Wikipedia uses banners with an appeal to donate at the top of the page to raise money. Tor could do the same, (possibly) with the following change:

Instead of / in addition to a generic "we need money to run this service", it could display (an excerpt of) a story from a Tor user or developer. "Tor has saved my life while I was in Syria", "I am working on Tor because...", and so on.

We could also add those stories on the donation page itself (maybe in a box with the stories sliding through, like this image gallery:

This is somewhat related to #10264 (Ticket).

This Idea came up in the workshop "How you can help Tor" during 30c3.

I'm open to the idea, but someone would have to create the content.

We did that during the campaign. Then we were happy to remove the ugliness once the campaign was over. We should revisit this during future campaigns, maybe.
