Chris here… I just came across something that immediately resonated with me and felt it was important that I share it with you.
Honestly, I’d be doing you a dis-service if I didn’t share this with you.
Well, in its simplest form The Power of Giving is one thing that I’ve always resonated with. It’s always been a good choice when I choose to give, whether its cash, time or ideas to others.
Even back when I didn’t have any money to give, I realized the importance of giving and would often give a % of my paycheck when I was a bartender & valet parker in Orlando, Florida.
If you’ve ever read the book any of the “mindset” and “abundance” books you have probably noticed a common theme where people share the importance of giving and how it has impacted their lives.
Here’s a short little Tony Robbins video about the power of giving, that I suggest you watch.
What has this led to?
Well, I came across a way of helping to give back to others even when you might not have “the big bucks” to donate yet.
Something that allows you to really make a difference in peoples lives.
This is something that I believe will make a major difference in the World, and why I decided to align myself with them.
Watch this video:
Kiva gives all of us the chance to help people help themselves by supporting their businesses $25 at a time. What is pretty amazing about this is that you aren’t just blindly donating money.
You are giving a loan. As you’re paid back, you can choose to withdraw your money or you can loan it out to more people to help other businesses.
This basically means you could take an initial $25 loan, and fund endless businesses with the same initial deposit.

Bolívar is 50 years old. He is married and currently lives with his wife and one son. He needs a loan to buy seedlings and manure, and to help with a coffee plantation he wants to start. He wants to provide the proper care to his plants in order to have a better production and better economic earnings.
He hopes that in the future he can provide a better quality of life and better economic stability to his family. He also wants to keep growing as a person and as a coffee producer.
This is the first loan he has received from Fudecosur. He had never had loans with state banks, but Fudecosur offered him a loan with better terms and a much lower interest rate.

Quotes About The Power of Giving Back
“If you wait until you can do everything for everybody, instead of something for somebody, you’ll end up not doing nothing for nobody.” ~ Malcom Bane
“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.” ~ Zig Ziglar
“Giving is the highest expression of potency. In the very act of giving, I experience my strength, my wealth, my power. This experience of heightened vitality and potency fills me with joy. I experience myself as overflowing, spending, alive, hence as joyous. Giving is more joyous than receiving, not because it is a deprivation, but because in the act of giving lies the expression of my aliveness.” ~ Erich Fromm
