"The basic premise of this idea is to throw
convention on its head (because I like to be different). Instead of
using the Social Actions API to draw people TO my site, this widget
would send them AWAY. This widget would need to be embed-able on
Lend4Health (currently on Blogger, shorter term Word Press, longer
term unknown). The text at the top of the box would say, "Like
microlending? Here are some other ways to take action." And then below
that, the widget would pull from the Social Actions API three (3)
opportunities categorized as microlending (eg, from Kiva, Wokai). It
would FILTER OUT the Lend4Health opportunities. The bottom text (small
print) would read, "These sites are not affiliated with Lend4Health."
I also would like it to say "Powered by Social Actions" somewhere if
possible (with the logo). This widget will be placed on the "landing
page" (currently non-existant) where Lend4Health lenders will be taken
AFTER they make a loan. So we are referring them to Kiva after they
have already made a loan on Lend4Health (so we don't lose, but Kiva
can win). I believe widgets and efforts like this will help to break
down some of the barriers between the Social Actions platforms and
show some of the "giants" that collaboration is possible, and not
always resource-intensive. Of course, Kiva and Wokai (and any others
out there) are welcome to return the favor by placing a similar widget
on their after-lending landing pages."

If you want to include this widget on your site place this code on your site:
This is the configuration for showing only micro-lending results that
are not from Lend4Health. If you would like to use the widget for
showing different results that is totally possible by changing the
first parameter of the callSa function. This parameter supports all the
variables that are supported by the Social Actions API. The second parameter of the callSa method allows you to trim the description field. If set to 0 it will not show the description at all.
