Anybody and everybody who has used the internet has most likely used Craigslist at some point or another.  Founded by Craig Newmark, Craigslist is a network of online communities, including sections that cover jobs, personals, housing, forums, services, and classifieds.  This week, Craig Newmark has officially announced that he is joining the Advisory Board for LendForPeace.org . Craig has alway been a supporter of peace initiatives in the Middle East, and with his experience as being one of the pioneers of community building, he should be a great asset to LendForPeace.org and can hopefully create some great microfinance initiatives in the Middle East and within the microfinance community.
