On September 15th 2011, our team crossed the $5 million in loans milestone. Congratulations to all my teammates! We are now at $5.4 million of our year-end goal of $6 million. We'll have to raise $300,000 in November and December to reach the goal.
This year, Kiva has provided new tools for tracking goals and I set some up earlier in the year and we're doing great.
We are 98% to our goal of 70,000 new loans by Dec 31, 2011.
We are 97% to our goal of supporting 50,000 unique loans by Dec 31, 2011
We are 79% to our goal of 6,000 new members by Dec 31, 2011
We are 78% to our goal of $2,600,000 (2,023,150 of 2,600,000) in 2011 (started Jan 27th 2011)
Tomorrow we kick off our 4th Annual Halloween Loan-A-Thon which will take place during the 48 hour period from October 31st to November 1st 2011 (Pacific Time... of course you're always welcome to celebrate in your own time zone). 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... but recycled money is always welcome) 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. Personally, I pledge $200 in new money towards this loan-a-thon.
