    Today, on MilePointMonday, I've been constantly watching our team statistics on the MP team page on kiva.com and updating people periodically in threads in our new forum. However, as we approach the magic number of 200 new MP Kiva team members this months, it seems appropriate to draw more attention to how we're doing. As you may know, we started with 76 members on May 1, so that we need to reach a team size of 276 to meet our goal. Doing so will unlock the ipad to be won by one of our lucky new members according to Randy's offer that was announced this morning. (IIRC the fine print of the T & C specifies that to count and to obtain their $25 match from Randy, these new members must make at least one loan of at least $25.)

    At the moment, Kiva credits us with 264 total members, which means a net addition of 188 so far this month. Thus, we need 12 more member to meet our goal more than one week early.

    EDIT: As I was preparing this post, we gained one more member. Eleven still needed to our goal. We're almost 95% there.

    We interrupt this countdown for a public service announcement. I don't know the numbers and I can't see any easy way to find this information in summary form on the kiva.com website, but some of our new team members have joined but haven't yet made their first loan. Hence, even after we have 200 new members this month, there will still be opportunities for additional new members to receive the $25 match from Randy.

    Hurry! Join the MP Kiva team and make a new loan credited to our team before this opportunity to help spend Randy's money vanishes.

    Of course if you're tardy for the party, you still get the satisfaction of helping and of being an appreciated member of our team. You'll also still get a chance to win an ipad if you join and make a loan by the end of the month.

    The current magic number is 5; we are only 5 people away from our goal of 200 new MP Kiva team members this month.

    Current time is approximately 10:35 pm RDT on MilePointMonday.

    The latest number is TWO; we are within 1% of our goal for new members of the MP Kiva team in May.

    While we are waiting for those last two members, maybe we need a quick goal update. This is equally amazing. Our $ amount loaned was originally a month-end June goal, but we brought it forward. As you see we are already 4% above the goal and we still have a week to go! Even more interesting all of you new members have blown away our loan numbers. We are already 62% above our goal. It is beyond my words to describe how exciting and wonderful this is to be a part of this team. Thanks, everyone!:D Goals.png

    DONE PLUS ONE
    We now have 277 members of the MP Kiva team. Given the 76 we had on May 1, this means that 201 new members have joined so far during the month of May, thereby exceeding our goal.

    Please keep joining and if you haven't yet made your first loan, please check out the possibilities and do so soon. Thank you.

    As of approximately 10:45 am RDT, we have exceeded our goal for new members during May by 8 or 4%. We value and welcome each one. Don't neglect to make your first loan and then another loan using the $25 match that Randy is generously providing.

    Membership update: We're now at 292, which is 16 above the goal of 200 new members during May and just 8 below the new goal of 300 total members by the end of May. Well done, everyone.

    If you're a new member, please be sure to follow through and make your first loan promptly.
