Last chance to help Kiva earn $25k through Wells Fargo’s RSI Challenge!

We need your help out there!

Friday is the last day of the Wells Fargo RSI Challenge. Wells Fargo will donate $1 to Kiva (up to $25k) for each person who gets his or her Retire Secure Index (RSI) score. So far nearly 2000 of you have done so, but we know we can do better.

It's simple and takes less than a minute.

If you haven’t already, all you have to do is go here and click on the link to answer nine easy questions about how you save and when you plan to retire. The RSI calculator will give you a score that helps you understand how ready you are for retirement.

Our goal is 25,000 but we’ve still got a way to go. Rally your friends and let’s try to get as many as possible before this Friday, August 28th!
