    YOUR FIVE MILLION DOLLAR KIVA PLEDGE
    The Milepoint Kiva lending team members are now starting to make their five million dollar pledge!

    HOW DO I REGISTER MY PLEDGE?
    It's easy! Just post your pledge in this thread and I will add it to the spreadsheet below at regular intervals. We have room for a lot more, but please pledge per $100k increments. We all have different means, so please remember that it's not the amount that counts - it's your participation!

    So, what are you waiting for? Add your pledge today! :D

    As always, please notify me if there are any errors that cost you more less than expected. ;)

    I will pledge my usual 25. We should easily reach that goal by February, 2013.

    That is great with us! every small amount counts, but even better, your contribution will be matched by jbcarioca (all pledges made in June, max $50K) and kiwi ($25 per unique pledge), so in fact, its now $75 in loans! Amazing! :D

    I'm in for $100.

    I'm sure I'll have a couple of months to save it up. :D

    Only a day since first post, and already we have $5m pledges for (up to) $53,000.

    - A very generous pledge match by jbcarioca!
    - skyvan's $25 will in reality become $75 as canucklehead pointed out - every little counts!
    - YULtide must be delirious thinking he has as much as a couple of months to save for his pledge :p

    I have a question, if I pledge on behalf of family members who have MP Kiva accounts, will this also be matched?

    Great, they are all managed individually (except for the 7 month old who at present would prefer to chew on his giraffe than select loans) but I am more than happy to put their XMas money in there! ;)



    (hopefully kiwi will make 1 loan for each one of these accounts:D )

    If you make the pledge in the name of your individual family member, e.g. CH bro, CH sis it would seem that the generous Kiwi would match their pledge along with jbc's. Whereas, if you make a Canuckle family pledge under one name it will only take one match from Kiwi.

    In the spirit of generosity that this group has shown I will parrot my sheep loving friend in the other hemisphere and make a $ 25.00 loan for every person on the MPKLT who pledges a loan to be fulfilled at the $ 5 million mark.

    Of course to annoy Kiva I will make and fund each loan separately to push the limits of my relationship with them and their relationship with PayPal.:)

    You, annoy anyone?:confused: Never happen; you're such a pushover, a llama in sheep's clothing, perhaps?

    Perhaps an appropriate avatar would cheer you up. Your creative energy levels seem to have ebbed lately. Has the Miami beautician you loaned to months ago continued to spurn your requests for a private styling in stall 4?
