Help us raise $1.5 Million - no money down! VOTE!

For once - this is a good part of the no-money down idea.

All you have to do is VOTE. That's right - you don't even have to pay a penny.

I expect a good number of the US and European readers of the Professor's Blog carry some color version of the Amex card.

Some of you might have even glanced at the "Member's Projects" section.

Now I am appealing to you to vote for Kiva which has made it to the top 5 in this year's final which will be chosen on October 14th 2008

I am a huge fan of direct aid to individual's vs some of the more bureaucratic charities who are well intentioned but not always the most efficient and effective form of giving. Kiva meets my personal goals in this respect. So please vote for them:

Here is the link you need to follow:


Currently it is running number 4 out of the top 5, we need it to go higher.

All of the top 5 are worthy causes - this one I feel is the best option. PLEASE VOTE FOR IT. If every visitor to The Professor's Blog was to vote - I think it would raise the profile by at least one place. So go for it!

Many thanks to you all
