The winners of my Kiva $25 Gift Card Contest were selected a little over a week ago. One of the GCs was claimed immediately and put to great use. Due to the other winner not claiming his card, I have selected a new winner.
The new winner is Commet #3: Maxi Leyerer who wrote “brilliant idea!!!”
(Please comment on this post with your e-mail address to claim the gift card)
I hope that Maxi will put the Kiva card to great use and have fun deciding who to give his loan to!

I posted a bit about the Milepoint Kiva Lending Team the other day.
You can read the post here.
I think Kiva is a really interesting and great non-profit. Their efforts are helping people all over the world become successful due to the generosity of it’s members.
Once you make a loan, you will see progress updates from Kiva through your
e-mail. As the borrower repays the loan, the money becomes available in your account. You can then fund another loan, donate it to Kiva or withdraw it for something else. There is a 98.87 repayment rate for ended loans.
I joined the Milepoint Kiva Lending Team recently. Milepoint has been deeply involved in Kiva and has made a huge impact with it’s efforts.
Here are some stats about the impact of Milepoint:
- Number of Team Members: 584
- Number of Loans: 32,016
- Number of Loans Per Member: 54.8
- Total Amount Loaned: $1,510,875

To commemorate my one year anniversary (2/8/12) as a member of Milepoint, I decided to join the Milepoint Kiva Lending Team this morning. I heard about Kiva a few years back and always thought it seemed like a great idea but never got around to joining.
Some of you might ask what Milepoint and Kiva are…
Here is a little about them:
Milepoint is an online frequent flier forum. It’s a place to talk about just about anything related to travel, flying and airline miles. The content is created by members and the conversations and forums can be very friendly and helpful. You can check it out here.
Kiva is a non-profit organziation that allows individuals to make loans as small as $25 to help create opportunity around the world. You can choose who you loan to- it can be a farmer in Tajikstan or a housing loan for someone in Bolivia. You can check out Kiva and join the Milepoint lending team here.
I haven’t decided who I will give my loan to as of yet. I plan to narrow it down to three loans and then make a decision which I will post to my blog.
If anyone wants to help me out and make a suggestion, please leave a comment to this post!
How would you like to design your own Boeing Dreamliner?
Designing the Dreamliner is a lot of fun and can be addicting!
The site gives you a 360 degree view of the plane which is really neat.
You can choose different colors, use paintbrushes, add various Boeing graphics & add text to customize your Dreamliner. You can also change the background for the page.
When you are done designing your Dreamliner, you can add your creation to the gallery. All submissions are subject to approval & require a minimum 24 hours to post.
