    Team,
    In 1492 Columbus sailed the Atlantic and discovered a new world with many Kiva loans. In honor of this US holiday, lets join up and kick off a new lending marathon, running until Columbus Day on Monday, October 13, 2014. During the marathon your MilePoint captains and crew will match up to $28,000 in new lending! (The match are loans picked by captains and crew in their own personal accounts.)

    Here is a list of countries in the area that Columbus discovered:
    http://www.kiva.org/lend?countries=BZ
    http://www.kiva.org/lend?countries=CO (has loans)
    http://www.kiva.org/lend?countries=CR (has loans)
    http://www.kiva.org/lend?countries=DO (has loans)
    http://www.kiva.org/lend?countries=SV (has loans)
    http://www.kiva.org/lend?countries=HT (has loans)
    http://www.kiva.org/lend?countries=GT (has loans)
    http://www.kiva.org/lend?countries=HN (has loans)
    http://www.kiva.org/lend?countries=MX (has loans)
    http://www.kiva.org/lend?countries=NI (has loans)

    As of today our lending our team's impact is at $8,435,800, once team lending hits $8,463,800 the Captain and Crew match will start.

    Bon Voyage,
    iolaire

    I'll add a couple of loans. I'm staying short and with cost to borrower of less than 40% PY. I was the third Milepointer on this one -- http://www.kiva.org/lend/768300. Join me.

    Congratulations team, on Monday we sailed past our $28,000 new loan goal for the Sailing the world Captain and Crew matching promotion with $8,470,000 in total loans. And even more impressive by today (Thursday) we are up to $8,488,350! That means since the promotion started on Saturday we have lent $52,550! The Captain and Crew will now start trickling in their match obligations.

    Please keep up the lending, we are off to a strong start! I'll give periodic updates until the promotion end on Columbus Day on Monday, October 13, 2014.

    And thank you!

    Congratulations team, during the Sailing the world Captain and Crew matching promotion period we load $150,550! The Captain and Crew will be working hard to fulfill our pledges of $28,000 in new loads - some of us have started already.
    Thank you, iolaire

    Life gets busy. I sometimes have a hard time keeping up with existing threads let alone new ones. I tend to follow the "please help" thread. Perhaps next time a quick shoutout in that one about anything new like this?

    Unless of course I'm the only one with this problem. :D

    Its a fair suggestion, I did stick it on the kiva lounge thread, but I can spam the forum in a few more places next time :)

    With the loan matching today, that will make a huge impact!

    Thanks to the Captain and Crew for your generosity. :cool:
