Do You Know What Today Is?

It’s the second day of Random Act of Kindness week -- otherwise known as Generosity Day. Thought I was going to say something else, didn’t you? Regardless, today is a day to celebrate connection, whether it’s with the barista who remembered your order, a supportive friend, your sweetheart, or a borrower in Tanzania. Being connected makes people stronger, more resilient and compassionate, which is truly worth celebrating.

Maybe you want to buy your barista flowers or send your friend a box of chocolates. Or maybe you want to celebrate your meaningful connection by encouraging those individuals to connect to even more people through lending by giving them a Kiva Card -- to “loan it forward,” so to speak.

However you decide to celebrate and thank the people with whom you are grateful to be connected, we want to hear about it. Tweet us, post on our wall, or write us at our (new!) email address, blog@kiva.org, to tell us how you celebrated February 14 -- whatever it means to you!
