Skateistan – “Afghanistan’s Girl Skaters”

I really love Skateistan.

When I was a teen-ager, and actually also now, I used to hang out with skaters and that culture remained in my blood in a sort of way. And I really care about children and the fact that all around the world children deserve to play and have fun together.

Skateistan brings joy, education and fun to children. It began as a Kabul-based Afghan NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) and is now an International non-profit charity providing skateboarding and educational programming in Afghanistan, Cambodia and Pakistan. Skateistan is non-political, independent, and inclusive of all ethnicities, religions and social backgrounds. You can find how to get involved here.

“What is Kiva?” – Loans that change life

Today it’s time to go social.

Do you want to start help people for free today?
Join me here and Kiva will give you a $25 bonus to make a loan for free. What a fantastic idea!

Kiva is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.

How does microfinance actually work?


Then, will I see you on the other side? I hope so.
