[kde-community] Randa Meetings fundraising - please spread

Hi Sandro,

going to the fundraiser website, I noticed that it is out of date:

It still talks about Randa 2016 being in the future. Shouldn't it be updated,

and instead of talking about what we _will_ do there, talk about what _has been 

there, and than changing the message to "If you want us to be able to continue doing

such great things, please donate to fund future meetings."

It's not much of a surprise to me that a campaign focused on funding a specific

meeting loses drive after that specific meeting is over. The meeting happened, so

obviously we had enough money to do it, now why donate more for it?

If we want the fundraiser to still be engaging, we have to change the message.
