While our lives as frequent flyers and collectors of frequent flyer miles and points rewards us in so many ways, it is outside these forums where we get our chance to pay it forward."

" Well, another 363 days have past since that statement, and we can safely say: "We've come a long way baby!" 600+ members 32,000+ loans $1.5 Million+ lent A Kiva fellow sponsored A Kiva DO organized and ready for full attendance Lots of fun, information and inspiration shared And we're just getting started...............
