Helpful: Microcredit

I know many of us are going through donation overload, what with the hurricanes, earthquakes, and widespread poverty. Obviously, local needs are most urgent, but if you want to do a ton of good for a tiny investment, I encourage you to look into "microcredit lending" non-profits throughout the Third World.

I'm a big fan of Heifer International, and there are many other org's, along with an overview of microcredit lending, here.
