Global Celebrations for Kiva’s 6th Birthday!

Please join the Kiva Community this October in one of the 10 participating
cities and help them celebrate 6 years of making loans to deserving
entrepreneurs around the world!  Come meet Kiva enthusiasts in your community and celebrate the global movement that is connecting microfinance lenders and borrowers across the globe.

Each city celebration will provide lending stations and the opportunity to make Kiva loans on-site, as well as information about Kiva for new lenders.  So, it’s a wonderful opportunity to invite friends and family who have never heard about Kiva.  The celebrations will be hosted by Kiva Lenders in the following cities across the globe: Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Chicago, Pittsburgh, New York, Toronto, Montreal, London, Paris, and Melbourne!

They will also be filming Kiva community members at the celebrations for the recently launched “Why I Kiva” campaign.  Why I Kiva is a very simple idea: members of the Kiva community post videos explaining why they lend with, borrow through, work for, donate to, or otherwise participate in the Kiva
community. You can go to http://www.youtube.com/kivamicrofunds to see what other Kiva community members are saying about why they Kiva.  Submit a video yourself!  Unable to attend one of these
city events?  You can still celebrate virtually by making a loan attributed to one of the hosting lending teams (Be sure to join the team before making your loan!)
