Yes, I iz a boxette goddess! Enablers there, too!
LOL -- I knew you would!
So, British Airways miles ached to be redeemed prior to their precipitous value drop, so we'll be in South America during the DO, and are so bummed to miss it, but wanna win cool stuff by buying raffle tickets. Can come to SF to pick up our many winnings after our trip -- how do we buy?
Have a great trip!
The details for 'remote' raffle ticket purchases will be posted here as soon as they are worked out!
That's what I've heard. What's the 800 number for "Can't Stop Kiva Loans Anonymous."
There is only a web-based helpline and you are on it.
First step, recognize the problem;
Second step, "hair of the dog", make more loans;
Third step, repeat step two as necessary to keep the fear of withdrawal at bay
There may be other steps, but I wouldn't know because step three is working out quite well for me.
Welcome to the addiction within an addiction. It's like a 24 step program.
Woohoo!!! I have made my donation to the Milepoint Kiva Mutual Fund!
The prizes have me drooling. Hope I get a chance to win more than one!
I won't be attending the DO unfortunately but I just donated $100 to this continuing fund. I'm also a long-time contributor to KIVA and am a proud member of the Milepoint and FlyerTalk lending teams.
Very cool banner for the Mutual Fund. I like
it's our new variation of a sticky thread. Read it and understand it, then wave your mouse over it and in the upper right-hand corner you can dismiss it. You see the message, you read it and can make it go away. I love our technology! And getting better all the time.
I donated to the Kiva mutual fund since my own mutual funds are doing well with decent monthly payments.
We wish you could have attended also! Kiva is hoping this will be a template for future Kiva conferences and for this one, the schedule of speakers will be a whos who of Kiva!
This is so awesome. Just yesterday I was able to make my first loan as a member of the MP team, and now today I was able to contribute to the mutual fund (I gave a little to each of the three areas; I hope that's okay!). I really wish I could come to the Kiva Do, because even though I have just joined the MP team, I have been a fan of Kiva's for awhile. I'm glad this community supports such a great organization!
I love new technology. And here I sit stuck in a mainframe world
Amazing work everyone. I'm really proud to be a member of the team and wish everyone a fantastic weekend in Bay Area next week! I'll be sending loans from Europe in your honor.
The page isn't working for me -- it's just a blank page. Is everything working OK for online payments?
It is working perfectly
I still get a blank page
I'm using http://milepoint.com/kiva-mutual-fund/
Are these donations tax deductible? Since they are to fund loans and not to Kiva, the 501(c)(3) organization, and since you get raffle tickets, my guess is no. If confirmed as correct, I will make my contribution at the Do. Otherwise, I will make the same contribution at the Do.!!!
Just donated to the mutual fund. After being introduced to Kiva by this fine site several months ago already made several loans directly there.
It is nice to see that with all of our "first world" problem of what is the best first class seat, we still have the insight to contribute to others who are has real problems.
Great idea on the mututal fund. Can't make the DO, unfortunately, but just made a $50 donation to the relending funds portion of the MF. Still awed by the generosity of this group.
Sad I am not at the DO. I just made a $25 donation to the relending funds. Would be nice to win something, but will be happy just knowing that my donation will go to help those in need over and over and over again.
Entered the charity raffle with a donation to the re-loan fund, thanks for the reminder with $2,000,000 | KivaDo post….
Also donated to the re-loaning fund. I think that is an awesome idea!
