    As past DO-ers will know, one of most enjoyable parts of any DO is the charity raffle. Whether for the Jason Dahl Foundation and Livestrong on SMD3 or the Susan G. Komen Foundation on OWMD, Milepointers seem to LOVE giving money for a chance to win cool stuff. Not wanting to break with tradition, we're happy to announce the

    SUPER AMAZING RAFFLE FOR WINNING AWESOME STUFF, SUPPORTING THE NEW MILEPOINT | KIVA MUTUAL FUND
    milepoint_mutal_fund_logo_342x60.png
    When
    - Tickets will be for sale throughout the KivaDo for those attending.
    - Tickets are for sale to those members not able to attend by donating HERE.
    - Draws for some small items will happen whenever the mood strikes.
    - The final draws will happen at the final reception Saturday night, March 10.

    How much?
    - Tickets will cost $5 USD each — donating $25 earns 5 tickets, donating $50 earns 10 tickets.

    Who will this support?
    100% of all money received will be donated to the new Kiva Mutual Fund which will be perpetually loaning the money to borrowers from Kiva.org. After all Kiva.org is doing for us this weekend, it's the least we can do — support their cause.

    What can I win?
    As of 11:21 MST on March 1, the following prizes are up for grabs.... with MORE TO COME by draw time.
    • One (1) custom engraved Apple iPad2 16 gb (Milepoint | Kiva Lending Team)
    • One (1) Apple iPad 32gb with a year of Gogo
    • Three (3) Gogo annual passes ($399 each)
    • Ten (10) Gogo goodie bags with ten gogo passes each ($250 each)
    • 2x United Club lounge (formerly RCC) passes
    • 1x United SWU (12/12 exp)
    • Continental PC lounge (now United Club) passes
    • 2x Air Canada lounge passes
    • $25 Amazon gift card
    • $25 Hyatt gift card
    • $100 Hyatt gift card
    • $25 SkyMall gift card
    • Introductory flight lesson (taught paid for by none other than the amazing jbcarioca!) *Location restrictions apply
    • Custom canvas prints
    • Bottle of Champagne & Belgian chocolates
    • Books ('Who Hates Who?' & 'Banker to the Poor' & 'The History of Hospitality')
    • Be the first to name the first loan from the new KLT Mutual Fund. That's right, this lucky winner will get the privilege of naming the first recipient of the Kiva Lending Team Mutual Fund. This first loan will always be part of our history. (sort of like throwing out the first ball at a baseball game!)
    • Limited edition Kiva Lending Team shirt (your choice, t- or polo)
    Hmm... I think there should be more prizes
    We agree! Whether you are attending the Do, or just want to add to the pile, if you have something to donate please start a conversation with kellio, IDGflygirl or myself and we'd be happy to add it to the above list.

    Are the tickets cash only or do you accept credit cards?

    Credit card payment will be available on site and the interchange fees will be donated, so Kiva will get 100% of your donation.

    Hi Junca, no, the winners do not need to be in attendance. We are working out the shipping details now as well as a way for non - attendees to purchase raffle tickets.

    Would you like to support Kiva by donating a raffle prize? Do you hate shopping or just don't know what to get?

    I'm here to help:)

    Start a convo with me. Let me know your budget, your top airline/card earning partners and if you have any preferences for the raffle prizes.

    I'll do some research and provide a few options for you to choose from. You would make the purchase yourself and if you are a non - attendee we can provide shipping directions for the DO.

    While I can't guarantee I'll get the most miles/points per dollar I'll certainly do my best!

    Trying to make a last minute route to the Do, but now also hoping you are able to work out some shipping details -just in case.

    not sure where you are located, but we have Attendees coming from all over the country (well, from around the world!), so if you cannot attend, we are sure there will be a mechanism for delivering your donations!

    I haven't had a chance (yet) to really get involved with Kiva, but would be happy to donate a gift card toward the raffle. Will send PM. Keep up the great work!

    Would you like to donate a raffle prize but unsure of what to get?

    Very steady reports here on MP that if you purchase a travel gift card or airline club passes with your plat/cent Amex card this will qualify for your yearly airline statement credit.

    What better way to give? Earn miles, donate to a great cause AND get reimbursed :D

    The American Express card forum here on MP has further details on which cards are eligible.

    Okay, raffle prize secured and I joined KIVA despite your warnings of its addictive powers. Woohoo. Now I just need to figure out the loan process when I have a minute. Baby steps. ;)

    YAY! Welcome to the Kiva Lending Team (KLT)! If there are any questions, please DO ask us - the General Info thread being the best place for information. When I first started, I looked at some of the bios or used the button options on the left side of the lend page to narrow down my choices.

    Thank you for joining our team.

    I must advise you that in another thread on this forum Mr. Petersen announced he has adopted us. Please make a screen shot of this. One day you may have a legitimate legal argument that he is now responsible for paying any expenses incurred for your daughter's education.
