A great idea. Would be great if we could try it in India.

Subject: [Wikimedia-l] [Wikimedia France] WikiCheese crowdfunding - Let's
photograph 'em all
To: "Wikimedia Mailing List"
Good news everyone,
Cheese articles are gonna get improved!
As french, it was dreadful for us to see so few illustrations of cheese on
Wikipedia. This is about to change.
A group of french Wikimedians, lead by Pierre-Yves Beaudouin, designed a
project to photograph many cheeses, up to 200 for the moment.
This project is perticular as we aim to have it found through a french
crowdfunding platform, KissKissBankBank.
Of course Wikimedia France could have funded it itself, but we wanted to
use the project as a way to get the larger audience aware of their ability
to contribute and to give a fun image of contributing.
The project in few words iss follow :
* 10 cheeses per session
* During the session the cheeses are photographed and their articles
* During the sessions experimented wikimedian would train new editors
* At every session every participant would enjoy eating good cheese too
If you want to read more, or even contribute, about the project you can go

If you have any questions, please feel free to shoot them on or off list.
All the best,
