An amazing organization I've come across (link above)
Ok people, imagine if myspace were a place where you could help people from around the world? Impossible? No, Kiva.org is such a place. It is a microfinancer. Basically they give people small loans in the amount of 25 to 1,500 dollars. More so, YOU the average Joe dogooder can do the giving. In essence, every person has a page who you visit, and if you want to join in to help them, you can give them $25 towards their dream. Yes, even people in Iraq are being helped. Wouldn't it be nice to send these people a message: we want to help you, not blow you up! If you want to do take a look go to KIVA.org. The founder is featured in smithsonians 37 under 36. People who are making a difference. He seems to be a decent guy with a Christian Background. And it's cool to see that average people can really do something. Who wants to join me in sending $25 to Iraq?
