Thank You All Who Commented for KIVA!

Wow! January was our highest month for comments since we’ve been donating to charity based on our blog comments with 282 ($141) thanks to our posts about Abby’s attack and recovery. Thanks to all who commented, we were able to help all these people with loans through KIVA as a result:

Ali-Lebanon-Construction
Kalbubu-Kyrgyzstan-Livestock
Faaiuga-Samoa-Farming
Evans-Kenya-water distribution
Ricardo-El Salvadore-Pizza catering
Since February is Cat Appreciation month, our charity for February is Caroline’s Kids Pet Rescue, no-kill sanctuary for cats. It’s a house with LOTS of cats everywhere in rooms, but not cages! Unlike regular shelters, this is a sanctuary that takes in old, feral and even cats with feline HIV to let them live out their lives in a safe place with love. They also have adoptable cats too! Here's the video I took when I visited:

Yay!!!! Together we funded 12 loans on Kiva this month!!! That is soooo wonderful!!! Sorry that we both had "pet issues" that brought our comment levels up but so glad Abby and Gerard are doing so well after the incident!!! Your KIVA choices are great! It is so hard to choose, isn't it??? They all seem so worthy!!! Thanks again for the great idea!!!

What an awesome cause - and a great way to celebrate Cat Appreciation Month!

Karen and Gerard said...

Bethann: Yes, choosing is definitely difficult-it took me about 40-50 minutes to decide!

Beaded Tail: I hope it is too, but not due to any more drama in our life!

Sparkle: Thanks--our cats are excited about it!
