nice plug for Kiva by Hillary Clinton today....

Quote
Remarks at the New York University Commencement Ceremony
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
Yankee Stadium
New York City
May 13, 2009

... When you go home today, go online and find the website called Kiva, K-i-v-a, where you can help someone like San Ma, a mother in Vietnam who is seeking a microcredit loan to buy rice seed and fertilizer for her family farm; or log on to Heifer Internationalís site, and for less than the cost of a dinner out, you can donate a flock of geese to a hungry family in Asia or Africa; or help Wangari Mathaiís Green Belt movement in planting trees and offsetting carbon emissions and empowering women in Africa.

Now, supporting these projects and others like them doesn't require a lot of time or money. But for the people you help and the planet you protect, your participation can be not just a game changer, but a life changer. ...


whole speech here : http://www.state.gov/secretary/rm/2009a/05/123431.htm

By the way, San Ma is in Cambodia rather than Vietnam, but I'm not going to hold that against Mrs C, only her speechwriters and factcheckers Laugh

Great find, Peter, I wonder if amongst those speechwriters and factcheckers are very new Kiva lenders Matt and/or (retired diplomat) Peter.

Best wishes,
Wolfgang.

Smiley  I noticed both of those new lenders as well, Wolfgang, and I wouldn't be surprised at all if they might be part of Secretary Clinton's team of writers or advisors.

Great find, Peter, thanks for posting this.
