Thanks for posting this video Kimberlynne. I am glad I could learn more from you about the work of Kiva, impacting the lives of millions in need. I'd be checking out the website to learn more about the organization.

Thanks for the pointer... Kiva seems like a great and very useful project.

Kiva is a great organization, thanks for sharing!

Just wanted to clarify: Kiva uses LOANS to fund entrepreneurs, not donations. Which means you get your $25 back after a few months. All the more reason to sign up with them. I love Kiva! I've made seven loans so far,two have been paid back completely and the rest are ongoing. :)

I think my money is doing way more good being used as a loan to start a business, than just sitting in my bank account gaining 1.5% interest.

This is a wonderful find Kim. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice! Would love if you can find a way to let Kiva know how their work inspires you, and connect them into the EVOKE network...

Kiva is indeed amazing. What I find so great about Kiva is that it also makes sense in terms of business. Actually, when you look at the % of loans which are not paid back, the % is surprisingly low. So there you have it, hundreds or thousands of individuals from around the world pledging to loan money to a project, and the recipient is so filled with gratitude for all the support (democratization of credit, as the founders once put it) that they Really make sure that they re-pay the loan on time. Kiva is amazing, and I only wish some of the success stories from there is spread to even more people, to inspire them to think about development aid in new ways as well.

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Stinging Nettle

In this blog post I will focus on a plant that is abundant in our nature, and which is immensely nutritious. It's of course the Stinging Nettle. Let's start with the chemical constituents of this plant:37 % Non-Nitrogen-Extracts19 - 29 % Ash9 - 21 % Fiber4 % Fat22 % ProteinOnce the leaves are drid, their protein content can reach an astounding 40 %, which is much higher than beef, which even under the best of circ**stances can never exceed 31 % protein. In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
