Devote Yourself to creating something that gives you purpose . . .

"So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they're busy doing things they think are important. This is because they're chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning."

A Lending Page Has Been Created (KIVA)

A lending page has been created to support Women's Businesses a World Away . . .


I want to recruit you to my lending team, 3 Degrees - Connected™, on KIVA, a non-profit website that allows you to lend as little as $25 to a specific low-income entrepreneur across the globe. You choose who to lend to and as they repay the loan, you get your money back.

If you join my lending team, we can work together to alleviate poverty. Once you're a part of the team, you can choose to have a future loan on Kiva "count" towards our team's impact. The loan is still yours and repayments still come to you, but you can also choose to have the loan show up in our team's collective portfolio, so our team's overall impact will grow.

3 Degrees - Connect™ is a women's organization which supports women's innovative interests in West Michigan. Read the post "Who Are We" to learn more about us. It is our interest to further the cause of women and children both here in West Michigan and abroad. Although you may select who you will lend to, we hope you will join us in supporting women-based businesses that desperately need your help.

If you are interested in learning more about what we are doing, please send an email to or read future posts tagged "KIVA" about the women we are helping worlds away.
