5% Goes to Kiva Loans!

We loved being part of Lisa and Tom’s Long Island wedding at Old Bethpage Restoration Village on June 14!  In addition to giving their 5% donation to Kiva, they decided that in lieu of wedding favors they would give back even more to the organization. How inspiring is that?! It’s another Event that Gives Back!

An excerpt from the Kiva website:

“We are a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.”

“100% of every dollar you lend on Kiva goes directly towards funding loans; Kiva does not take a cut. Furthermore, Kiva does not charge interest to our Field Partners, who administer the loans. Kiva is primarily funded through the support of lenders making optional donations. We also raise funds through grants, corporate sponsors, and foundations.”
