Kiva.org

Looking for a worthy charity that won’t cost you any money and only 10 minutes?

Try Kiva.org.  I heard about this program (a microloan program) on Oprah for the first time and wrote this post after I chose 2 women to whom I loaned $25 each.   Today I received an email update (below) on the two people I am sponsoring through Kiva.  Both are paying their loans back early!  Pretty soon I’ll have $25 back and will be able to loan to a 3rd person.   If you haven’t heard of or participated in Kiva before this, I highly encourage you to check it out.

Below is the repayment update on your Kiva Portfolio:
