This information should be readily available on your Pledgie page. To
actually get donations, it is fundamental to communicate what people
are helping to achieve by donating. Some sneak peaks/teasers might be
beneficial too. Also make sure that your cause is known to the big
related communities. Get on Planet GNOME and Planet KDE for instance.
