Repaying your loan to your Paypal account, after donating via Paypal with funds from a CC, is entirely logistically possible. Excuse ... REJECTED.

It's just more meaningless drivel used by eBay/Paypal to justify accessing your Bank Account rather than a CC for payments of any kind, because eBay/Paypal make more money that way.

Now, if they would come clean and just say out loud that they don't want to pay CC merchant fees when they are donating the usual Paypal fee, then fine. But, they prefer to hide behind any excuse they think we will buy instead of just telling the truth in the first place.

Not a knock on Kiva ... and I don't meant to suggest it's not a good reason to participate, but definitely the Standard Operating Procedure for eBay/Paypal, whom prefer obscurity over transparency every time.
Dude there are WAYYYY bigger problems with micro credit than them only accepting PayPal. It's still better than doing nothing...

I feel like breaking into song!

Team ehMac is now at $6,375.00 in loans with 12 members and 94 loans.

And hey... just saying... Team Mactalk Australia is only at $2,625.00, although they have 35 members and 105 loans.

Maybe its time for a little friendly rivalry?

Make that 14 members. Just signed up and made four donations to groups and individuals of my choice (I could not find Mrs. Bako-yaya). I figure that if I pick a continent each week, by Hanukkah/Christmas, all of my gift giving will be done and spread around the world.

Great site, Mr. Mayor. Kudos.
