    Kiva is hoping to organize parties in major cities around the world and would like to enlist the help of Milepoint members who could assist in planning.

    This team has proven to be a catalyst for many great things for Kiva and hopefully we can continue this tradition.

    They will be celebrating the week of Oct 22nd and would really appreciate the help of members to serve as hosts or even help with travel arrangements.

    Team New York and I will coordinate the NYC party and Kiva is hoping to have other cities like LA, Chicago, Miami, New Orleans, Toronto (and other international cities) take part. Anyone willing to help out and be part of the Kiva's 7th Birthday party bash?

    Yes, there should be! I'm up for attending, assuming I'm free, but I don't think I can commit to planning.

    Kiva is still requesting people to organize parties around the world, big or small, its all great.

    Brisbane, Auckland, Miami, New Orleans, Orlando and others need support. Anyone willing to help out?

    I assume Dreamworks will be organizing the DC bash.

    Last I heard, they were looking for people to organize YUL, too. Anyone?

    YEG and YYC would be great, too!

    I think Kiva has something like Batman's bat signal in the party pack. Just hook it up to any spotlight you may have lying around the house.

    As part of Kiva's global birthday party (Oct 20-27th - New York will be a launch city), they are organizing a team loanathon and have asked the teams to help set the targets for lending during that week.

    I think we can do $50 000 in loans if we try and would like to know if others think this is a good target!
