To spread Localized Firefox in India, Mozilla Hindi Localization community is planning for a coordinated pan-India campaign. The campaign would run from 2nd October to 1st November.

Why 2nd October: 2nd October is birthday of our Father our Nation, Mahatma Gandhi  and we celebrate this day as Gandhi Jayanti.
“Gandhi led nationwide campaigns for easing poverty, expanding women’s rights, building religious and ethnic amity, ending untouchability, but above all for achieving Swaraj or self-rule.”

To show users that Firefox is available in their language we are creating a campaign that helps fans of Firefox invite the people in their networks to download Firefox. We are creating unique, shareable pieces of content that are humorous, insightful and topical to get the conversation and activities started.

What are we saying?

Firefox is a non-profit browser that was created by thousands of volunteers who believe the Internet should be free and open to everyone. Firefox is built for people, not for profit. We don’t believe in tracking and selling people’s data. Firefox believes in creating a safe, open and customizable way to experience the web. Our dedication to privacy is the reason we were voted the most trustworthy Internet company.

Why are we asking you?

You are a passionate member of the Mozilla community. You tell people all the time about how amazing Firefox is and you probably have some super creative thoughts on how other people could tell their families and friends to download Localized Firefox too.

    i appreciate your thought and work. but dedication is not only thing which will help to promote language . we need to provide the accurate point to proof why Indian language is better for us .
    i think there must be some Privileges to promoters (a kind of motivational and financial help too).
    it can double the interest of people as 70% ignore the objective as they are not getting advantage of Indian language.(i tried to promote in a class of 3rd year c.s&e. of an engineering college ).
    i am trying to create a support team.
