Random Acts of Kindness - Update

As mentioned in previous blog posts, I promised to use money earned from my Random Acts of Kindness Thanksgiving Bundle towards helping  people in my community.  I have purchased a collection of Christmas gifts for Giving Trees around town and donated food for charity food hampers.  My Thanksgiving Bundle was lucky enough to feature in the TPT newsletter and sold a lot more than I expected.  In the spirit of Paying it Forward and Random Acts of Kindness I was inspired by a fellow tpt seller 'Literary Sherri' who has been supporting a site called KIVA.  Kiva is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty through micro-financing. Kiva lets individuals lend small amounts of money to help create opportunity around the world.

Sarah Annes Creative Classrooms (that’s me :)  has just started 2 loans with the profits from my Thanksgiving and Christmas bundle.  The loans will be helping  Oahn in Vietnam  http://www.kiva.org/lend/644038  and  Kanha in Cambodia http://www.kiva.org/lend/643997  both women are seeking loans to fund higher education.  A wonderful cause!!

What a wonderful way to spend my profits from my random act of kindness bundle - it just feels right! 

Thanks to everyone who purchased it, if you are yet to purchase - feel free - i'd love the chance to make more loans in the future.
