Inspired by Kiva.org, Tori Tuncan set up a non-profit peer to peer lending for alternative treatments of autistic childs. Functioning on a blog and by using Paypal for payments, Lend4Health facilitated more then 30 loans so far. Loan requests are described online, lenders can contributed via ChipIn widgets (Paypal based) and Tori Tuncan posts updates on the progress and how the loan was used.
Companies can help Lend4Health by sponsoring the Paypal fees.

What Is “Lend 4 Health”
Lend4Health facilitates community-based, interest-free “micro-loans” as a creative funding option for individuals seeking optimal health.
Currently, Lend4Health is facilitating loans for the biomedical treatment of children and adults with autism spectrum disorders. Other health issues may be included on Lend4Health in the future.
