Hi there! Thanks for volunteering to sit on the Fundraising committee. The work of the committee will be really valuable to making this year's annual giving campaign really effective. I've posted an overview to Fundraising 2010, and would love your thoughts on the talk page. I'm also going to try to set up an IRC meeting soon, and hope you'll join for that. Keep an eye Fundraising 2010/Committee for a couple of proposed times! Thanks again... Philippe (WMF) 18:25, 3 August 2010 (UTC)
I'd like to have a meeting on IRC this week to discuss the 2010-2011 annual appeal/fundraiser. This will be an "anyone is welcome" type meeting, open to the broad community. During this, Zack Exley and I will take you through our inital thoughts about the fundraiser and its organization, and ask you to join us in a discussion about the (massive) role of volunteers and chapters in this year's fundraiser.
Because of the vagaries of time zones, scheduling live meetings is hard. So, we'll have a couple of potential times, and we'll log and post the meeting for anyone who wasn't able to make it.
The meetings will be held Thursday, 12 August at 23:00 UTC (16:00 PDT) and Friday, 13 August at 16:30 UTC (09:30 PDT) in the #wikimedia-fundraising channel on the freenode network on IRC (irc://irc.freenode.net/wikimedia-fundraising). You can access this using freenode's webclient, which is available at http://webchat.freenode.net/ or by using your favorite IRC client.
Hope to see you there! Philippe (WMF) 20:36, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for showing interest in the fundraising committee. You can see that we've started to develop the Committee structure and I'd like to encourage your thoughts and participation in the formulation of the important role Wikimedians will play in our drive this year. Please leave me a message if you have a specific request from me, otherwise head to the talk pages and lets get started brainstorming! Keegan (WMF), Fundraising 2010 04:23, 8 September 2010 (UTC)

I noticed that you appeared to have opposed my banner on the basis that it is mostly in Latin. When looking through the other banners, I noticed that some were in Latin as well. Is there a specific policy that discourages banners in languages other than English? :| TelCoNaSpVe :| 23:43, 24 September 2010 (UTC)
- It depends how common the phrase is and how well it will be understood. 00:24, 2 October 2010 (UTC)
Social Media PlanEdit
Hi Sonia, As you might know that we are approaching the start of the fundraiser. I would like to ask for your participation in the finalization of the Social Media plan over the next week. We will be posting a final plan on the Social Media page formulated from the previous discussions and suggestions we received on that page. As an active member of the Fundraising committee your input and feedback would be highly appreciated. Regards. Theo (WMF) 23:50, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Sonia - I wanted to personally thank you for writing an editor appeal the fundraiser this year. I'm sorry we weren't able to use all of them this year, but I really appreciate you taking the time to write and submit one. Thanks again - Deniz (WMF) 21:15, 26 January 2011 (UTC)
- Huh- I'd forgotten that I'd written one. No probs, either way. sonia 00:34, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
