Give $25 of someone else's money to a charity....

I'm a big fan ofkiva.org- which is a site where you give microloans to folks in need from across the globe.

In fact, as a community we've given over $10,000 in Kiva microloans in ourGovLoop Kiva group.

Right now, Kiva is offering a free $25 trial loan at no costs to all new folks just use the link below...so yes, free money to donate...that's fun. Use my invite code below to get it (disclaimer - I get a free t-shirt which I'm happy to donate if 5 folks do it)
