I am still not sure I buy into the Kiva concepts, and have not participated yet, but after watching this video I am starting to think that maybe I should. Remembering that Charity is a major pillar in all religions and is with most folks in general, but is giving to the 3rd world more important than giving locally? That is always a tricky question for me.
Who is my neighbour? The easy answer is everyone, however, in my mind it is not that easy, so if you watch this video, answer me this question:Who is your neighbour, and where does your charity go?
