IT IS DEFINITELY A BRAND NEW DAY! IT'S DEFINITELY A BRAND NEW YEAR!!!! WELCOME TO 2011 AND ALL THAT IT HAS IN STORE!!!

Yes, I'm quite aware that I have been very absent in recent months. I also know I said that would change. Try as I might, it did not happen in a timely manner. But, it does not mean that the TP Foundation has fallen by the wayside - it has not. I've just been delinquent in my posting duties. Sometimes real life just gets in the way, not allowing us to do the things that are the closest to our own hearts, but important all the same. I am no exception. With that said, I shall move on...

Where We Have Been

The TP Foundation was launched on April 1, 2009 and has been growing ever since. We began with a mere $13.50 from Google's AdSense Program. During 2009, Adsense earned $320.15 while 2010 brought in another $426.18 of usable revenue. Over the course of 2009, TP Foundation also incorporated in The Travel Unravelled and The Book Club blogs. Travel Unravelled produces $5.00 for every blog entry posted. The Book Club earns revenue via the Amazon Associates Program. (Follow a book review Amazon link, purchase something and TPF earns a few cents.) The 2009 Tour de France Competition and the 2010 $1 For Your (Accommodation) Review Drive brought in an additional $1350.00 worth of funds.

Overall, this may not seem like a lot. And, for most of us, in reality, it isn't. But, in that same reality, for those in need it means one hell of a lot. It means the difference between food on the table or going hungry. It means clothes for one's children, a roof over one's head and/or viable transportation. TP Foundation has tried to make loans to cover all of these needs and more. We have also tried to cover health care and education, though loan requests for those areas are few and far between. Our loans have spanned the globe.

Where We Are Going

The TP Foundation's goal is to be Goodwill Ambassadors - spreading "the wealth" to those less fortunate than ourselves. The main recipient of the funds is Kiva.org - a micro-financial organization. The funds from the Tour de France Competition were donated to the Hippo-Roller Project in Africa. As 2011 progresses, we will continue the Kiva loans. If another charitable opportunity arises, we will definitely take it under consideration. It IS all about giving and expecting nothing in return.

In the past, I have posted photos, links to the Kiva Entrepreneurs who have received our loans and connected them to the mapping system. As of January 4, 2011, TPF made it's 68th loan. Due to my delinquency, there are many photos and links to be made. Rather than spend the next several days doing all of that work and having poor Michael (Utrecht) double-checking the mapping, it will be easier to just direct you to the TPF page on Kiva. You do not have to join TPF or Kiva to view our accomplishments. You will be able to see who's received money and view their profiles. I will include the link with each new set of loans and blog posting. So, here are the links...

Bottom Line Stuff or WTPF Latest Local News Updates

Yes, this is the year end financial report you've all been waiting for - if you're an accountant. But, it's your money so you should be informed.

KIVA.ORG

As stated above, TPF has made 68 loans since we began in 2009, 28 of them during 2010. In that time, we have had a few delinquencies but no defaults. We did have one loan that was reimbursed because the lending institution was not up to the task. When they were re-approved by Kiva, the Entrepreneur had secured his funds from another source, withdrawing his loan request. Our repayments have equaled $1880.05 for the year. Our total being put back into Kiva (for 2010) has been $3121.07 with $1393.85 remaining to be loaned. That amount is now down to $593.85 after the 8 January 4, 2011 loans.

TRAVEL UNRAVELLED BLOG

Between August and December, the Travel Unravelled blog has earned $35.00 in revenue, bringing the yearly total up to $50. Okay, it's been a slow year for TU. But, you can help out... (Yup, promotional plug here...) In November, TU began the Travel Unravelled's Q&A Project. Follow the link to find out more. It's just answering a simple question but it does have a time limit. Not only does it help out fellow travelers, you get to express an opinion in 200 words or less.

Additionally, If you have tips and tricks for your fellow travellers, then join us in educating travellers worldwide. To get started, send our editors an email at unravelled [at] travellerspoint [dot] com. Let them know a bit about yourself, and maybe include some writing samples and ideas for entries. They will review your submission and, if you fit the bill, they will welcome you to the team. Each published article earns $5.00 for the TP Foundation and Kiva.

THE BOOK CLUB

Two book reviews were published, one in August and another in September.

