The Go Game's Kiva.org FUNdraiser
Join the Kiva Community in San Francisco on May 23rd! The Go Game is an all-out urban adventure game using cell phones and flip cameras. Out teams will compete by following clues on wireless devices and hints planted in unlikely places, which guide teams to wacky missions. This game is the "Kiva FUNdraiser Movie Game." Teams will create a short movie as part of their missions.

100% of the registration fees ($30) will benefit the Kiva Fellows Program to help train our volunteer Kiva Fellows who spend 10 weeks to 1 year working with microfinance banks around the world on their own dime.

Space is limited so register soon!

Spread the word through Facebook here.

*If you don't live in the San Francisco Area, you can help cover the cost of the Go Game (allowing 100% of the registration fees to go straight to Kiva). Karl Long and www.tcritic.com is matching your donations.
