Thanks indeed, and if by any chance if want to invite
someone from your
team, (for our case Iran), would it be possible for WMDE to fund such trip?
so we could organize something bigger.

As previously announced, the sixth birthday of Wikidata will happen
around October 29th, all around the world: local groups, communities, can
organize their own event around Wikidata. Meetup or workshop, talk or
editathon, now is the good time to start thinking about what you want to do.
Wikidata's sixth birthday
<https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Sixth_Birthday> and its talk
page is the main place where you can find information about organization,
funding, and discuss with others.
As mentioned in the past, WMDE can help with providing advice on
organization and communication, and can send Wikidata swag to your group
before the event. If we want to get all of this ready for you before the
end of October, we need some buffer time. That's why I'd like to inform you
about two things:
1. A *call for all organizers* or people thinking about organizing a
birthday celebration, will take place on August 28th. This is the
opportunity to chat with me, but also people from other local groups, about
your ideas, your questions, your needs.
- Date: *August 28th*, 18:00 to 19:00 (UTC+2, Berlin time)
- Meeting link: Google Meet <https://meet.google.com/bxb-kgsa-tfu>
(yes, it's Google. If you're deeply unhappy about this, you can write to
and we'll find another solution)
2. The *deadline for requesting Wikidata swag is September 7th*.
After this date, we can't promise that we'll be able to prepare the swag
- Before this date, you can write me an email, listing everything
you need. It can be items that we already have (T-shirts, hoodies, socks,
stickers, bags, notebooks, pens...) but also other things, if you have nice
ideas on what to print.
- I'll reply to you shortly and we'll discuss about the best
options to get the swag: print it from our usual partners in Germany, print
it locally, etc. I'll support you during the whole process.
If you have any question, suggestion, feel free to write to me at any
I'm excited about the plans we're going to build together!
