Fr those of you with a memory goign back 5 years or so you would remember the launch of Kiva. Kiva allows people to help others by funding their projects. It's more of a charity crowdfunding model whereas platforms like Kickstarter are reward based. Kiva, however was one of the very first platforms, and has lended much of it's setup to later platforms which include Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and hundreds of others. Well the Kiva platform has certainly come far in the last 5 years, celebrating it's 1 millionth borrower just yesterday. In it's first year of existence they helped project creators bring in over $500,000. Fast forward to current time, and they help projects bring in over $1.5 million each and every week!
