Alaxapacha Update

Last night I checked on the progress of Alaxapacha's fundraising and found out that these women already raised the total amount of their loan!! Wow, in one short week, people who were previously disconnected by locale came together through these women and raised $3,350.00! 

In our time of uncertainty, people must be feeling the urge more then ever to give and share wealth. I feel honored to be a part of this flow of energy. When I go out to the Kiva Web site and read about these international entrepreneurs, I am drawn to their humble stories of wanting to sustain their family and community through honest work. Underneath this universal desire, I sense a mutual longing that we all have when we want to fulfill a big or small dream. From the simplest request such as learning how to plant a garden to the larger desire such as attending medical school in order to heal lives, these universal stories of yearning bind us together in commonality.

My new strategy for fundraising in October is to wait until the end of the month, find a loan and donate the whole caboodle at once. So please check back to XOXO Dogs at the end of October to find out where HINT's profits are going to flow.
