Kiva Atheist Group Closes in on 25,000 Members…

Last 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.

Now, they’re about to hit another milestone:

A lending team you’re a member of, “Atheists, Agnostics, Skeptics, Freethinkers, Secular Humanists and the Non-Religious” is super close to hitting a big milestone: 25,000 members. You’re less than 500 people away from hitting that goal, and we’d love to help you get there.

Kiva has $10,000 for matching loans of your team’s choice — but only if you can reach the goal of 25,000 team members by midnight on March 31st, 2013. So help spread the word and invite your friends today!

So we have a week to find 500 new members of the group. It shouldn’t be that difficult to recruit people into a great cause — I’ve been a member for years and it’s really one of the easiest ways to be generous there is. And with a $10,000 incentive? Get your friends to sign up now. If you use this link, I’ll get an additional $25 to donate, too.

    This is a great organization. I’ve been lending for years through Kiva..around 70 loans total and I every loan has been paid back. This is a great organization and the benefits to the loan recipients is well worth missing out on the 0.25% interest that my local bank pays on savings. :)

      guess I should have finished editing before calling it great twice. But it’s true. ;) Please consider joining our team folks.
