Obviously, we're incredibly excited about Kiva Cards this holiday season. When you give your friends and family Kiva Cards, you give them the chance to make loans to borrowers of their choice. It's the essence of Kiva, and truly the gift that keeps on giving.
Delivered by email, Facebook or printable at home, Kiva Cards are easy to give and get -- making them an awesome choice for any holiday.
That said, there are many other gifts available for the Kiva fans in your life at KivaStore.org. Operated by a passionate lender and volunteer, the KivaStore offers a number of Kiva branded products. And all of the proceeds generated go toward making more items possible and spreading the word about Kiva's mission.
This year, we're thrilled to introduce two new products: iPhone cases for the technology buffs in your life, and Kiva greeting cards showcasing some of the most beautiful photography we've captured in the field. Perfect for the holidays and beyond, these cards tell the story of the borrower pictured on the back, connecting you and the card's recipient with their story and what their Kiva loan made possible.
All of these items -- including our brand new 2013 Kiva Calendar (also featuring 12 beautiful, lender-selected photos and stories) -- are a great way to pledge your support for Kiva and borrowers around the world -- and to share Kiva with the people in your life.
We hope you'll consider checking out KivaStore.org this year, and of course encourage you again to pick up a Kiva Card or two for your loved ones so they can kick off 2013 by doing some good.
