We always like to give each other coauthor gifts for the holidays. Last year we bought each other chickens through UNICEF (the chickens didn't go to us of course but to those in need elsewhere in the world). This year we decided to fund an entrepreneur via Kiva. Given some of the themes in Ciao Bella, we chose a female entrepreneur with many children - her name is Ndeye Dione. She lives in Senegal, has eight kids, is in agriculture, and has just recently been fully funded. We wish her well!
In this season of giving, please consider sharing with those who need it most. Happy Holidays!
