Sorry, I've just re-read this email again and realised it sounds very bossy.
I didn't really mean it to ;-)
We're fairly well set up for the fundraiser, but input from the community
would still be really useful. There are some things which past experience
shows can't really be crowdsourced even for a Wikimedia fundraiser, but
there are other things which definitely can.
So if you're interested in helping raise £1,000,000 for the Wikimedia
movement this Autumn, please do have a look at the list of ways to get
involved and see which of them takes your fancy. :-D
(I've also put a readiness & risk report on the Fundraiser on my report for
Tuesday's board meeting, which you can see here;

I've just updated the Wiki with some details about
fundraiser, which is just a few short weeks away...
In particular there are 5 ways YOU can help. (YES, ALL OF YOU)
1. We still need more British Wikimedia stories, please give us yours
2. There is a "Thankyou page" that donors see once their payment has gone
through. At the moment, it's extremely rudimentary. Please help improve it!
3/4: I'd be really interested in hearing from web developers and
copywriters who are interested in getting involved in the fundraiser. If you
think this might be you, please drop me an email.
5. Come along to the EGM - or if you know you can't make it, *submit a
proxy authority* - so that we have a quorate meeting and can stay on track
to become a registered charity before the start of the fundraiser.
