Great Site for Giving

I just got word about a new site called What an amazing idea - you can help fund a micro-loan to someone around the world. Here's what Kiva says
The people you see on Kiva's site are real individuals. When you browse entrepreneurs' profiles on Kiva, choose someone to lend to, and then make a loan, you are helping a real person make great strides towards economic independence and improve life for themselves, their family, and their community. Throughout the course of the loan (usually 6-12 months), you can receive email journal updates and track repayments. Then, when you get your loan money back, you can relend to someone else.
Check it out sometime when you're in a giving mood.
