Make a difference in 2008!

Everyone makes resolutions for the new year and for the most part they are not worth the paper that they are printed on. I have decided to make a difference this year and I have found a way to help others $25 at a time. Kiva is a website that matches people with a few dollars to spare with business owners in Africa, South America and other less fortunate countries that need loans to expand there business. In most cases these businesses need $300 to $1,500 and would not be able to get a loan the way you and I do. So if you can spare $25 to make a difference in somebody life check out Kiva "loans that change lives"! My first $25 goes to a Taxi Driver in Uganda Anatona Kakooza who needs repairs made to his taxi to continue in business. BMS Lender Page at Kiva!

That is a brilliant New Years resolution, what a kind and thoughtful thing to do, to help someone less fortunate in a third world country with their business is just pure kindness at heart. Way to go Jerry!
