    As I write this it is 10/10 here and 11/11 is remembrance day.

    To kick off the pledges for MPKLT $7 million, I pledge

    a) one loan for every MPKLT member who makes a $7 million pledge by 11 November 2013; and

    b) a second loan for every MPKLT member who makes a $7 million pledge of at least $200 by the end of Kiva Do 2 (ie 27 October 2013); and

    c) an extra $500 if any MPKLT member makes a $7 million pledge for additional lending based on number of other pledges (similar to or better than (a) above in my opinion) by 17 October 2013.

    I'm in for $100 plus I'm in for another $100 for the Mutal Fund which is pledging as well. The Mutual Fund can participate, no? :)

    Will add a loan for each of the first 20 folks to make a pledge.

    Sill at the Kiva U Summit at the moment, might be setting up a fund for seed loans at various K-12 schools (so the pledge above has to be pretty close-ended).

    There are 10 pledges other than me on the list at current, so I just fulfilled half of my pledge a little early ...

    Bump.

    It looks like the MP Kiva team will reach $7 million within the next month.

    Not quite close enough for our third anniversary, by the look of it, but very close. It's already been quite a month and the credits aren't due until Monday!

    I just fulfilled my pledge (threw in an extra loan to round it out!)

    Great job team....funny RP and I were discussing how we were getting close to the $7M mark, we both thought in March but this team continues to set a blazing trail!
