I love Kiva www.kiva.org

Kiva is the world's first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend to unique entrepreneurs around the globe.


You get to loan money to an entrepreneur of your choice and they eventually pay you back and then you can loan it to another entrepreneur.

For a NZ option I am gifting donations to the Kiwi Encounter in Rotorua.
www.kiwiencounter.co.nz

They hatch kiwi eggs brought to them by DOC and raise them until they are big enough to survive in the wild. They run completely on donations no govt funding.Without these places our kiwis will disapear.
