If you want to help someone in the world to help themselves and their family, then I suggest you go to the kiva website and read it.
People around the world ask for a donation, as little as $25 (£20) to help them start a business. They will repay you the loan – no interest, you are helping them out remember! – and you have helped someone in the poorest areas of the world begin a new life for themselves and their children.
Just visit the site, check the pros and cons and think about $25/ £20. Can you give that? Most of us can, think about it.
