We give willingly, without regard to “What's in it for me?”
We achieve this through compassion, sincerity, and generosity

About us
Our Kiva Group Mission: To give 1,000 people $25 that they can have to lend to a person in need. A person somewhere on our planet earth that is committed to rising up of poverty to build a sustainable means of supporting their family.
Once the lender pays you back, you can then loan the money to another, and another. Your loans will have a truly profound effect on the lives of the borrower’s family.
Lisa and I call this The Gift of Giving. It is an enormously rewarding opportunity for us. It is our hope that you too can experience the same sense of fulfillment that we do with this project and help make the world a better place for those whom you choose to lend to.
I once watched a story of a homeless and destitute mother of 3 little kids living on the streets in Calcutta India that, through no fault of her own, due entirely to the circumstances she was born into, was literally living on garbage scraps to feed her children. I learned that through an amazing organization named Kiva she borrowed $50, interest free, from a Kiva Angel Investor and she bought a cell phone. She turned that cell phone into a revenue generating business by charging passersby on the busy streets of Calcutta to make calls. She later moved her kids inside and now owns multiple cell phones that she and her kids make a living off of. The loan was paid back and the Kiva lender took their money and lent it to another.

We have an enormous amount of gratitude. Helping others in need is deeply fulfilling and is a great way to experience that joy. 1-800-BOARDUP is a nationwide victim assistance organization staffed by hundreds of incredibly generous retired fire officers and professional victim assistance coordinators who help victims of disaster in the middle of the night on one of the worst days of their lives. We are an organization that places giving in our core mission and values. This group is open to all not just the 1-800-BOARDUP team.
We are giving money to 1,000 friends and business associates so that they too may experience the Kiva organization.
We would like to encourage you to share the Kiva experience by:
- Helping a needy person who is trying so hard to build a sustainable source of income to support their family by lending the money. ($25 is a big deal to these people)
- Adding additional funds to your new Kiva account
- Share your choice of your Kiva borrower on the 1-800-BOARDUP Facebook Page
- Share our Kiva Lending Group on your Facebook Page URL HERE
- Invite others to our Kiva Giving Group – This is not my group this is our group. It is an open group that anyone can join. The objective is for large amount of people to make small contributions that make profound changes in people’s lives all over the world. The larger the group the bigger the difference.
Imagine the number of people who can emerge from poverty over our lifetimes if we lend, together as a committed group.

Imagine this:
Lisa and I pledge to give 1000 people $25 to lend.
If $25 is lent to a person and then paid back two times per year over 20 years that $25 results is $1,000 in lending capital.

If we invite 1000 people and they invite just 10 people each that is 11,000 people.
If those 11,000 people just add an additional $25 to their Kiva account that creates an additional $275,000.
If that money is lent 2 times per year over 20 years that creates 11 Million Dollars in working capital for poor people around the world to build sustainable business to feed their families.
