Update on Raffle Proceeds and Our Kiva Account

Hi all! We thought we'd share some information regarding all of your generous donations to Kiva. If you want more information on what Kiva is/does, you can read about it here.

As of January 2014, the Wincon account has every penny in use, which equates to just over $4000.00 loaned out to 253 individual recipients. This includes all of the raffle money raised in Vegas in 2013, as well as re-loans of funds from previous years that have already been repaid to us. (Yes, your money keeps on giving—again and again!)

All of our loans have been made to women. We have granted loans to women in 42 different countries (including the U.S.), for many diverse uses, including things like clothing manufacture, agriculture, retail businesses, beauty salons, business schools, anti-poverty efforts, green technology, scientific innovation, and many more.

If you want to know more about how your funds are being used, check out our Kiva profile.

Whether you've been an item donor or a raffle participant over the years, thank you so much for your generosity. You have—and will continue to—change the lives of women all over the world through your kindness!

And thanks again to Chris (girlguidejones) for taking responsibility for the raffle and overseeing the Kiva account this year and moving forward.
