All, I thought it would be helpful to share with you all this blog post from a key volunteer at Wikimania 2014, who has gone on to launch a domestic violence charity on a shoestring budget.
It explains how she went about it, what their workflows are, how they attract and keep volunteers, how they use open licensing to make a real difference in a non-open-movement group. I've already got some great new ideas from it, and it has ideas that could help all of us, from the WMF to WMIE. Key reading, I think, for those who have even a small group of Wikimedia volunteers and no budget!
