Hi Thea, hi Seddon, thanks for the report! Sometimes, I'd love to see more details on specific details. Nevertheless, thanks for publishing it. More out of curiosity: Can you give more details on the origin of donations within Africa? Are they all from South Africa? Cheers Cornelius On Sun, 30

India is definitely a place Fundraising see's as having a lot of potential in the future, but similarly expectations should be managed. It may have a population twice the size, but its readership is only a fraction of Europe's. India is also dominated by mobile that has been substantially more

I suppose Asia can do a lot better than 3 million, but I don't augur much success with increasing those campaigns for Africa and South America, at least using the current model. Looking by the sample I know in Brazil (last year fundraising campaign, in August I believe) the Brazilian Portuguese
