Charity Spotlight

Kiva is a non-profit that allows individuals to donate, or loan, money to entrepreneurs in developing countries who do not have access to traditional banks and financial systems. Borrowers use the money for various purposes -- you can donate money to a farmer looking to purchase cattle, a shop owner who needs to purchase more inventory, and I even saw people on there who were looking to fund their weddings.

What's great about this site is that you can choose who you donate your money to and for what cause. They will also post updates, so you can see how your donation made a positive impact. The borrowers pay back your money and then you can re-invest in another cause!

This site is definitely worth checking out!
