Having donated to and volunteered with both these charities, I can highly recommend them both. Simple ways to give back!

1. Kiva.org

What if you could make someone's dream come true with just $25? What if that dream was to create a business in an underdeveloped country that would lead to the betterment of hundreds of lives? And what if, after a year or so, you got your $25 back?! Would you help change the world?  Learn more at Kiva.org.

2. Cross Cultural Solutions

This volunteer organization is a well organized and very convenient way to volunteer abroad for anywhere from just 1 week to 3 months.  My amazing volunteer experience in Peru was with this organization and I couldn't have been more impressed.  Learn more here.
