On May 17th 2010 at 11:20am PST our team of Atheists, Agnostics, Skeptics, Freethinkers, Secular Humanists and the Non-Religious reached two million dollars (USD) in Kiva loans!
In seven short months we have managed to raise $1 million in loans. We are setting a phenomenal pace and we are having fun all the way along. During the time our team has been in existence Kiva has raised $100 million and we have contributed $2 million to that total. Our team collectively has contributed 2% of Kiva's loan volume in that time span. Hopefully one day we will be able to say we contribute 10% of Kiva's loan volume!

Kiva's mission to spread economic opportunity to the whole world is important in shaping the future of humanity and I'm proud to say our thought community is leading the charge.
Congratulations to everyone on the team and thank you to Kiva for posting about our milestone.
At our last milestone ($1 million) we had 6,000 members and now we are almost at 10,000 members!! Our community represents an important part of the wider secular community. We are a solid example that positive change in the world can be lead by those who's sincere understanding of the universe is that the reduction of human suffering will only occur through human intervention.
We are well on our way to our 2010 year-end goal of raising a total of $3 million in Kiva Loans!
It's an honor being your teammate!
