Announcing the Prosper Talk About the Taboo Campaign and Sweepstakes!

by Prosper on 03/8/10

Tell us your story and you could win $1000!!

We’re excited to announce the launch of the Prosper Talk About the Taboo campaign and sweepstakes as a way of encouraging us all to open up and share how our finances are shaping our lives.

Personal finance is one of the last remaining social taboos.  People share their deepest personal secrets and matters of the heart on blogs, Facebook, and Twitter.  Yet personal finance has been off limits – until now.

Prosper is launching Talk About the Taboo to help open the channels of conversation about debt reduction, personal finance and smart saving. Our members continually inspire us with stories of how they are using Prosper loans to better their lives, so we want to take this one step further and encourage more open conversation.

We’re opening the site for people to share their stories about how they’re tackling debt and celebrating milestones as they strive for better financial fitness. We’ll also assist them with finding guidance and practical help so they can more easily reach their financial goals.

So share your story and if you do, you’ll automatically be entered in the Talk About the Taboo Sweepstakes with a chance to win $1000!
