What do you think of people in poverty? Maybe what Jessica Jackley once did: 'they' need 'our' help, in the form of a few coins in a jar. The co-founder of Kiva.org talks about her journey from giving with a mindset of transaction between rich and poor...to giving from a place of love which allows the opportunity to share in the lives of others.

    I love this video, and I LOVE Kiva.org. This is a fantastic, visionary organization! Jessica's love, compassion and enthusiam is contagious. I've been a lender for over a year now, my donations have been repaid and re-lended, and there's no better feeling than knowing we can all work together to make a difference in the lives of others.
