Hello fellow forumites, I'm in need of your help!

================ CLOSED ================




Me and my father work on a project to enable people uncover public spending pipelines, to both be aware of what's being paid from our taxes and to prevent frauds and corruption. We are trying to make clickable drilldown visualisation of public budgets. We run blog portal of citizens of our municipality (independent from political parties and local government), which will house it. You can see it here - www.racan.sk. It's in Slovak, but you can translate it with google to get some overview if you may.


Now what I ask you for?

To keep it simple, I'll just point out important things:

  • we are one of 7 finalists of Slovak competition, which aims to support projects bringing positive change to the society

  • we have a chance to get grant

  • grant money will be awarded to a project, which gathers most supporters (top 3 qualifies)

  • support is meant as contribution (at least 1 EUR) through donation site www.ludialudom.sk

  • the more people will give us symbolic 1 EUR, the bigger is our chance to be in top 3


    Those who contribute will have my gratitude and get extra forum medal/badge to show under your name.
    Design is yet to be finished, maybe something like this (sure smaller, to fit the layout of the forums)




    I want to help! What should I do?

    It's bit tricky since donation site is in Slovak, but if you have some confidence in me, I'll guide you through the process. All you need is credit/debit card.



    1. Go to our announcement - http://www.ludialudom.sk/vyzvy/705 (translated by google - bit jiggy, anyway...)- you will see site show below. To make donation, use this button:



    2. Since you have no account, you have to use right side for registration - just name and email address is necessary:



    3. Fill in the registration form, it's very simple



    4. Choose how much to donate and type of payment. You will get special forum badge from me if you fill in your username to comment (see picture below)



    5. You'll see this page. It's telling you you're being redirected to payment gateway. Wait patiently till payment gate shows up (see next step). Don't stop or close your browser window/tab.



    6. You'll see payment gateway of Tatra Banka, which is Slovakian branch of Austrian Raiffeisent Bank International. Choose your language in top right and read all the details to make you comfortable with it.



    7. Once confortable with the security (it's secure as far as I can tell, I use it frequently myself), fill in your card details and proceed. If you paid over the Internet before, this should be no problem for you. Even if you didn't it should be easy to get everything filled in right.



    8. If your payment went through, you should see page like this. If not, try whole process again, though you might not need to register again, instead log in (left side in step 2) and follow up.



    9. You should be able to see your contribution at the bottom of the page







    If you know anybody who'd be willing to help, spread the word please. We have time till 28.11.2012 (precisely till 28.11.2012 10:59 PM GMT). Edit: It's over, thanks for watching.

    Thanks!

    Yours

    Daniel aka Lord Ederon

    So this is sort of like Kickstarter in Slovakese?

    "Hvor fattige var de ikke, disse fiskere som levde av havets nåde! De slet sig gjennom livet uten å se sig om til høire eller til venstre. Deres gleder var få, deres bekymringer mange. Men de hadde allikevel et gemyttlig smil til den fremmede, en munter vise og en lun historie. For sånn er de, disse Sørlandets barn."
