Making a difference

Jason Kottke points to a very moving story “4 Generations” Water Buffalo:

‘4 Generations’ is a film short documenting my journey in southwestern China (near Tibet) to first find, then deliver a water buffalo to a poor family. The water buffalo led us to a family with an phenomenal story. Inspired by author, educator, and founder of photo.net, Philip Greenspun’s post, and donated by Philip and his friend Craig.

I read the story – but watching the video really has a big impact, so I’d recommend checking it out.

This is one of the reasons I love Kiva so much – it makes these type of stories possible. I would be happy to donate the funds I loan – but by providing 0% interest loans, that money is able to give again and again, while still making possible great things for the loan recipiants.
