New Years 2011 Loan-A-Thon

Last year at this time I set a goal for us to lend a total of $3 million loans by the end of 2010. At that time we had $1.4 million in loans. We are at the end of December and we have almost $3.2 million in loans meaning we've raised nearly $1.8 million in loans in 2010 alone!! Great job teammates. It's really a huge accomplishment for the global Atheist/Skeptic/Reason Movement to be able to publicly quantify this great collective effort.

This years New Years 2011 Loan-A-Thon will take place during the 48 hour period 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.

This time we are also going to try something new... Swarm Lending. I'll pick a loan, post it on the team message board and anyone interested joins in on lending to that specific borrower. With the goal of trying to raise a huge percentage (if not 100% of the loan amount).

As always, 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. Personally, I pledge $200 in new money towards this loan-a-thon.

Cheers,
Pete
Team Captain

From Daniel R, our team stats man:

Despite an initial lack of loans due to the holidays the team pulled through to have our most successful loan-a-thon!

For Dec 31st and Jan 1st we added 51 new members (Welcome All!) and added $18,600 dollars across 665 loans. What a great way to bring in the new year!
