Do something good with what’d you spend at McDonald’s this week @kiva

First, sign up here.

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.

Now look – many of you, like me, want to help others out – and not by giving them the fish, but by helping to provide a loan for them to buy the fishing pole… a loan they will pay back and you can loan to others.

Or not. Anyway, it is a really good thing. Check it out.

I did.

  1. I buy about 10 McDonalds Arch cards (gift certificates) a week and I pass them out to whoever may need one.Even if they want a hit on their crack pipe, they’ll eventually need food, so I’ll try to give them what they need to survive. Handing them $20 won’t work anymore nowadays. So I hand them Mickey Dees gift cards.
