Something I do believe in though is a website called Kiva. The video below explains what Kiva is all about better than I ever could so give it a watch!
The best bit is that, for a limited time only, Kiva are giving new members $25 for free which you can then loan to someone in need. You don't have to spend a penny, only a little of your time, as all of these new loans are being sponsored by the cofounder of LinkedIn.
I gave my $25 to a woman in Jordan who runs an embroidery business. Who will you give yours to?
