If you could give a gift of money, without it costing you anything, would you hesitate? I know I wouldn’t! and I am not!
The LinkedIn Cofounder just gave Kiva $1 million dollars to allow people to give a one-time $25 micro-loan to anyone you choose. There are 95 people on the list from Armenia. There are 95 people you can choose from to give a helping hand. There are over 15000 loans left to give. Choose one and donate on behalf of Reid Hoffman.
“’How you build the future is you motivate people to pay attention and act, to improve their circumstances and run their own lives’, LinkedIn co-founder and philanthropist Reid Hoffman tells me. That’s why his support of microlending platform Kiva’s kiva.org/free program has a double positive impact. He put up $1 million so 40,000 people could try helping the impoverished via microfinance without spending their own money. They get inspired, while those who receive the microloans can start small businesses and become self-reliant.” (http://techcrunch.com/2012/03/13/reid-hoffman-kiva/)
Pick someone you want to give to using Mr. Hoffman’s money 😉 Help a family with a loan that would ensure prosperity.
