Kiva Atheists Have Now Loaned Out Over $10,000,000!

Earlier this month, the Atheists, Agnostics, Skeptics, Freethinkers, Secular Humanists and the Non-Religious group on microlending website Kiva hit a major milestone, having loaned out over $10,000,000:

To be sure, it doesn’t mean they’ve given out a total of $10,000,000. It only means they’ve loaned money to people, received some (or most) of it back, and then reloaned it. Still, though, *huge* accomplishment.

The 24,143 members of the Kiva atheist group have given out more money than any other group on the website. (The Kiva Christians are in second place, having loaned out just over $6,300,000.)

If you’re not already a member of the group, you can join right here.
