View Full Version : OT: Giving

Guys, I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you about a charity that I participate in. It's online and called "Kiva.org." A one time donation can help others over and over. Here's how it works: You donate an amount (minimum is $25). Kiva uses a field loan officer from the country you are donating in (yes they get paid, but it's a tiny amount to us and gives them a job). The field agent loans your money to the person you requested receive it. Once that person pays it back, you can loan it out AGAIN! It's a great way to reach out and help others and your money goes a long way because it is a loan that gets loaned over and over and not a one time gift!
