FlyerTalk could raise $5m in Kiva loans

We surpassed our goal of $5,000. Congratulations to all who have lent through the FT team and contributed to meeting our goal!

How about we add a few zeros to that number? Here is a global challenge for all of FlyerTalk:

If every member of FlyerTalk.com (all 197,793 members) makes at least one $25 loan on their credit card of choice through our Kiva lending team we can generate:

$4,944,825 in loans
$98,896.50 in cashback rebates (@ 2%) or
at least 4,944,825 frequent flyers miles

Right now the biggest team on Kiva has loaned a measly $500,000.

The people on this thread are off to a great start, but this concept needs to spread to every member of the FT community. Everyone on FT could use 25 miles or a little cashback, so what is stopping FT from dominating the Kiva leaderboard? As our team motto says, "We want to fight global poverty while earning miles." Let's get earning.
