Did you know you can make micro-loans through Kiva.org for as little as $25? I’ve made 16 loans, using (I think) $75.00. Now, 25 times 16 doesn’t equal 75, but what happens is, when the interest-free loan is paid off, I lend it again. The same $25 goes around and around and around.
Please join me on Team BOOK READERS, WRITERS & BLOGGERS UNITED. You can choose where your money goes by gender, enterprise, location, amount needed in total or… well, any number of ways. Feels great to get an email saying “You have a Kiva credit”, meaning one of your loans is being paid off. When I get about $36 credit, I loan it out again, with a little extra thrown in for Kiva’s operating expenses. Every year or so, I put another $25 into the pot and around and around it goes!
As for TV, I spent the night with Mom last night, and we watched The Good Guys, and I learned that, if you want to heat pizza up in the toaster, you turn the toaster on its side.
WRITING PROMPT: How does your main character heat up pizza? In the big oven? toaster oven? microwave? not? no pizza–ever?
