Pretty much everyone on our list of ideas, I guess... We should choose
something specific, though! Going into schools to promote Wikipedia
and show how to use it (and the other projects, I guess) might be a
good place to start (we could try and get journalists to turn up too
so we can spread the word of our existence). The only real cost for
that is travel - picking some numbers out of thin air, if we say we
want visit 5 schools, with a team of 3 going to each school, and it
costs £100 per person to get there, that comes to £1500, a reasonable
amount to ask for.
