As some of you may already know we have been donating our freeimageslive.co.uk advertising revenue to kiva microloans for the past couple of years.
This year we have been able to loan a further $125 in assistance to worthy causes.
You can view full details of the freeimageslive kiva micro loan team at http://www.kiva.org/team/free_images_for_credit.
As I wrote last year, I know that at this time of year most people are not exactly feeling flush with spare money, but if you are a kiva member, or if you have not heard of them or microloans before now then I urge you to take a few moments and at least read about it. Kiva are one of the few organisations were every penny of your loan is used to help someone in need - helping them to help themselves. You can also help indirectly without spending anything by supporting either kiva or freeimageslive, by linking, tweeting or some of several other options we have listed on our support freeimages page.
