Valentine’s Day Loan-A-Thon is tomorrow!

We are only one day away from the Valentine's Day Loan-A-Thon, and I was thinking that it may be a better idea if we all start lending at the same time as opposite of starting at noon your local time. Most of the team members are on USA central standard time, so I'd like to set the starting time to February 13 at noon CST, ending on February 15, at noon CST. Since we have members spread over several time zones, I'm publishing the equivalent start/end time for you convenience:

I hope I'm not making things more complicated !!

Remember, during the Loan-A-Thon, write a notification on the team's Kiva page when you have completed a loan so I can issue you a "ticket" for the lottery, otherwise it'll be difficult for me to track down who did a loan.

Our goal is to reach the $10,000 loaned mark, have some fun and to show some love to those who are less fortunate than us.
