Kiva and Bill Clinton Discuss Giving on Oprah September 4th

Set your TiVos! Tuesday, September 4th former President Bill Clinton will be on Oprah to discuss his new book, Giving: How Each of Us Can Change the World (which I can't wait to read), and he will be joined by Matt and Jessica Jackley Flannery, the husband and wife co-founders of

You can read Matt's account of the taping on his blog, The Kiva Chronicles. Here is a little piece from his post:
"The President and Ms. Winfrey spent the next few minutes talking about the power of the Internet and "the Kiva model." Watching this was truly surreal. If you had told me a year ago that I would watch these two people discussing Kiva in front of millions on TV, I would have laughed."
You can read or listen to my interview with Jessica last fall here, and hear Matt's presentation and interview at NetSquared's December 2006 Net Tuesday in San Francisco on the NetSquared Podcast.

Yay, Matt and Jessica! Yay for you too, Bill (:
