Kiva loans - 20 to Honduras

Caught up on some credit - made 20 loans to Julia's and people in Honduras.

I'm building up my kiva funds to use as emergency funds - instead of money sitting in a savings account it's getting used. And it's there if I need it.

Science Conference

I was at a science conference for a week, presenting research and learning.

I had the opportunity to support the Easter Seals, a lady was selling scarfs in a pub I was at.  They were mostly fleece and she had them hanging from hangers on the wall, with a sign. She made $1200 last year. Figured out a way of making money while doing what she liked to do and was doing anyhow.  I bought a few and gave them away and they were very appreciated.  It was a win-win-win-win situation.

Modest needs. org.

I made my first donation to someone on modest needs . org. It was recommended from facebook.  It's a site where people can ask for a bit of help to keep them going over the edge.

I think that's important. So many people live so close to falling.

This is the one I donated to. It's a veteran who is about to go homeless and lose their companion animals. This would spiral the person downhill fast.  Helping them at this point in their lives would really change it.

If you make a donation, register first. You don't get the chance to during check out.
