    Double your money in just days. How -- join the Kiva Milepoint team at at kiva.org and lend (not give) $25 to a deserving individual or group and Randy will put a second $25 in your Kiva account in recognition of your initial loan. Learn about MilePoint's support of Kiva at http://milepoint.com/forums/threads...ing-team-on-kiva-org.2185/page-34#post-469906. To join the Milepoint team join Kiva here: https://www.kiva.org/register and when you have joined Kiva, use this link to join our team: http://www.kiva.org/team/milepoint

    Randy's offer is a limited time offer so join today. As of Tuesday Randy's offer was still open.

    The details are here:
    http://milepoint.com/forums/threads...bership-drive-for-our-kiva-org-support.10125/

    In essence .....
    Be one of the first 200* to join the milepoint Kiva lending team in May and milepoint will match $25 of your loan! Any by "match"—we really mean that we will actually give you a $25 Kiva credit to loan and when that loan is paid back, that $25 is yours to keep and loan again and again.

    So join Kiva, double your initial $25 investment and feel good knowing that you have made a difference in someone's life.

    Yea, take my money—I encourage you to become part of this team ... you'll also have access to one of these personalized Avatars like mine. Charge the $25 loan to your mileage earning credit card, OK, your point earning new Hyatt credit card.

    I think others have reported that the credit appears shortly in their Kiva account; look under your profile on the Kiva website. You should be able to pick a second loan to fund as soon as the credit is recognized by the Kiva system.

    Thanks for joining the team. As Tom Hanks would say ... "You've Got (Kiva) Mail"*
    * from the semi-classic 1998 Tom Hanks movie of the same title with the infamous product placement of the trademark AOL saying at the time ... "You've Got Mail." Whew.

    Welcome to MilePoint and thanks for joining our Kiva team. It is a fun way to put some money to use. My goal is up invest $1,200 and then as repayments come in to reinvest. $1,200 is 48 loans and assuming an average life of 24 months, I will then be able to make two new loans a month just from the paybacks.

    Notice I said invest not loan. Kiva dollars are an investment for a better live for not only the borrower but all who benefit from his success. That often is an entire community and ultimately the world, us included.

    So set a goal, ignore it and keep lending.

    Good for you. Others should take the offer up while still before it expires at 200 new members or end of May.

    MILEPOINT MONDAY --- Join the Kiva Lending Team with a chance to win an IPad. Details Here.

    The milepoint Kiva Lending Team has a membership drive during May to add 200 new members to the team. They are over half-way there and if they meet the goal, a random member of the team will win an iPad. 200 new members means roughly a 1-in-200 chance at an iPad (more than 200 members may join the team during May so the odds amy vary), and you'll be doing great things when you empower others by loaning money through Kiva. And, you can earn frequent flyer miles when funding your loans with a miles/points earning credit card. Join the team today, help others and maybe you could be helping yourself to a new iPad*.

    * You really can make a difference this time because the offer of an iPad to a random member of the milepoint Kiva Lending Team is only valid if the team makes their membership goal.
