Nice, thank you.

I am surprised to see no special mention of the translation process? I
suppose it comes under "Advance planning" and maybe the chapter

Berto (I think?) also raised the point about whether landing pages not
in English should be merely translated (and thus include a lot of
probably irrelevant info about US tax deductability, etc) or more
attention paid to appropriate localisation.

The point was also made that matching donations came too late in the
campaign to be as effective as they might have otherwise been. This
might have been unavoidable because of the individual donor though.
There is no mention in the report of matching donations?

Kudos to the chapters for their participation too :)


They've just been waiting in a mountain for the right moment:
