There is talk of developing such a thing. But it is the link to the
fundraising website that is the official information that you should be
pointing people to. You can feel free to quote from it in your website.

A reminder: we are still expecting the chairs to send an official appeal to
all of our contacts. The idea for the External Coordination Task Force was
to make use of the personal relationships we each have with some of the
organizations to send a more personal message, along with the link.
