One thing that I believe truly from the bottom of my heart is that giving is an integral part of receiving. As a result, even when I don't have much to give, I try to find a way to give 'generously,' which means I don't give to get, but I give to help.
I am excited about http://www.kiva.org/ which is a website recommended to me in a book I'm reading. This website where individuals can loan amounts as small as $25 to help individuals in undeveloped and impoverished parts of the world start or maintain a small business. It is a way that I can take coupon savings and turn it into a spark to help someone clear across the globe. Plus you can make teams to help motivate others to also help, so you guessed it, I made a spark people team!!!!
If you do your due diligence and decide also to help, please designate your loan to help our team achieve our goals!!!
There is nothing more motivational or positive then helping a person with a face and a story to make a positive life change. Especially when you have little to share, it is so awesome to know you are making a big difference to someone who is maybe not as different from yourself as you would think. I will be especially seeking out single women to help.
