As you’ve probably seen, we’ve put a nice Friends of GNOME goal tracking ruler on top of GNOME’s website, Planet GNOME and in Friends of GNOME page. This is a strong promotion strategy to attract attention to Foundation’s current goal to hire a sysadmin for GNOME. The strategy seems to be working quite well! In the three days since the ruler was published, we’ve got around $1,500 in donations from Friends of GNOME and $5,000 from Collabora, joining other three companies Canonical, Google, and Nokia.
As of today, we’re only $4,602 from reaching the goal and we need your contribution! Help us getting more donors by:
- Blogging about our campaign and pointing people to Friends of GNOME page.
- Tweeting “Help the GNOME Foundation to hire a sysadmin for GNOME! http://www.gnome.org/friends” on Twitter, Identi.ca, Facebook, and any of your favorite microblogging sites.
- Add one of the Friends of GNOME badges in your website or blog.
- Spread the word about the campaign among your friends, local Free Software communities, user groups, etc.
We’re very close to get to hire a sysadmin for GNOME! Let’s make it happen!