Outwitting the Gestapo by Lucie Aubrac - Reviewer: Craggy

The Global Soul: Jet Lag, Shopping Malls, and the Search for Home by Pico Iyer - Reviewer: Greg Wesson

Again, info for new visitors:
Have you read a book lately? Would you like to tell someone about it? It doesn't need to be travel-related nor a good review. If you have read something that was absolutely not worth anyone's time, say so. But, join the "Club" and say something because:

The Book Club is affiliated with the Amazon Associates Program. Follow a link in a review, make a purchase (books, products, gift cards, etc.) and the TP Foundation earns a percentage of the purchase price.

If you would like to contribute a book review, please contact Peter, Eric or Gretchen (me). You can also get in touch with me through foundation [at] travellerspoint [dot] com.

ADSENSE PROGRAM

The AdSense Program saw total earnings of $426.18 for 2010. Pay outs took place in February, May, August and November. Our ending balance on December 31st was $56.77 which means 369.41 has made it's way to Kiva. Well, not exactly... It's more like $364.22 as the TPF bank account contains $4.16 and the TPF PayPal account contains a whopping $1.03. (Did I do the subtraction correctly? Yes, it appears I have. Just checkin'.) All in all, the program has been a success! It keeps getting better as more information is added to the wiki and new people join TP daily.

AMAZON ASSOCIATES PROGRAM

The Amazon Associates Program may not be as prolific as AdSense but it has generated income. The total earnings for last year were $24.53 with payments received in January, February and October. On December 31st, the balance in the account was $14.06. The January and February payments were from earnings generated during 2009. The 2010 balance will be paid out shortly. As stated above, the Associates program earns a few cents when someone uses a Book Club link to purchase something on Amazon. So, shop early and often and follow the links. (Earnings are not limited to just purchasing books.)

ADDITIONAL CONTRIBUTIONS

In 2009, TP held the Tour de France competition which earned $850.00 for the Hippo-Roller project in Africa. (A really good thing!) During the month of November (2010), TP conducted the $1 For Your Review drive to raise funds for Kiva. There were 481 reviews written so $481.00 for the Kiva coffers. In reality, the drive brought in $500.00 because Peter and Sam like 'nice neat round' numbers. TP Foundation is very happy they feel that way!! Thank you to all who participated and for the tidy contribution to the cause!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In retrospect, 2010 was quite a stellar year for the TP Foundation. Not in my wildest dreams did I think we'd have conducted as many loan transactions on Kiva as we have - it's amazing! Truly, they are gifts that keeps on giving, to use an old cliche. The Entrepreneurs who have been chosen are just as stellar - all repaying their loans so others can be made. It is with that sentiment that I thank each one of you who have been willing participants in this project. My sincerest gratitude to all. I do believe I can say that for the TP Foundation as a whole as well. Thank you!

Greetings Happy Campers

Yes, I'm back. (Didn't think it would be so soon, did you?!) Little secret - I pop in when least expected just to keep everyone on their toes! The sun is shining brightly. The birds are singing (loudly) and there is the slightest soft scent of freshly mown alfalfa wafting in through the windows. Smiles are returning to some faces too. (Thought I didn't notice?) I believe it's going to be a fine day in the TPF neighborhood. So, let's take a stroll around the grounds, as it were, and see who else may be out and about....

It does appear several people you really need to meet are on their way to work. Come on, let me introduce you. It won't take long at all.

WTPF LATEST LOCAL NEWS UPDATES

Oh yes, my friends, there is new news to be shared. Why not take a seat on the park bench which just happens to be under that big old shade tree...

KIVA.ORG

June came to a close with $495.80 in the Kiva coffer. The month of July has seen repayments of $153.32 from loan recipients (so far). The $100.00 in the PayPal account was also transfered to Kiva on July 24th - making for a grand total of $749.12 - WOOHOO! No, wait. That's wrong. We really have $549.12 as a balance. Why, you may ask? Well, you have just met the latest 4 Entrepreneurs on their way to work.

I do have some "not so happy" news too. We have 2 Entrepreneurs who have been delinquent in their July repayments. They have not defaulted, just haven't had the money to make this month's payment - yet. I am sure the sun will smile down on them soon. They deserve our patience.

To follow the TPF loans, checkout: Travellerspoint Foundation on Kiva.

