I am an avid supporter of Kiva, an organization that facilitates micro-loans so that people like you and me can give 25 dollar loans to entrepreneurs in developing countries.
Or better, in their own words:
We are 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.
Today they give away a free loan to new lenders, just follow the link attached to the logo.
I am going to give away a $25 Kiva certificate in the launch of MindScreens, my upcoming novelette. More about that on the M day!
