About a year ago, I shared seven sites where you can help others by clicking a button. I have another site to share. This one involves a little more than clicking a button since you need to leave a comment or sign up to the RSS feed. I think it’s a neat idea, so I thought I would share.
In full disclosure, the new owner of this blog (Jeffrey Strain) owns the site. He emailed me to share the site and didn’t pressure at all for me to blog about it here. I’m only blogging about it because it’s a neat idea. I’m already a subscriber 🙂
From the About page:
In the later part of 2008 I was having a discussion with a good friend about people and their desire to do good. He had asked me a simple question:
“If you had a five figure amount of money and you wanted to do good, what would you do?”
I said that not only would I support a cause that I believed in, I would try to figure out a way to encourage others to do good as well knowing a lot of people doing good things — no matter how small — can add up to great changes. He handed me a check and said for me to use it how I wished to encourage the world to be a better place. This is the beginning of that journey…
Jeffrey shares ideas for no or low cost ways to make the world a better place. For each comment the site receives, 10 cents will be put towards funding a microloan at Kiva.org. If you sign up to the RSS feed, 25 cents will be added. So far, one microloan has been funded.
If interested, the site is called Free Microloan. If you have a moment to leave a comment you can help fund the next microloan.
