New Years 2012 Loan-A-Thon

2011 has been a great year for our team. We have continued to make impressive contributions to alleviating poverty through micro-lending. In 2011, we're 98% of the way to our goal of $6 million in total loans ($2.6 million for the year 2011)! ...... Let me say that again, in 2011 we lent over $2.5 million. That's incredible! That amount is 44% more than what we lent in 2010. Join me for the New Years 2012 Loan-A-Thon and we'll take care of the last $75,000 needed to break our goal.

This years New Years 2012 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.

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.

quote from Daniel R:
"Congratulations to all that helped bring in the new year during the Loan-A-Thon. We added 16 members, made 695 loans, and got $19,625 closer to the 6 million dollar mark! Despite many more members we only barely beat last year's total. Put those thinking caps on for how to help promote our Apr 1st and 2nd Loan-A-Thon. Hope that everyone is looking forward to another wonderful year of helping people around the world get a handup not a handout. "
