In the Sunday Morning Forum at St. Margaret’s in Lent we were introduced to “We are a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.” About Kiva

Folks like us browse and find a person or community we would like to help. Through Kiva a loan is made. The loan is used and then repaid through Kiva.

Finally, choosing a gift for Dad (or grad) from is simple and will allow the recipient (Dad or grad) to choose with whom to share the gift. Simply follow the link to the Gift Card page on Choose a Gift Card process and follow the instructions and your gift will go way beyond a necktie hanging in a closet. Your gift will have the chance to give grace and life to people you may never meet, and all for God’s glory.
