Sent 1099 Income to Kiva

July 1st, 2008 at 04:40 pm

Today when I checked my bank account I saw that I'd received the $125 payment for a ˝ day consulting job I did about a month ago on a Saturday. I’d forgotten about it, so it was a pleasant surprise. I decided to send the entire amount to Kiva, www.kiva.org/ to help a women’s weaving cooperative in Guatemala. Once I am officially retired (August 2008), I will add any subsequent 1099 income to my $20 Challenge.

I love the intricate detail and beauty of Guatemalan weavings. Here is an example of a table runner I have on the dining table in Idaho.

    My sister has been to Guatemala a few times and she picked up one of those for my Mums once. They are amazing! Kudos for helping someone else realize their dream. Smile
