Change is good

I doubt whether people can change. Whether society can do more than just look forward...whether people can actually MOVE forward. And then I see something like this...

Thanks Kiva Lenders! You've funded EVERY loan on the site!!

To date, Kiva has enabled lenders to send $57,567,935 to the working poor around the world.

Currently, we are experiencing a traffic spike and all previously fundraising loans have been fully funded. Our team is working with Kiva's Field Partners around the globe to approve new loan applications every day.

Amazing! Never doubt the power of what we can accomplish if we do just a little bit. As my high school drama teacher used to say, "There are no small parts, only small actors."

As you say, how amazing is that! What an inspiring thing to hear, especially during a difficult economic time. As you seem to have a dedication to good causes, I thought you might be interested in hearing about another resource for online giving. I work for UniversalGiving, an online non-profit designed to connect individuals to the best possible projects to donate to or volunteer with. Check us out at if you're curious.
Wishing you the best in all you do.
