Kiva, Obama and Educationgeneration.org
When worlds collide - I joined a new Obama 'Kiva lending group' - barackobama.com that was just started by a friend. I made a loan to Juliana Odoko in Lagos State, Nigeria in support of the new group.
I also set up accounts and sponsored students for my 'facebook Obama friends'), 13 of them. I only friend people on facebook I know personally, btw. But very few people who I know personally actually know about this blog, I don't publize it.
I made a gift myself to Maria Ritz in Pakistan so she can continue her schooling. She wants to be a teacher and help support her 6 siblings. How about they all become teachers?
Been working on Obama 2.0 - change happening in America. I'm pretty excited about all of the things we've got going already.
