    Here at dKos we tend to focus on things here in America, which is certainly understandable.The truth of it is, though, that we can't have full democracy here while folks are destitute elsewhere, any more than democracy here at home can flourish when CEOs get 400 times what their secretaries earn. This is a concrete way to change things.

    If you are uncomfortable with the idea of a loan and repayment, a group with a similar outcome (economic independence and community development) is the Heifer Project, (second half of the comment).

      This, too, is a strong movement to lift individual families.  Reputation for integrity, verifiable results, clean and efficient administration.

      Personally, I would like to see the Christmas budget of Kossack's families put into either of these projects.  I can talk all I want about being liberal but until I stop buying things we don't need, and put some disposable income into the hands of those who are in need, I am pro-war and anti-peace.  

      Sorry for the early-morning rant.

      I am recommending this great diary.  Thanks for introducing this program.