TRAVEL UNRAVELLED BLOG

Nada. (Which means no earning for July - still 4 days left...)

But, now is a good time to let new readers in on the secret of the Travel Unravelled Blog.
It's very simple! And, it's an excellent project! Once upon a time, someone (we'll just call him Peter) had the wonderful idea of starting a blog where travelers (or travellers, depending on your whereabouts) could help other travelers be better travelers. Great concept! What we're lacking - travelers willing to write an article or two - okay, one (article, that is) would be grand. We've all learned something useful while wandering around our chosen parts of the world. Write about it! Submissions are easy and we make links and stuff back to you. Here's all that's required:

If you have an idea for a TU entry, please send an e-mail to unravelled [at] travellerspoint [dot] com. Include your subject, a short description of the material you would like to cover and a request to be added as an author. If possible, send a short sample of your entry. The TP Foundation earns $5.00 from every published submission.

THE BOOK CLUB

There has been one new submission to the Book Club during the month of July:

Letters From My Windmill By Alphonse Daudet - Reviewer: Irise Rain

Again, info for new visitors:

ADSENSE PROGRAM

Our current balance in the AdSense account (since last pay out up to this very minute in time) is: $114.92 and counting. The day ain't over.

AMAZON ASSOCIATES PROGRAM

We're rollin' in dough on this one. Okay, I kid. A lot. We have a current balance of $0.46 for July. It will grow. It's $0.46 more than we had before. Someone go shopping, please!!!

A Space In Time

Yes, more loans will be forthcoming. Until then, I have a date with Ten Years After (Alvin Lee), played on the real record player that still plays old vinyl, while I do the whole mapping the photos thing. Thank you for spending this time with us. And, that's just my two cents worth...

I Should Learn to Shut Up...

Back in April, I made an apology to everyone involved with the Foundation and it's workings. Little did I realize then I would be repeating myself a second time. But, here we are. I will spare you the repetitive rhetoric and simply say "I an very sorry for the many days between posts".

With these 4, TPF has made a total of 44 loans of $50.00 each. Currently, 16 recipients have repaid in full and we have 28 outstanding. There have been no defaults. Again, not too bad!

Following these distributions, $211.96 remained in the Kiva account. The month of May saw repayments of $104.76 and $179.08 was repaid in June for a grand total of $495.80 in the account.

On May 1, 2010 - AdSense released $103.86 and deposited that amount into the TPF bank account on May 25th. On June 9th, $100.00 was transferred to the TPF PayPal account. The current TPF bank account contains $13.86 with another AdSense payment to be deposited very soon.

AMAZON ASSOCIATES PROGRAM

During the months of May and June, no one purchased anything. So, no money in the TPF coffers this time around.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Anyway, stay tuned as another update is forthcoming. Yup, more loans and money talk. But, to pass the time, please enjoy this little concert by Los Lobos (from Los Lobos Goes Disney):

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true

Thank you for stopping by and that's just my two cents worth...

It's Been Awhile

I feel the need to take this time and apologize to all of you. It's been several weeks since our last Kiva contributions - for that, I am truly sorry. I realize most of us have "real world" things that get in our way sometimes and I am no exception. Unfortunately (for TPF) my "real world" stuff demanded my attention longer than anticipated. But, we're back in business. As of April 17th, four more Kiva loans have been made. I hope you like my choices this time around.

*On that note, if anyone has suggestions for the types of loans they would like to see, please let me know: foundation [at] travellerspoint [dot] org

WTPF LATEST LOCAL NEWS UPDATES

KIVA.ORG

As of April 17th, TPF has made 40 - $50.00 loans to Kiva Entrepreneurs. Of those, seven have been repaid in full. The remaining 33 recipients are in repayment mode at this time and, again, we've seen no loan defaults. In just over a year, we have been able to make loans totaling $2000.00 USD. Not bad for "a penny here and a penny there" project. (Okay, that's simply put but that's exactly how we started out last year.)

