A Cool Way to Give

Would you like to make a difference in people’s lives even as a poor student? You should check out Kiva. Kiva is a microloan service- when people in poor countries need a small (by our standards) loan, they can find people willing to help them out through Kiva. Try something like this: put in $50, loan $25 to two different people. When they repay the loan, loan your money out to other people. You can do a lot of good with that $50.
