Make a Difference!

Here at YAY we believe that all of us can make a difference in our world. One way to do this is to support humanitarian organizations. As a company we have chosen to support Kiva. Kiva is “a person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend to unique entrepreneurs around the globe”. This is known as microfinance of entrepreneurs, and the aim is to fight poverty by empowering people. You can lend as little as $25 dollars, and when the money is re-paid you can withdraw it, or re-lend it. At YAY we always re-lend the money. If you don’t have any extra money to help other people, maybe you could donate some of your time to volunteer work or to promote important causes?

    Hi Linda,
    just to let you (and all your readers) know and invite to join my “Microstock for Microcredit” lending team at kiva.org. When you make a loan, you could choose a team!
