Description (last modified by arma)

Right now we get a dozen or something donations each day from Paypal.

When somebody in the Tor community does something that might generate more donations, there's no feedback mechanism to find out if it worked, except "ask Roger".

In the future, once we launch an actual fundraising campaign, showing momentum will be a critical way that people can stay engaged.

We should come up with some way to automatically reflect donations momentum for our community.

Adding a text field is straightforward using the Button Creation Page. More info: https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/get-started/donate-button-text-field

However, it might be even better to add a drop-down list to select various projects (with the default being just "The Tor Project - Main" or something similar). It requires some basic html, but some options are noted in the example here: https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/About-Business-Archive/Add-select-list-to-donation-button/td-p/728503
