Excellent report! I'm really impressed with the low level of donations from Latina America.
We need to do something to stimulate people to contribute a little bit more to our mission. During the first two weeks of the campaign in Brasil, I received a lot of messages from friends requesting information about the Wikipedia banners asking for donations, a lot of people thought that it was spam, spyware or something fake. So, I guess the low level of donations from Brasil (specially) can be linked with that issue. In August I started a local effort talking to some journalists regarding the importance of the donations to our movement. I contacted some of our contacts to spread it, and many posts was published here regarding the fund-raising campaign, with a really good impact. http://bit.blog.br/wikipedia-pede-doacoes-para-ajudar-a-manter-site-no-ar/ ( interview replicated on twitter and facebook of http://diariodepernambuco.com.br/ to more than 800.000 followers) http://www.gazetadopovo.com.br/vida-e-cidadania/wikipedia-comeca-nova-campanha-de-doacoes-para-manter-site-funcionando-cdlzioae60haolfoz3l6ohm1c http://www.tecmundo.com.br/wikipedia/84931-wikipedia-volta-pedir-doacoes-leitores-manter-ar.htm http://www1.folha.uol.com.br/tec/2015/08/1670681-wikipedia-comeca-nova-campanha-de-doacoes-para-manter-site-funcionando.shtml http://g1.globo.com/tecnologia/noticia/2015/08/wikipedia-pede-doacoes-para-se-manter-independente.html What we can do to help to improve the local level of donations? I'm really interested to help with that problem here and our user group can spend some time on it, for sure it is something that need some attention. How can I get more information about the donations from Brasil, mainly to identify if after the news published by the local media it improved(or not) the level of donations? There are any way to track it?
