Wednesday World Day {Kiva Loans}

I just signed up to help fund a Kiva Loan. Kiva is:

Kiva’s mission is to connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty.

Kiva is the world’s first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend directly to unique entrepreneurs in the developing world.

The reason I signed up for the loan was this. I am very committed to tithing and living a generous life. Also, I think that our tithe ought to go towards helping feed the hungry, clothe the naked, heal the sick, and bring hope to the hopeless. This being said, I didn’t think that my tithe would do that in my local setting (super-wealthy suburb in northern columbus, OH). Thus, i’m going to split up my tithe between my local church and other things. (just a lil FYI)
