Act Like A Nobel Peace Prize Winner…Today

A little birdie (actually Sandy) posted a link to Kiva.org today.  I didn’t know about this organization…but it facilitates you, me, anyone making a "micro-loan" of as little as $25 to someone in a developing country.  Thank you making me and my readers aware of this great cause Sandy.

Remember recently that, "Bangladeshi economist Muhammad Yunus and the
Grameen Bank he created won the Nobel Peace Prize on Friday for
leveraging small loans into major social change for impoverished
families.

The Grameen Bank’s pioneering use of micro-credit has
been duplicated across the globe since Yunus started the project in his
home village three decades ago. Loans as low as $9 have helped beggars
start small businesses and poor women buy cellular phones and
basket-weaving materials."
