Dearest readers and writers,
We all know the power of positive social media, right? You can barely publish or market your services without a full social profile these days.
But how to get to those goals?
Kiva! Kiva is a microlending site which finances small businesses and entrepreneurs all over the world. Supporters can choose a project/person, and lend them anywhere from $25 on up. The monies are managed by local/regional organizations, and the lender is paid back with the option of re-lending to another project (instead of taking the cash back out). I've done it before, and I very much like the idea.
So, this holiday season, I've got a challenge for you.
Help me get to 500 "likes" at my professional FB page, and 2K Twitter followers. If I reach both those goals before Christmas, I will donate $100 to a female Latin american entrepreneur through Kiva (and this is a public endeavor, so you can rest assured I'll follow through).
If you already follow me on these sites, you can still help. Tweet or post about my challenge. RT my posts on twitter. Let the world know!
