Our News Years 2010 Loan-A-Thon is coming up soon. Last year we had a very exciting Loan-A-Thon because Team Obama challenged us to a time-shifted Loan-A-Thon. We lent at New Years and they lent during Obama's inauguration.
This years Loan-A-Thon will take place during the 48 hours of December 31 to January 1st Pacific Time (although we are flexible since everyone is in different time zones). To participate in the Loan-A-Thon all you have to do is make a loan (preferably with new money you've added to Kiva specifically for the Loan-A-Thon) during the specified time frame and, if you like, post to the team message board to let everyone know you've participated.
Some team members make pledges in advance for how much new money they will be lending during the Loan-A-Thon to encourage others to follow their lead.
On another note, I think we should set our 2010 year-end lending goal as $3 million dollars in total loans lent.
