    UPDATE: GOAL ACCOMPLISHED
    Recently, the Kiva Lending Team on Milepoint decided to get involved with sponsoring a Kiva Fellow as a way to learn more about how Kiva works and to foster an even greater relationship with Kiva.org. As noted in this thread, we have so far raised and awarded the number of frequent flyer miles for Devon Fisher, the Kiva Fellow we have chosen to sponsor for her trip to Africa and are now engaging in some general fundraising to assist her with expenses while there on assignment. Toward this goal, Milepoint has set up a unique PayPal account just for this purpose. We hope to meet this goal before she departs for Africa on Feb. 5.

    The Devon Fisher Thread (her accounts in Africa)

    Want to donate and earn a few more miles with that mileage earning credit card? Your support for Devon would be greatly appreciated.

    PAYMENT PAGE IS HERE.

    Done. It's always nice to be able to help someone who is about to embark on an adventure of a lifetime, creating memories she will never forget.

    I'm in as well. How about a progress bar so we can see how we are doing?

    A rudimentary progress bar added to OP. Thanks, a very good idea!

    Hi everyone. If Randy can tell me what was donated for Devon on Martin Luther King day, we will match it up to $500.

    Randy, can you do that?

    On Board for this one too, the 'match' today is a very nice gesture. Makes it more worthwhile.
    Strange though, that I couldn't make a credit card donation because I use the same card on PayPal.
    So went to PayPal and used it. Easy enough, just the first time I have ever ran into that restriction.

    The message was this:
    You cannot use an e-mail address or card number that belongs to an existing PayPal account. If you have a PayPal account, please log in. If you don't, please change the e-mail address or card number and try again.

    Randy

    Can you post a note around 6 PM EST to indicate whether the match requirements were met so that the match will be fully funded so if not we still have time to rally the troops?
