Kiva Lending Team: TakingMonday
We loan because...
we're people for others
The TakingMonday Story
In 2009 a group of college students and recent grads started TM believing that if people across the world could find one piece of common ground, it would be a giant step in making the world a better place.
The idea is simple: A shared act of goodwill or health every week can create a sense of camaraderie in our fast-moving society.
That’s where TM comes in. One message sent out every week; one synchronized act from users across the world.
Social Networking with a Cause
While we all have different connections, a feeling of friendship surrounds our site, knowing users across the world are in-step with each other once a week.
As we evolved as a team, we decided it was important to make our site open to all things good. We reached out to different organizations to help promote their awareness. We found fitness and health writers to share their expertise. We recruited service members to write about their experiences helping people in other countries.
Something that was very important for all of us was laughter. We made sure our site had important information but not overlooking the fun of life.
And last, we wanted to ensure the image of goodwill we portrayed, was one of diversity. We ensured the members of our team were people with different beliefs, political stances and ethnic backgrounds all with one thing in common; the desire to make the world a better place.
