Hey, did you notice the new cool cause link on your right? This week’s cool cause Kiva. You choose a borrower, make a loan for as little as $25.00, get repaid, and then repeat. Kiva lends money to borrowers so they may start a business or project of their own and create better lives for themselves. Thanks for the lead, Nancy. Also, if you find a cool cause you'd like me to highlight, email me the link.
