Good point, horseguy!
First post edited, let me know if I should add more
Looks great to me! But then again, what the heck do I know? I thought the last one looked great, and I completely missed this issue. I am getting senile. When I was in my 20's, I would have noticed this immediately.
OTOH, I noticed so many little details back then that I annoyed the heck out of people. I guess a little bit a senility does have some benefits.
Senility has some benefits. I keep forgetting I have already long passed my Kiva budget for the month, but keep on lending. OTOH, some distinctly non-senile milepointers ar doing that this month (and, it seems, every month). OTOH, I still seem to manage to annoy people.
I just bought a totally unnecessary new car yesterday so I made some new loans in penance.
IMHO, there is no better penance!
Updated with more pledges
I will pledge $50 at the $500K mark.
DUPLICATE MESSAGE -- so shoot me!
MORE PLEDGES PLEASE. We've collected on the $300k pledges. Now need some additional ones for $400k, $600k, $700k, $750k, $800k and $900k. Then we need BIG ones (little ones too) at $500k and at $1 million.
PLEDGE NOW. Let's also consider a Thankgiving pledge -- hope that doesn't screw up the pledges spreadsheet.
I've never celebrated Thanks Giving. Looks like my first one will be virtual. I will make one loan but sorry I won't eat turkey that day.
Added to the spreadsheet There's room for more!
American Airlines' representative is still alone here - when will the next airline/hotel chain join the team?
The same pledge applies for $400,000.
I just fulfilled my pledge (unrecorded) for passing $300,000. In the process I fully funding the remaining four loans from Moçambique. That is the only Portugese speaking country in Kiva now so I felt obligated. That is a bit of tortured logic i have not been able to use before to justify a Kiva loan.
This is really astounding! We are #2 for lending this month among ALL teams as well as Common Interest. Only the Atheists rank about us. We are climbing the ranks of new members too, as more people join our party. In my wildest dreams I never expected we'd make $100,000 this month, much less keep on going unabated. Wow!!
A medieval axiom: Bonum diffusivum sui = Goodness spreads by itself .
Disclosure: As an undergraduate, I had a major in medieval philosophy.
And they have 50 times the number of members we do!
If we can pass the Christians (about 21x larger, memberwise) it will be a sweep of some sort.
I'm really proud be a part of our team.
I misread and thought you were quoting the apparent motto of a few companies I know of:
Bovium diffusivum sui
Update 10/6 - the FIVE matches have been made - this offer is closed - a big THANK YOU to Anonymous, bonnerbl, JY1024, Miles and Smiles, Unavaca for participating in the match program.
I will invest $1,000 in new money for each of the next FIVE people who invest $1,000 (or more) in new money to Kiva starting after this post (see rules), for a total of $5,000 in new money on my end.
My Current Balance is:
My Rules: To qualify for my match please show post an image of your Current Balance before and after adding $1,000 (or more) of new money to Kiva and making your investments. The addition of new money and the investments must take place after this post. When you make your post start a conversation with me so I don't miss your post. I'll in return post a screenshot of my Current Balance after I make the match in this tread and provide you a link via the conversation. I reserve the right to take up to one month to make the match - just in case I need to wait for a new funding source or something like that. In general it may take few days to make the match.
This is a friendly match offer please don't Photoshop in your new money or anything like that.
wow, iolaire - that is very generous!!
Wow, that is a very generous offer! You certainly will have the five people and soon after that we'll have all the $350,000 triggers for pledges. Thanks iolaire!
Too bad you didn't make it a month or so ago, as I have already added $1000 in new money in recent weeks. But I will think about adding another $1000.
And just in case I do, here's my current status:
Available Kiva Credit: $0.00
Outstanding Loans: $2,534.85

Sounds like we need to get Kiva into East Timor so you can do more Portugese speaking loans.
Having been to East Timor I know they would benefit from Kiva.
Good point. Not too many people I know have been there. Timor Leste, oddly means East east, as you undoubtedly know.
We ran to the top of the hill with the big statue of Jesus then back down then halfway up then down then up a bit. We just kept on running.
I did love riding a push bike in the Dili peak hour traffic after work.
I'd enjoy that too. I have never been there. From time to time I see people from there in airport lounges, their accent is unmistakeable.
Hard to make sure I put in enough extra loans for my pledge if others' pledges are unrecorded or I'm not informed. Added another 5 loans in penance.
