Howdy folks, I've been on the team and lurking in the forum for ~2 months. I'd like to suggest that those of us celebrating turkey day tomorrow throw an extra loan towards Kiva. I figure that either (a) somebody else is paying for our meal tomorrow, or (2) we are spending quite a bit more than $25 to pay for the meal for our families. Just a small way to give thanks that we can do what we're doing here...or perhaps consider it to be preemptive penance for the consumerism gluttony that many of us are going to commit on Friday. If you care to join me and would like a suggestion: I selected "ynes" which expires in under 5 days and (currently) have $150 remaining. It doesn't repay until June with one lump sum. I wouldn't normally fund this since I'm just starting this and the balloon repayment makes me a bit nervous... but it is Thanksgiving. Either way, Happy Thanksgiving!
