Check out what our partners Oxfam America have going on at the website. The website focuses on microfinance credit, and currently is running a campaign where college campuses compete to raise money for this credit, which helps provide development and business opportunities to individuals in some of the world’s poorest countries.

Here’s what the Oxfam myspace blog has to say:

“If you knew you could fight poverty and hunger, conserve the environment,
empower women, and combat AIDS - all with just two clicks a day - would you do it?

The Oxfam America Collegiate Click Drive is a national online
competition to generate funds for micro-credit programs worldwide. Participation is quick and easy - each click generates a $.25 donation. To compete, go to The Click Drive runs February 12th through March 30th, 2007.

The funding provides loans to help start small businesses which help lift families and communities out of poverty.

Help make a difference today! Go to today to compete!”
