Cards for KIVA


Just a fews days left to purchase this season’s cards to benefit KIVA.

While I do not enjoy selling anything, I would like you all to know that a very small purchase of even five dollars will allow you to to contribute to this fine organization.                                  KIVA supports individuals desperately trying to support their families by administering small business loans with your purchase dollars.


I’ve contributed these three images to the mix, but the collection is varied and beautiful.  I usually purchase and then gift the cards at Holiday time.


Thanks for your consideration.

For those who are interested, the cards are donated by women from all over the globe who contribute to Vision and Verb.  V&V compiles each purchase to reach twenty-five dollars, then sends the full amount to KIVA.     Enjoy the V&V posts.  The are always a great read.

    Kiva is a wonderful organisation to be contributing to. Suggested them only recently to some dear friends in Ukraine who have neighbors with small business ideas that need funding.
    Well done to you and the V&V team.

One of the cards has a beautiful quote from Iris Murdoch: “People from a planet without flowers would think we must be mad with joy the whole time to have such things about us.” I agree!
