Zemanta will be giving away $6000 (split) to the five charities who get blogged about the most before June 6. Please help us reblog and spread the word about Wokai!

What is Wokai?

Wokai delivers an internet microfinance platform that allows individuals to provide Chinese microentrepreneurs with loan capital. Our organization acts as an intermediary in this process, transferring funds from contributors abroad to microentrepreneurs in China through our field partners.

Who does Wokai support?

A typical Wokai microentrepeneur is a female rural inhabitant, living on less than $1/day. Her microfinance loan, ranging from $150-$300 dollars, provides her with the capital to start a small business. Her business varies by location, raising sheep in a rural grassland or operating a small fruit stand in a city center.

With her income, she accumulates savings, which allows her to allocate money towards long-term investments like education and health. By the end of her loan cycle, she has experienced increased financial independence, bolstered self-confidence, and a strengthened sense of community.

Learn more and contribute today at http://www.wokai.org.

This blog post is part of Zemanta's "Blogging For a Cause" campaign to raise awareness and funds for worthy causes that bloggers care about.

Summer 2007 [11 Aug 2007|10:01am]
The best summer of my life. Hopefully, the last few weeks will top it off because this summer has been absolutely amazing. I am, however, super glad to be back home!

And to add to my good mood, I'm ready for SENIOR year, and ready for it to be the best year of my life.

NYLC [12 Jul 2007|04:47pm]
NYLC was incredible. even though i dont think i learned anything, i definitely took away more than i hoped for. the city, the people, the FOOD. (haha i wish. the food was horrible :c )

i really hate these summer camp things (like SNFI) because you start to love these people you're with and more than likely, you'll never get to see them ever again. this withdrawal phase sucks butt. but i dont think i would trade the past ten days for anything. <3 i'll never forget you rankin pirates!!! cause im a buy you a drank bus six!!!!

i miss home. i miss my friends. i miss snfi. i miss nylc. sigh.

yee :D [30 Jun 2007|02:56am]
so the past two weeks at giraffe with my kids have been super duper awesome. me, cindy, eugenia, and tiff chong got the most popular ta award, which was so rewarding. especially when the kids GAVE US A BAJILLION hugs and flowers :D

AND TO TOP IT OFF. frank is a loser. so he was using an oil sheet and since it had so much oil on it, he wanted to grease a pan with it to cook eggs. EW. what a frank.

giraffe! [22 Jun 2007|12:24am]
despite its lack of structure, giraffe is super fun! the ta's are all so cool and best of all, THE KIDS ARE TOO CUTE.

i have seven boyfriends. im going to miss them so much. two girlfriends too!

stories of the week!

first: a 2nd grader, kinda chubby boy named jonathan has been brainwashed by ben and jeffrey. so he likes to say "ballin'" with the hand motions when something good happens. if you ask him, " what are you?" he'll respond, " a gangsta!" what a cutie.

second: roy and thomas. the two best friends i love to hold and hug :D and thomas does not like to share me with other kids! roy likes to be held and likes to sleep!

third: justin has the best cheeks ever. he gives super tight hugs and likes to grab onto me and not let go. just like brandon WHO IS SUPER SMART. he was like i cant marry you, im too young.

fourth: samantha is too cute to be true! so everyday when her dad comes to pick her up, she runs to me and asks me to give her a hug and then kisses me on the cheek :D

fifth: ben, richard, jeffrey, cheryl, tiffany are the best orange TA's ever!!!! cindy and kevin are pretty cool blue too. hahaha. despite ben's laziness, our group is still the best.

my kids make me super happy. i dont know whered id be without them. no matter how strict and mean i am during class, when it's play time, they all drown me in kisses and suffocate me with hugs! its so rewarding. <3 kids these days!

for you. [16 Jun 2007|01:15pm]
thanks for being a super duper great friend. i learned so much from you this past year and i really hope we keep in touch. we've been through a lot together, but also had tons of fun while we were at it. there are so many things we do that make me laugh even though they make no sense whatsoever. so i'm really glad we got a chance to get closer with you this year and you better make an effort to let me stay a part of your life... or else i might have to sit on you and you'll suffocate to death. but i guess all i really have to say is thanks! so good luck in college and in life. i know you'll be fine, just remember you'll always have a short, fatty only a phone call away who cares about you deeply. even though you think somethings really wrong with you, seriously, you're not that bad. take care!
