Damn their earnest, hopeful faces. I used to try to give or microloan 4% (of admittedly not a great deal) but have slipped horribly since turning freelance / becoming a politically apathetic, over-caffeinated worker bee. But 1% sounds like a doable pledge. Suggestions above are useful. Do you rate Kiva, or is there a more effective finance scheme?

Kiva is probably as good as any for microfinance, but I don't especially rate microfinance. I just go with Givewell's suggestions these days - they have a team of intimidatingly smart people working full-time on thinking about cost-effectiveness and impact and rating charities and giving opportunities in order to maximise social returns. And they publish reams of detail about all of their investigations online.

Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I'd figured I'd ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My website addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you are interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way! aol.com email sign in
