Meet Rex Lancaster: Our GuiNness
Record Holding Traveling Teddy Bear


Our little bear successfully traveled the globe for a year to break the Guinness Book of World Records for the title of 'Most Traveled Teddy Bear'. Little Rex traveled 277,442 miles and was able to visit all 7 continents (in just under 8 months)! He broke the existing record by over 72,000 miles! Guinness has sent his 'official certificate' and our world weary little bear is sitting pretty in the office working hard to make sure you can travel in little Rex style! While Little Rex is in semi-retirement, pondering what his next travel record will be, he has been busy spreading his love to some of the people and countries that he was fortunate enough to visit during his travels through Kiva. He has given micro loans for projects in Kenya and Uganda, the "Stans", Asia and South America through Kiva. Rex has a budding portfolio with 100 loans to date. Rex invites you to join him in giving back to the places you have visited!
