brightfive commit to supporting charities that we believe will make a difference.
Each year we choose two charities; one which has a positive social impact on people either home or abroad and one which supports the industries which we work in.
In 2008/09 we will be supporting KIVA and Cake Software Foundation
KIVA is a not for profit social venture which allows lenders to give to a specific entrepreneur in a poor or developing world country.
This remarkably simple system highlights the power of online communities and enables supporters to have a big impact with a small amount of money.
Since Kiva.org was launched more than two years ago, it has brokered more than $6.5 million in interest-free loans to more than 9,000 businesses around the world.

Cake Software Foundation is the not for profit software organisation behind CakePHP.
Cake PHP is a free open-source rapid development framework for PHP – the programming language which we use for the majority of our web applications.
Their primary goal is to enable their users to work in a structured and rapid manner – without loss of flexibility.
