Fundraising 2010/Messages/Geography

By geographyEdit

Here you can propose location-specific messages that you think would work particularly well in that geography. They can also be non revenue-oriented, so that they will implemented to attract non-financial contributions in case the local financial revenue raised by fundraising does not support the continued use of an appeal message.
