Brag? Pay-pal froze my account because of the suspiciously large amounts of money going through it (I never use pay-pal but it's the only way to get money on Kiva Poke Tongue).



I'm wondering if my bank calls me about "duplicate transactions" as I did 4, then 4 again a couple of minutes later... same exact amount total, same vendor...

Did they? I never got a response to my e-mail ...



I'll try... but I'm shamed enough as it is... I didn't even read the thread down as far as Tackleberry's one... just got overexcited and jumped straight in.

EDIT: sent.

Hey everyone,

I'm thinking of adding a page on the website featuring some of the BI2G members, stating why each chose to join the team. If you could post in here or PM me with a short write-up detailing why you chose to join and what motivates you to give, that would be greatly appreciated!

Someone also gave me the idea to pool our efforts and pick 1 big loan to which we could all contribute. Then we could post it on the home page as our "featured loan" or something like that. Not sure exactly how to do that, but I thought it was a pretty good idea.

If you have any good ideas, let me know!

Hey Guys,

I love the idea of this! I just joined, although I can't give right now (unless someone knows how I can give my frozen monies that's in my ewalletxpress account.) I just wanted to post in the thread to make sure I get any updates.

If anyone needs to do a site transfer to give, just PM me. I can ship a Kiva gift card in exchange for a FT or PS transfer. I realize this might not be the case for you HotDiggy, just letting everyone know Smile

I just like the idea. It's not really charity. It helps enterprising people in poorer communities carve out opportunities for themselves.




Plus when I saw that this community of professional and amateur gamblers was going into the loansharking business I thought, I gotta get some of that action. We help people, but they have to pay us back or we get to fuck their shit up. I don't mean like too much, but you can't let someone make you a bitch. Once the word gets around that team DC are bitches we lose our territories. One or two baseball bat sized warnings early on nips all that in the bud. Just suggesting.


Feel free to just use the first part... Smile

Hey, I got a reply very quickly... they've credited my loans to our team... so your one Tackleberry might've gotten lost but maybe they did it...

MY reason for joining:
I am a lucky and happy person to be on the sunny side of life with the chance to generate some good income. I feel it´s my deepest responsibility to share this luck with those on the world that are less privileged. Kiva is another piece in my puzzle to help other people and I like the idea to give some support to others helping themselves.

Could somebody please be so kind to look over my grammar (no native speaker, coming from Germany) and feel free to correct it? Thanks in advance!

As a poker player, I always wanted to give some back to charity but I did not really know how to do it. Kiva provides not only a great format to achieve my personal wish but also allowed me to become a member of a worldwide team with the same goal. 1 buy-in/month (4 loans) is nothing for me but it definitely can change life of others. Stop hesitating and join our team today !

You can obv edit my text if needed Smile

KIVA offers the possibility to help those less fortunate in the world. We're privilidged to live our lives as we do, play poker as a hobby or as our main source of income. Loaning 1 buy-in a month is not life changing for any of us but it is life changing money to others: so help!

Also changed "those in the world that" to "those in the world who." Minor adjustment that most aren't even aware of, but when dealing with THINGS, you use that, when dealing w/ people, use who. Smile
