a tool for life, kelvin is a tool for change. By teaming up with the global organization joinFITE, kelvin will be helping to change the world by supporting women entrepreneurs in some of the world’s poorest countries. “A healthy, growing economy is one of the surest ways to lift communities out of poverty”, says Kevin. “There is ambition out there, but lack of funding. Our goal is to raise $50,000 between September 1 and December 31, 2011, then to loan it all out on January 1, 2012 as fresh energy to kick off the New Year. We hope our customers will join us and lend some of their own money as well. Who knows…we may raise over $200,000 this year. That’s a lot of change in the world. That’s powerful.”
