So, I was just reading at BoingBoing and came across this post. I'm thinking this is a great idea, and something that I'd like to participate in.
At Kiva.org Peope can loan x number of dollars to a business of their choice in the developing world... so easy... so helpful! I guess they haven't had anyone default on the loan, but you donate such a small amount it's not a big deal. And you don't make any money on it, but you do get to help someone make a life for themselves... that's awesome.
Unfortunately (or fortunately?) they got a lot of publicity lately, and now they have no businesses left to sponsor!
I ran into a little extra spending money lately, and this is something I'd like to see happen...
