Monday Morning Inspiration – Kiva.org

Happy Monday!

This is the week of Thanksgiving for some of us and not too long after that it will be the Holiday season. A time to be thankful and a time when we give inspired me to share this video. The video is another from the TedTalks series at Ted.com. You may have noticed if you are a regular visitor here that I have previously shared videos from Ted.com.

Today’s video is an 18 minute presentation by the founder of Kiva.org a nonprofit organization that grants micro loans to aspiring entrepreneurs around the world in an effort to alleviate poverty. [My very brief description does not do this great organization justice, so please visit their website and see what they are all about and how you can get involved]

I hope this video and the information on the Kiva.org’s website inspires you to make a donation and help an entrepreneur.

Have a great week!

Inspirational Video: Jill Bolte Taylor’s stroke of insight

Today’s inspiration comes from the TEDTalks Series at Ted.com. The annual TED conferences, in Long Beach/Palm Springs and Oxford, bring together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives (in 18 minutes).

On TED.com, they make the best talks and performances from TED and partners available to the world, for free.

Jill Bolte Taylor got a research opportunity few brain scientists would wish for: She had a massive stroke, and watched as her brain functions — motion, speech, self-awareness — shut down one by one. An astonishing story.

My take: very educational, intellectual, touching and inspiring. I would love to hear what you think. Go ahead and watch the 18 min. video, then let me know what you think by using the comments box below.
