Imagine all the loans

While some of the teams I've featured have been formed for fun or goofiness, this week's Kiva team is grounded in high ideals. And Mother Darling would love it. Team Lennon Lovers gives because: "John Lennon believed in peace and love. There is no better way to show it." With only two members, Team Lennon Lovers could use some help making dreams come true. Their loans so far have gone to food, retail and manufacturing. Imagen loaning!

Hey, Zoe, you can give

While giving and lending can be done by anyone, this week's Kiva Team is specifically for you...Zoe. If your name is Zoe, great news: Team Any Zoe wants you to know you can make a difference. Big Zoes, little Zoes, doesn't matter. Team Any Zoe currently has 7 members and has loaned almost $2300. Most of that has gone to food businesses. So if you are a Zoe, or a Zoey, or love a Zoe or want to impress a Zoey, sign up!

Sweep the leg...of poverty

Just when I think I've seen the coolest Kiva lending team, something else comes along. Something like this: Team Cobra Kai Karate School. With 11 members, it has raised just under $600. Team Cobra Kai gives because: "We want to put poverty in a body bag". Now don't you want to join Johnny and his minions in showing poverty no mercy? Do it, do it now.

"heal thyself"

Not a BIG thing, but Pickles did something so cute today I just HAD to share it.
I like to put notes in Pickles' lunch. "have a great day" "you're awesome" "i love you" the usual. This morning as she was packing her lunch, Pickles thanked me for the note I put in her lunch yesterday. Then she thought for a second before announcing "I'm gonna write MYSELF a note".

My first thought was "Go On, Girl!!" She's got a head start on life to be one of those people who encourage THEMSELVES, cheer THEMSELVES up, give THEMSELVES a pat on the back. Pickles, my dear, congratulations on learning early on to be a person who "writes themselves a note".

Too Sexy not to loan

So I think it's becoming quite clear that Kiva lenders can find just about any reason to give. Don't believe me? I submit to you Team Women Who Lend to Shirtless Men. I think the name says it all. These gals give because: "We can't resist". Team WWLtSM has 28 members has loaned just over $5500. I'm willing to bet there are plenty of shirtless men who need your help. If you're a woman and you support the shirtlessness of men, this is the team for you!
