If you are not familiar with Kiva.org, please familiarize yourself now. It’s a vehicle to allow people to request money in a dignified way. By asking for a loan to support their family and entrepreneurial spirit.
For anyone who signs up with this link and makes a $25 loan, Kiva will match it by giving $25 for our Kiva loan candidates. If you’ve thought about helping Kiva alleviate poverty worldwide, in a “teach a man to fish” way, please do so now. This is a great Win-Win-Win opportunity.
The best thing about Kiva (other than the fact that people are not looking to get something for nothing) is when a loan is paid back, you can pay it forward to your next preferred candidate, and your initial loan/investment just keeps on giving.
In consideration of what is shaking up to be the worst flu season on record, Sunset Alliance wants to provide a soundtrack for the sick. Ill jams for illness. Some shakedown for your breakdown. To do so, we need your help…
Provide a list of your favorite songs that our catalog has to offer, and we will post a label mix tape for everyone for free, on our Bandcamp page. A Sunset “Reliance,” if you will. Songs to heal the world, as MJ intended. The 10 most popular selections will make the cut. Choose your sickest tracks–and act fast–people are dying–w/o proper audio treatment!
The Christmas season brings out kindness in all of us. (And delicious egg nog) Sunset Alliance is grateful to Cougar Microbes for a mention in their holiday post. CM is a mighty fine blog that we have respected for some time. Read their post “Christmas With a Twist” (that honors Before Braille) here.
