I must say, it feels really good knowing my work is useful to others.
I repeat once more what a buzz it was seeing sentences I'd written in
[[:en:Xenu]] reused in literally every news report on Tom Cruise
around mid-2005 ...

One thing I've been doing when shilling for the fund drive is add "If
you want to give something back but haven't got money, you could give
photos or writing instead." I don't know if adding that to the fund
drive page would overly distract from the important message, i.e. that
we're on the bones of our arse and NEED MONEY NOW. One to consider
between fundraisers, perhaps.
