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.
