BENEFITING: Kiva Microfunds
EVENT DATE: May 25, 2014
Instead of gifts for my 50th birthday, I would like to ask your consideration to donate to a few charities. One charity is local and one is global. My global charity is Kiva Microlending. This is a charity that I have been donating for 5 years.
We are a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world. Learn more about how it works.

1,149,366 Kiva lenders
98.93% Repayment rate
