www.kiva.org

This is a website that helps loaners hook up with borrowers in developing countries. You can loan as little as $25. It helps people start their own business.

In Second Life, I dealt with someone raising funds for kiva.org.  They were wonderful!  Things like this are great programs!

My dad has just gotten me interested in this one- I'm going to donate this month.
If wisdom’s ways you wisely seek,
Five things observe with care,
To whom you speak,
Of whom you speak,
And how, and when, and where.

I was given a couple hundred dollars from work for Christmas this year to donate at Kiva. It's been a LOT of fun deciding to donate who to (really hard, too!) My husband and I donated almost exclusively to women, but we spread it out over different kinds of industry and different countries.
