Genealogists for Families initiative
Judy Webster has been in touch from Australia to ask me to give the Genealogists for Families initiative a quick plug. The scheme works by allowing genealogists the chance to make small loans of $25, via a non-profit organisation called Kiva, to low income families or businesses across the world. When the loan is paid back the genealogist can reclaim the money or re-invest it again. Genius!
The project has a blog at http://genfamilies.blogspot.com, whilst to join the project visit www.kiva.org/invitedto/genealogists/by/judy3877?utm_campaign=permteam-share-team_recruit-normal&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=genealogists&utm_source=genfamilies.blogspot.com
It seems a great idea, and I've just signed up and made my first loan - I'm sure they'd welcome yours as well!
