Monopoly Houses for KIVA

Whether I have worked for someone else or run my own business, I have been privileged to support many causes. None, however closer to my heart than KIVA Through loans, not grants, Kiva assists entrepreneurs in emerging countries with start up capital to become independent successful business owners. Kiva promotes dignity, accountability and transparency.
Please click the KIVA sidebar to the right and you'll see the 15 amazing women I have been fortunate to become involved with since 2008.
Summer is a notoriously slow time for gift giving, so I came up with this idea. Purchase a Vintage Monopoly House Necklace from my shop and I'll donate $10.00 for each necklace sold.
Follow along with me as the entrepreneurial spirit grows. Each drop in the bucket has a ripple effect. Truly.
Thanks, and kiss the ones you love,

This is such a great idea Sherry! I have a Kiva gift certificate that I have to offer's so hard to choose because there are plenty of needy folks.

Kiva is a wonderful socially just and fair organization and it shows how much each of us can do with so little.

Kiva is awesome. My accountant gives gifts to Kiva instead of dumb calendars to his clients, and I think that's terrific.

Good for you, Sherry. I love the little vintage Monopoly houses (wood, no less!), and I respect what you're doing with them. I'll look forward to hearing about the results of this venture. Your altruism sets a wonderful example for all of us. Cheers to you, Katie
