Kiva

Kiva is a very cool site/charity/thing that you should get involved with.

Basically you donate $25, which goes towards a microloan for a small business-owner in a developing country. Once the loan is paid back, then you can withdraw your $25 or loan it out to someone else. The interest collected on the loan goes towards covering the overhead of the organization administering the loan.

Awesome.

Update: there's also the founders blog, The Kiva Chronicles, which is an interesting read.
