      Meet Cecilia!  She lives in Liberia, which is one of the countries that has been ravaged by the Ebola epidemic.  When I was in college, I was assigned many research papers on Ebola, because it is considered a zoonotic (can be transferred from human to animal and vice versa) disease.  Through my research, I learned so much about the daily trials and tribulations of the indigenous people of the Ebola River Communities. 

      http://www.kiva.org/lend/821461#loanComments

      When I learned of another outbreak, and heard that it was the worst one yet, I knew that I wanted to help.  Many people are so uneducated about this virus and therefore are in fear of completely irrational things regarding it.  The average household income in Liberia is only $500, and now it is much, much less because of the quickly spreading disease, many local businesses have had to shut down and people are not only dying of ebola, but now also starvation, malaria, and many pregnancy-related illnesses which were previously treated in hospitals.  For fear of spreading the virus, even most of the pregnancy clinics are shut down to women in labor or children dying from malaria.

      Please, I pray, that the people living in Liberia, Sierra Leone, as well as all the other smaller affected countries can overcome this.

      Damn it feels good to be me right now.  Thanks LCB for your partnership in this.

      Here's her picture. It really struck me. Oh yeah, and an anonymous donor matched my $25!  In the words of Stuart Scott, BOOYAH!

      I think you made a very good first choice loan Jodi.  I'm sure she will pay it back so you can lend to another deserving cause.

      I was pleasantly suprised to see the amount that the LCB team has donated to date!  Also have to gives props to slotland for being on our team and donating as well. Going to have to make a deposit there soon!  Would be nice to get more of our reps to get their casinos on board there.

      Once I'll reach the kiva voucher amount I'll spend my lcb virtual money for that aswell. Will post it also here. I'm curious how many % of the members spent her/his lcb money for that.

      0.244% of all shop items purchased have been Kiva loans.  In fact it's a little lower than that but that's as near as I can get it on the info I have.

      jodiisgreat, I have donated money to kiva in past and not through lcb site. I have question for you: What will happen to the money (this 25$ lcb gift card) after it is repaid on kiva? Will that money go back to lcb or is it yours money so you can withdraw that money from kiva or make another loan? *Sorry about my not so good english. Thanks for reply.

      Hi Mizra. Your English is great!  As your borrower repays the loan the money is deposited into your Kiva account. You are then free to either withdraw it via PayPal or check or to keep on lending. I choose to keep on lending!!  Hopefully somebody can link Team LCB's page on Kiva here.

      I've had the opportunity to loan Kiva credits too, all thaks to LCB! It really feels great, especially if in the everyday life you can't afford to donate as much as you'd like. Feels good to help someone in need.

      I landed 25$ this winter to a woman to have her eyes surgery. In case she pays pack I intend to keep lending money, really felt so good being able to help someone across the world for something critical for her life. Thanks LCB for that chance.

      So nice to be able to give back. I am so surprised the U.S. was able to stop this disease in its
      tracks. What could it hurt to treat a patient in the country they get sick in.
      I know if I am going to be able to give out kava loans, I should have several ready for that day.
