Yea, basically what Luke said. I've got big plans, but DC was the logical place to start. Start small, grow big imo.

Thanks for the inspiration to find a way to give to charity that I really can buy into I often don't give as I don't think enough gets through to those in need so love this

Put aside one buy-in for 200nl and done 8 loans, heck feels better than a badly timed spazz shove/call Wink

New idea - as opposed to me trying to track every little loan and the amount, I'm just going to ask at the end of the month for people to email me with their total $ loaned. Then $/25 = # of raffle tickets you will receive. This will free up some of my time to focus on expanding this idea.

I just purchased the 2 domains, www.buyintogiving.org and www.bi2g.org , and am currently working on finding a really sweet logo Smile

^ you got someone to do a logo?


I've contacted many people, but I haven't settled on one person yet. Just looking for the right logo at the right price (which is unfortunately small, I want to put most of my resources into the charity as opposed to ancillary efforts). If you know someone, forward this along Smile

This is such a great idea Tecmo. I think that a lot of online poker players gonna join this fabulous idea. I am pretty sure that many players wanted to give some to charity but did not really know how to do it. The format provided by Kiva fits extremely well your bright idea. Be prepared because I got the feeling that this project gonna raise beyond your expectations and from our sweet community. If you do it right in terms of marketing and communication, this thing can be a huge success worldwide. Please do not forget to represent DC well when you will be interviewed because its gonna happen Smile If at any moment, I could help you to develop this project, feel free to PM me. I just completed 4 loans. Now my task is to spread the world and recruit more people to join this !

I think that people who are reading this thread and are hesitating need to know how Kiva works exactly. This is where the concept is so unique imo. The picture at the bottom of this Internet page is really straightforward and meaningful. Welcome aboard shades.
