Kiva chosen as one of Oprah's Favorite Things of 2010!

Today's an exciting day for Kiva: we were chosen as one of Oprah's Favorite Things of 2010!!!

Not only is Oprah honoring us by including us in this year's list — her final one ever — but she is also helping us launch a very exciting deal!

This weekend, new Kiva users can go to to buy $25 of Kiva credit for $15. If you've never made a loan on Kiva, and are interested in figuring out what all the fuss is about, this is the perfect deal for you. If you're trying to figure out what the perfect gift is this Holiday season... then this gift is for you. If you need to bring something to Thanksgiving to impress your in-laws, then this gift is definitely for you.

Groupon and friends of Kiva have agreed to match your $15 with an additional $10 more, giving you the chance to nearly double the impact you'll make with your first loan. Check out the deal here:

We're super excited to be featured on Oprah and to have this offer sponsored by Groupon and friends of Kiva. We'll keep you posted with further developments!
