Thanks for providing another option, Bradley. Let's just leave it at that and let our members decide to help or not. Vid

hi Vid and all,

That's very nice of you. Kiva.org and Paulina's loan is really interesting. I hope that works out for her family and business.

Check out this callout from a really awesome project in Oaxaca, Mexico. They are urgently trying to raise money by August 15th to expand their space, for working also well as for visiting guests/students to sleep.

This is posted on a multilingual* wordpress website that I maintain ;-)

"Our project, the Centro Aut?nomo para la Creaci?n Intercultural de Tecnolog?as Apropiadas- CACITA, (or the Autonomous Centre for the Intercultural Creation of Appropriate Technologies), for those who don?t know of us that well, is an self-sustaining project. Meaning, we don?t receive any kind of support from governmental, or international cooperation programs. We are a place of work in constant development, experimentation, and production of appropriate technologies, such as bicycle machines, solar ovens, dry compost bathrooms, building and constructing with natural materials, humanure and worm compost production, rain water catchments, natural filtration, and human-power pumping systems, community sustainable agriculture, recycled alternative fuels, and wind and bicycle powered electrical generators; to name a few."


*The whole website is not multilingual, but it can be, and that post linked above is.

sincerely,
Bradley

Hi, Santa Cruz WP member

I've formed our very own Santa Cruz WordPress Team on Kiva.org and have lend $25 to a mother in Peru named Paulina who needs $350 to keep an internet cafe business afloat. I figured I could do away with a few days' worth of lattes to help a stranger. Who knows there may be a WordPress meetup group in Peru in need of an internet cafe to meet and Paulina's might just be it.

Feel free to join if you are able. Here's our team's page on Kiva where you can track your investment:

Cheers,

Vid
