I wanted to let you all know about a cool non-profit that is doing great things: Kiva.org
Kiva.org is a non-profit that allows you to make a small 0% loan to low income entrepreneurs in the developing world (microfinance). Individuals like you can help provide affordable working capital for the poor — money to buy a sewing machine, livestock, etc. — and empower them to earn their way out of poverty.
My first loan is to Teresa Quispe in Bolivia. She needs the money for wool so she can continue to make her sweaters and support her children and grandchildren.
Thanks for reading, and feel free to spread the word!
