Congrats to Friends of Bob Harris, the Kiva lending team I nominally captain (although all I really do is cheerlead) on passing the $700,000 mark!
FoBH has also just entered Kiva's all-time top ten teams in sheer number of loans made, passing Kiva France, with a current total of over 25,000 loans to clinics, schools, and small businesses in more than 55 countries.
I look at those numbers and frankly can't quite even imagine this much generosity brewing up so quickly from so many people. I don't even know what to say about it. Awesome, wonderful, fantastic, and so on!
Onward! Team Norway, we're coming for you!
Friends of Bob Harris, the Kiva team growing out of my book project, went over the $250,000 mark this weekend!
To everyone involved, thanks! Your generosity is beyond belief.
Even more unbelievable, 13 hours into February, the team is ranked #1 Kiva-wide for the month (out of almost 17,000 teams), with more than $10,000 raised just so far today.
I really have almost nothing to do with this, other than being a bit of a cheerleader for some amazingly cool folks.
It's an honor. Truly.
