    YOUR MILLION DOLLAR KIVA PLEDGE
    Several MilePoint Kiva team members are now starting to make their million dollar pledge - and some have also made other pledges for when we reach a certain total loan amount on Kiva.

    There are also pledges being made for reaching $2M, and for the second Money Bomb!

    OTHER PLEDGES
    In addition to the above pledges,
    • miles and smiles will howl at the moon when we reach $1M! Tickets will start at $100 in new loans just to get within hearing range. Probably $1000 in new loans for front row seating.
    • For each person who follows FrequentMiler on Twitter and re-tweets one of his posts, he'll make a Kiva loan. You can find him on Twitter: http://twitter.com/FrequentMiler
    • iolaire will invest $1,000 in new money for each of the next FIVE people who invest $1,000 (or more) in new money to Kiva. See this post for rules. (all done!)
    • kiwi will add an extra loan for each MP team member who pledges 1 or more extra loans at $1M
    • canucklehead will loan $100 extra in honor of each newborn baby as soon as the announcements of his brother plus a fellow MP'er are made! (+1) ($300)
    • milchap is expecting a new grandson in November and will pledge $100 in his honor.
    • aussieflyer will loan $25 when we hit $100k in pledges.
    • If MP team passes $1 million lent by 31 December 2011 kiwi will loan an extra $1,000
    • if we hit $1M by the end of the year, FrequentMiler will lend $1000
      If we hit $1M by the end of Nov, FrequentMIler will lend $1500
      If we hit $1M by Thanksgiving day, FrequentMiler will lend $2000
    • To celebrate his birthday this month, Horseguy will loan an extra $100 at each multiple of $10,000 the team passes this month.
    HOW DO I REGISTER MY PLEDGE?
    Post your pledge in this thread and I will add it to the spreadsheet below or the list above. We have room for a lot more! Please remember that it's not the amount that counts - it's your participation.

    We currently have $1M pledges for $103,285 - have you made your pledge yet? Please join us and have fun! :D

    I will watch happilt as miles and smiles howls. It should be a good spectator event.:)
    We all must remember taht we must get to $500,000 before we get to $1,000,000. So, I will also lend an additional $5,000 when we reach $500,000, as well as attend the DO!

    Maybe I should charge admission to my howl.
    Considering what a special event it will be, tickets will start at $100 in new loans just to get within hearing range.
    probably $1000 for front row seating.
    I hope I have a few full moons for practice before we hit $1,000,000 in loans. I may have to practice at the new moon, too.

    Here's an idea to try to get us up to $1M faster. I recently signed up for Twitter and I'd love to build up my network, so how about this:

    For each person who follows me on Twitter and re-tweets one of my posts, I'll make a Kiva loan. You can find me here on Twitter: http://twitter.com/FrequentMiler

    and hopefully I'll see you on Twitter too!

    Update: I am now also accepting liking me on Facebook as a reason to add another loan. And, yes, you can "double dip" :)

    Note: depending on how my finances go, and how well this incentive works, I may have to stop (or pause) the offer at 600 loans.

    I'm sure many of us will pay a premium to hear you howl, miles and smiles :)

    First post is updated. Keep posting your pledges, and I'll add them to the first post!

    Wow! Horseguy started a pledge-a-thon, didn't he? Thanks to Horseguy for getting us going with lots of pledges. Thanks to everyone, including those I have missed here, for making these wonderful pledges!
    Will we make $300,000 still this month to get wijomas started with pledge deliveries? I hope so!

    Following and re-tweeted.
    Major kudos on your offer and good luck with all your endeavours.

    What goes around, comes around...
    And you're definitely giving a lot to go around...

    Probably not the right thread but where do I find the info to sign up/donate.
    Great to see people giving back...

    You know what, ill pledge $100 @ 500k and 1M...
