Sending Kiva Gift Certificates to Strangers
I bought my first Kiva Gift Certificate today, and I sent it to someone I don't know. And I'm not sure he reads all his emails. He goes by the name of Perez Hilton, and runs one of the biggest tabloid websites. He gets millions of hits a day. What's amazing about it, is that he does it all himself, and how fast things get posted. His site is very tabloidy. So I'm hoping he will use the gift certificate and get involved in Kiva, even if he just puts a banner on his page.
I also lent to Emilio Plata who is a craftsman in Nicaragua. His description is only in Spanish and I am worried few people will bid. I emailed Kiva and asked them to put a comment place so we can do translations if this happens. But they are probably very busy.