The Kiva project has truly become self-sufficient. Our loan repayments equaled $167.76 for Feb/Mar and $131.03 for Mar/Apr. (Repayments are made on the 15th of each month - in case you were wondering.) Between the repayments and funds received from AdSense and Amazon, our Kiva balance was $591.35 - that was until the last four loans were made... We're at $391.35 now. Oh look, we can make four more loans in two weeks! WooHoo!!! Seriously!!!! WooHoo!!! (I'm jazzed, what can I say... I know - shut up and get on with it.) :)

TRAVEL UNRAVELLED BLOG

I am sad to say there have been no new submissions to the TU blog.
Someone please send an article. I hate having to cry in public. Our editors are really, really, really bored. Send two or three. We'll make them look pretty. Pictures and everything. Include your own photos. We're easy - and at the moment- free!!!

If you have an idea for a TU entry, please send an e-mail to unravelled [at] travellerspoint [dot] com.

HIPPO ROLLER CHALLENGE

The Hippo Roller Challenge was hoping to have 20 million characters added to the Travel Guide (Wiki). That would have donated 63 rollers to villages in Africa. Alas, that goal was not reached. (We also had the offer of 2 rollers being donated by Michael Burn (Utrecht), out of his own pocket, had we reached the goal.) But, 17 million characters were added and now 7 Hippo rollers will be donated to the Hippo Water Roller Project.

Let's give all those who participated in the challenge a round of applause as they deserve our recognition!!!!

ADSENSE PROGRAM

On February 24, 2010 - AdSense transfered $124.45 to the TPF account. Since that pay out, the account now holds $90.22 and growing quickly.

AMAZON ASSOCIATES PROGRAM

On february 24, 2101 - Amazon transfered $96.52 to the TPF account. Since that pay out, the account now holds $6.88 and growing slowly. Could someone please click on some Book Club links and buy a few things? Please? Pretty Please???

IN THE END

Regardless of all my whining for more TU submissions and Book Club reviews, the Foundation has been doing a phenomenal job at earning funds and making Kiva loans. The Hippo Roller Project has also been a huge success. Thank you to everyone and that's just my two cents worth...

I wish I knew how, it would feel to be free
I wish I could break, all the chains holding me
I wish I could see, everything I had to see
Sing it loud, sing it clear, for the whole round world to hear

I wish I could share, all the love that's in my heart
Remove all the bars, that keep us apart
I wish you knew, how it would feel to be me
Then you'd see, and agree, everyone should be free

  • Thank you to the Derek Trucks Band for being my inspiration on soooo many levels. ;)

IT'S A CELEBRATION!!!!

And There's A Party Goin' On Around Here!!


View Edward Chuula Akanga & Pen Ra & Sour Mok & Chyibylova Aysalkyn's Group on Foundation's travel map.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO TRAVELLERSPOINT FOUNDATION!!!!!

Okay, so I've picked really obnoxious disco music for this one but I happen to like the song. Plus, at this particular moment in time, it fits. We have things to celebrate!

As I write this, it is still March 6th in my time zone. But, for the person who originally asked me to become involved in this project, it's already March 7th. (Thank you, Peter! And, I can't leave out Sam and Eric either as we all know TPF came about through Team Daams.) ;-)

For those who are not familiar with the background of the TP Foundation, March 7th marks the day the first Adsense earnings were contributed to the cause - a whole $13.50 - woohoo! It wasn't much but it's what we had to work with at the time. Since then, the Foundation has grown and prospered in many ways. Over time, funding through the Amazon Associates Program (via The Book Club), and the Travel Unravelled blog have been added. We also have earned a certain amount of income from competitions, such as generated by the Tour de France wiki article contributions. All in all, we have been able to make 36 - $50.00 (USD) loans over the past year. It took awhile to see the funds actually available for those first 4 loans, but it's been on-going process ever since.

Anyway, let me introduce you to our latest Kiva Entrepreneurs. I will finish with some really awesome stuff after the picture show. (Don't go away!)

WTPF LATEST LOCAL NEWS UPDATES

KIVA.ORG

Here comes the awesome news!

As stated above, TPF has made 36 - $50.00 loans over time. Of those, we have had 4 completely repaid and 32 are in repayment stage. We have not had one default, refund or any other hiccups. In fact, of the 4 who have finished their repayments - all were completed ahead of the scheduled time frame.

I have made a point of not choosing just those who would be the "safe bet" on repayments. Instead, I have made the choices across the board in regards to sector (agriculture, services, etc), region and need. The "ability to repay the loan" became a non-issue for me early on - a non-issue I plan to continue following. Having failed myself at times, I believe everyone (at least in my mind's eye) deserves a chance to succeed.
