UPDATE #3 - W passed the $15,000 goal well before my birthday! Whoohooo! In two years the team has raised over $15,150 - making a difference in lives around the world. Thank you!
UPDATE #2 - We hit the 10K goal in September 2010. Now we're on to $15,000. Join the team, make a loan and make a difference in an entrepreneur's life today!
UPDATE: Though the OFFICIAL challenge ended last June, the team continues to thrive and loan to entrepreneurs around the world. We surpassed our goal in October, 2009. Our current goal is $10,000 in loans.
Please join us and continue the good work this team is doing.
In celebration of my 50th birthday, my goal is to attract $5,000 in loans = 200 loans @ $25 (or more!). I'm a huge fan of Kiva and as an entrepreneur it's important to me to give back where and when I can. As part of an online community of entrepreneurs, my hope is that my colleagues will join me in this endeavor to help others who don't have the resources we have access to so they can build their businesses and changes the lives of the people they touch.
Passionate entrepreneurs who have big hearts and desire to help others succeed. Get more details about the Challenge and watch my video at the link below.
