Top 5 (in order of seriousness) things I found on the web this week:
Frontline did an article about kiva.org which allows everyday people to give out microloans. What I like about this program is that, as best I can tell, (their website is down due to the publicity) it’s not a donation to the organization, but a loan to a specific entrpenure in a developing nation that you get to pick out. And then, you get repaid (and hopefully loan it out again). Go check out Kiva.org now (and go back later if there servers are still down)!
