Empowering Women

 Unitus is a great site - innovative solutions to global poverty.

I am seeing a lot more sites like this. The web is transforming how we in the wealthiest nations can help people in developing countries and we can actually see and have feedback from the individual directly. I'm filming a report for BBC Click for next week on Social Lending - will post more details then.

Katie, just wanted to say thanks for shout out about the Unitus site. I wanted your readers to also know about a new microsite that we launched last week, just in time for Mother's Day at http://www.unitus.com/empoweringwomen.

It's a site that celebrates the empowering women in our daily lives, allowing user to build personalized tribute pages complete with stories, photos and video that celebrate their mom, sister, aunt, best friend or partner.

For every tribute donation, individuals will be empowering new micro-entrepreneurs with access to microfinance. For every $5 gift, you'll be helping our partners provide microfinance to one new client. Just think of the lives you could change for the cost of a bouquet of flowers!

The web really is helping connect people in the developed world to people in the developing world. We hope you think this new microsite is as fun and inspiring as we do!

Best, the Unitus Team
