Give a Little Late
With all my business travel last week and family stuff I missed making my Thursday "give a little" donation. I finally did it yesterday by making my 24th Kiva loan of $25. Kiva makes small loans to people all over the world to help them lift themselves out of poverty and fulfill their dreams. In all the years I have been involved with Kiva, I have never had a loan default, even though many of the loans were made to people in high risk, volatile regions such as the Sudan, Congo and Afghanistan.
Kiva is one of the most fulfilling experiences in giving I have had. It really isn't giving at all ... it is investing in human potential. Better late than never!
Read about my Thursday's Give a Little Challenge. I have to give ongoing props to Wendy Smith for her inspiring book, Give a Little. Give it a read.
