Kiva & Junction Books

Posted in Kiva

Since 2007, I have been a lender with Kiva, an organization that attempts to better the lives of people by giving them opportunities through micro-loans. Even though it is a simple thing to do on my part, it has been quite a rewarding experience. Because I believe in this organization and cause, I have created a Junction Books Kiva team and at the end of each publishing season I will make a Kiva loan on behalf of Junction Books. I encourage you to check out Kiva and, if you are so inclined, to please sign up and join the Junction Books Kiva team. Cheers
