Earlier this week, I joined Kiva, a non-profit organization which facilitates micro-lending around the world.
Starting at $25, Kiva gift certificates allow the recipient to make their own loans to entrepreneurs around the world and help alleviate poverty. Your recipient chooses the loans, receives repayments, and can choose to lend again and again! It is a one-of-a-kind gift that keeps on giving.ï»¿
In January 2010, I will begin to share my first-hand experiences. Until then, if you forgot to get a gift for someone, make a $25 investment on their behalf by sending a Kiva gift certificate. You have the option of either printing it out, or sending it immediately as an e-mail. It's the perfect solution for those last minute gifts.
