I got told about this by Cary yesterday. I've bullet-pointed a couple of
possible ideas where the title might need to be changed to be more
provocative. Also done one,

Subject: [Foundation-l] Please contribute to the fundraising blog

All -

we've set up a blog to accompany our annual fundraiser. The headlines
from the blog will be featured in the sitenotice:


I'd like to invite you to submit posts to the blog. These posts can be
provocative, and should give compelling reasons to support the
Wikimedia Foundation. You can draft posts here:


Posts will be selected by a number of people: Cary Bass (our Volunteer
Coordinator), Sandy Ordonez (our Communications Manager), Sue Gardner
(Special Advisor to the Board), and myself. We'll probably try to have
a new post every 2-3 days at least.

Once again, the point of these posts is first and foremost to invite
the general public to donate. :-) Please submit stories in this
general spirit.

If you are willing to act as a moderator for comments to vet out spam
& trolling, please contact Cary Bass at <cbass AT wikimedia DOT org>.

For now, this is an experiment and as such, only in English. We will
set up blogs in other languages if this one has a measurable impact on
our fundraising.

Thanks for any and all help!

Member of the Board
