    All -

    In conjunction with TOMS Shoes and Blake Mycoskie, I'm hosting a contest on my BoardingArea blog for the month of July, with all proceeds going to Kiva borrowers on behalf of me/my affiliation with the Milepoint Kiva Team.

    I'm also using a referral link so that new Kiva members get $25 free to give to a borrower, so that's even more to the cause.

    If you'll help me spread the word I'll be able to donate more (more views, more revenue, more to donate): http://boardingarea.com/blogs/gettingstatus/2012/07/03/contest-start-something-that-matters/

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I definitely like the contest. However, I would like to correct 1 line in your post:

    As much as I love our KIVA team, we have not donated $3M ... we have lent it, and will get it (or most of it) back over time. And some of the $3M is actually money cycled over and over again as we get repaid. How have we donated to KIVA? That is something that only KIVA would know.

    Cheers,

    GenevaFlyer
