In honour of the first community raising $500 000 in microfinance funding at Kiva I thought I would spruik their good work at TravBuddy. Support local communities through sustainable tourism when you can travel, and through microfinancing when you can't.

Of course it helps that the relative community funding rankings are so interesting. Which philosophical community has raised the most money? Atheists and Agnostics(#1), with Christians (#2) a distant second (Mormons are at #33 with Flying Spaghetti Monster supporters close behind at #34 and ahead of the Catholics at #35). Which politicial community has raised the most money? Team Obama (#3), with the conservatives at #58 and Capitalists at #98. Which advocacy community has raised the most money? Gay, lesbian and friends (#9), far ahead of wind power supporters (#83) with the anti-choice brigade down at #86 (but at least they are beating "Cats are people too" at #87). Which geographical community has raised the most money? Europe (#4), Australia (#6) and Belgium(#8)! (USA is at #32).

Thanks for evangelizing for Kiva, I'm a Agnostics Flying Spaghetti Monster lender! Well just agnostic/lapsed Catholic and Buddhist but F.S.M. sounds cooler.
