Kiva for Tea

I'm starting a new project that I'm really excited about and I hope that you will join me. First, let me explain what Kiva does. They 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.

As tea drinkers, I believe that we have a social responsibility to help those who work hard to produce our tea in any way that we can. Through Kiva, I've been able to make loans to two Kenyan tea farmers. If you sign up using this link, you'll get a $25 bonus just for signing up. I'll also get a bonus that I can then use to lend to another person in need. Imagine all of the good that we could do together. Please join my Kiva team and spread the word!
