Sounds like a great idea, but don't we need the infrastructure first?

I see that it includes a video camera if we are quick enough to sign up, but we need set in stone volunteers who can do broadcasts with green screens, etc. If this has already been done, what else have I missed...?

We at Wikinews would like board members to quickly give their response to a new YouTube project for non-profits.

Broadcast Your Cause

Our Wikinews Video project would benefit highly from something like this. And the good part is it will cost the foundation or Wikinews nothing, and the first 300 agencies to sign up get a free video camera.

What else is included?
Your Nonprofit channel (aka Wikinews) includes:
  • Premium branding capabilities and increased uploading capacity
  • Rotation of your videos in the "Promoted Videos" areas throughout the site
  • The option to drive fundraising through a Google Checkout "Donate" button
I guess I am asking, do we need permission to sign up?
