Do It

Give a free Kiva loan

Annalee Shelton

March 31, 2013

The new book The International Bank of Bob got me thinking, what does $25 mean to me? Here in LA, it's a taco night at Senior Fish, half a tank of gas, or a mild Target run. To someone else, it can mean the world.

To celebrate Bob's book, Kiva is giving away free trial loans. Your mission: log on to the Kiva link and find a project that speaks to you. Give away $25 to someone with a great plan, and watch your inbox for updates. When you're done, come back here and leave a comment about the project you funded.

While you're at it, check out The International Bank of Bob. It's good.
