After April’s Meetup on Atheism and Altruism, our group raised $300 to be directed to microloans through Kiva.org. Wow!! As of tonight, our group is the proud sponsor of 5 different entrepreneurs, in the countries of Togo, Philippines, Lebanon, Palestine, and Sierra Leone.
Our donations are being counted toward the Kiva lending team of the Atheists, Agnostics, Skeptics, Freethinkers, Secular Humanists and the Non-Religious, a team that right now has the most members on Kiva (9,000+), AND has raised the most money ($1.9 million).
If you would like to donate additional funds to our Kiva account, please email me or speak to me at one of our gatherings. This outreach project will be an ongoing one for our group, so feel free to keep up the altruism! Also, if there is a specific entrepreneur you’d like us to support, post his/her profile on the forum thread, or let me know.
