Kiva Go Game Event in London!

Calling all Kivans in the UK!

The Go Game Event in SF was such a success that we’ve decided to host a similar event in a secret location near Leicester Square in Central London.

The more people that participate, the more money we can raise for Kiva, so help us tell all of your family and friends in the UK! It’s great fun for a great cause, and all profits go to the Kiva Fellows Program. We’re also celebrating the return to London of our friend Kieran Ball from his Kiva Fellow position in Cambodia!

What: Go Game for Good in support of Kiva

Where: Secret Location near Leicester Square

When: 2pm, Saturday, 15th August

Sign up now to create a team, join an existing team, or be placed on a team of other players. Once you’ve registered, you’ll receive an email a few days before the event with more details, including the secret starting location.

Spots are limited so sign up soon!
