Kiva...

We know firsthand the power a little help can offer.  Over the course of our business, we have received so much support and encouragement.  We are profoundly grateful and wanted to give back and help spread the positive energy!  We joined Kiva to do just that.  If you're not familiar with Kiva, it is a nonprofit that connects people to lending options to alleviate poverty and grow prosperity.  Kiva works with countries all over the world and tackles a wide range of needs.

One can help someone start a business, grow their business, attend school, rebuild their house... there's really an incredible array of projects to help fund.  Lending options start as low as $25 and the original loan's impact can be grown exponentially as the repayment can be used to fund other micro-loans.  We don't have a lot of extra money, but we've decided to set aside a portion of every sale and use part of that to help others achieve their dreams!

I have been making loans through Kiva for years & they are great! Might want to start a group where people can make loans and the loans add up. Not sure how to set it up but I belong to a couple of them on Kiva.
