New fundraising campaign: help with QA?

Later this week, we’re rolling out a fun new fundraising campaign that I wanted to surface before it launches.

If you happen to be on the mailing lists for any of the US election campaigns this might seem familiar to you: we’re making it possible for anyone* to donate for a chance to win a trip to the Mozilla Festival in London from November 9-11. It’s also possible to enter without donating.

This is exciting to me for a couple of reasons:

  • I think it will be successful.
  • It can help shine a light on some of the awesome stuff that happens at #MozFest every year.
  • It’s the first non-evergreen campaign we’re running that’s localized. We have versions in French, Spanish, and German, with participation legal for those in US, UK, Canada (excluding Quebec), Mexico, Germany, and France.

Now, with all that said, a request for you, dear reader(s?): Can you help kick the can tires on our pages before we go wide?

Sample links for each of the four pages are here (with links to the signup pages in the text):





And the QA bug where you could enter anything you see is here:

A note of caution: These pages are currently live, though this blog will be the first time the links are anywhere in the wild other than bugzilla. So if you make a donation, it will charge you, and if you sign up, it will enter you.

With all that said, thanks in advance for any help or thoughts! If you don’t want to enter something you see, please feel free to leave a comment or get in touch with me directly.

*As mentioned in the bullet list, it’s not actually a fully global campaign at this point — the rules & regs around things like this were too much to make that possible. To enter, you must be 21 or older and live in the US, UK, Canada (excluding Quebec), Mexico, France, or Germany.
