TSA#39 – You Can Help

Aug 13, 2012 by

If  you reading this, you can help.

If you are reading this that means you have internet access and can help.

You are probably reading this on your computer, which means you can help.

It’s time to help.

Kiva, is an amazing organization that users micro-lending to help others around the world.  Here is how they describe themselves.

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.

So instead of just giving your money to a worthy cause (not a bad idea), you loan your money to entrepreneurs worldwide that could use a little help to grow or expand their local business.  Your money gets paid back and you then get to re-lend that money again to others.

I’ve been lending with Kiva for a couple years now and it is a great idea and a very worthwhile endeavor.  Right now Kiva is running a special offer for new members.  Sign up now and they will give you and me $25 dollars (for free) to lend out through their network.  You have nothing to lose here.  Try it out.  It’s time to help.

If you brushed your teeth this morning with running water, you can help.

Ben…
