I'm lucky enough to live in a relatively safe and prosperous part of the world and like the idea that I might be able to make a big difference for someone else out there using the power of the Internet to bring us together.
I used to work in an office of a major oil and chemical company in the middle of London. I spent all day in front of a computer or on the phone or in meetings, with a bit of travel. It's nowhere near as boring as it sounds. The people were great and every day is different.
Now I'm very lucky as I'm retired, but can afford to continue with Kiva.
