Just a mention that Team P2P has broken through $2.3 million dollar mark in loans. We will be posting our 2013 Summary shortly on our site and in this thread.

Thanks for all your support,

My dear friend who has helped me through seven years of issues passed away from cancer on December 21st, 2013. Myself and two other friends (Joanne C. and Wendy C.) set up a memorial fund for through http://Poverty2Prosperity.org/ (P2P) - The Susanne Chassay Memorial Fund (http://poverty2prosperity.org/news.html#scmf) which will focus on loans in Asia and expiring loans (mostly matching loans that are mentioned on the Team P2P message board) as way of honoring her memory and keeping her alive in my memory through perpetual loaning. She was always trying to get me to feel more accomplishment and pride in my endeavors with P2P (and Saabnet.com) and other projects I had done.

fyi,

That's 45 people. Way to go folks - that loan was not available for very long so it was great to see so many KFers hop on it in short order! Here's the history so far:

Lily's Loan: 32 (http://www.kiva.org/lend/49888)
July 2008: 62 (http://www.kiva.org/lend/54280)
July 2009: 85 (http://www.kiva.org/lend/120703)
July 2010: 45 (http://www.kiva.org/lend/206884)

I'll be awarding one of the gift certificate prizes later today and the other tomorrow.

Thanks,

Edit: The loan is now raised.  Yay! CherylS for getting in under the wire!

Wow, that was fast and even though we didn't get close to breaking the record, I am still impressed that we got, by my quick initial count, 42 KivaFriends.org lender avatars. I know there will be a few stragglers who can still put KivaFriends.org under their avatar, so I won't do the final count until tomorrow evening.

Good job folks!

At what time will the snapshot for the record be taken?  Right after the loan is fully funded? 

In the past I've waited a day for stragglers to add KivaFriends.org to their lender avatar so I assume about the same this time as well.

You need to edit the location that shows on your lender page. Changing the location in your account will not do the trick.

Ah, of course, thanks for the pointer!

Nonny (or anyone else), I see now that KivaFriends.org is showing up under your lender avatar. Did you put http://KivaFriends.org in the City field under My Account/Mailing Address? I've put mine in there, but it continues to show my old city info under my lender avatars.

Thanks,

-Scott

Okay, here is some fun news already on our record breaking loan. An anonymous donor has generously donated a $25 gift certificate to be awarded at the end of the attempt to a random KF participant, so look, now this loan might not even cost you!

In addition, I'm going to join in with the anonymous donor and offer my own $25 gift certificate to a random KF participant as well to be awarded at the end!

Woo hoo!
