I’ve blogged about Kiva.com before. It’s the site that allows people to lend money to micro-finance institutions in developing countries which in turn lend the money to small businesses. Well back in March, I reported that the number one donating team on Kiva is the “Atheists, Agnostics, Skeptics, Freethinkers, Secular Humanists and the Non-Religious.” Now, we’re still leading on Kiva with over 5,000 members, while Kiva Christians are number 2.
But if you sort by category, under “Religious Congregations,” The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster with over 600 members is leading with the Catholic Kiva as number 2. This news has also made it into USA Today. Bobby Henderson Bobby Henderson from the The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster is trying to get his team to surpass the $100,000 mark.
Let nobody ever tell you that atheists and pastafarians aren’t charitable.
