Women of Dash Slack:

This proposal is a continuation of the work I've already been doing since the beginning of March. The video above has more detailed info the stats of DASH FOR NEWBIES for one month, but here's a highlight:

28 articles
53 new subscribers
8,600 views (total)

YOUTUBE:
5 videos
55 new subscribers
7214 views (1300 views Newbies)

Women of Dash Slack: 51 members
This new proposal builds upon the momentum I've started in the last month. 
I've received a lot of new Twitter and Steemit followers since starting this new work for Dash. Also, my articles in Hackernoon (which has over 95,000 suscribers) have been generating a lot of new people entering Dash. Additionally, I've recently been contacted by Jeremy Epstein, author and entrepreneur, who seeks to do an interview with me. He found my Dash DAO article in Hackernoon. It's getting the word out, for sure.
If you want additional stats and details, they can also be found in the pre-proposal thread, so click here.

This new proposal will be incorporating some paid Facebook marketing which I will be excited to to share with you soon. I'll be marketing the contests, since everyone is interested in winning money. I'll also be consulting with some killer marketing people to figure out how to best spend advertising revenue. 
Thank you for your support and I am very excited to be on this journey with everyone. I have some very big plans in store, and I will be revealing those in the coming months. 

I've been working on a mission statement as well, and that can be found in the forums in the pre-proposal section. The main idea behind these projects is to bring in people who have never used Bitcoin, create a fun, stress-free experience for newcomers and to attract and educate people who like the Dash mission. I'm also switching my articles to the Creative Commons license so that people who want to translate them into foreign languages can do so with ease. Also, the second reason to change them to Creative Commons is so that anyone can use, distribute them, and reassemble them. Also, if Dash.org needs to copy my articles into a new online home, the Creative Commons license will allow this. I've been doing a lot of thinking about open source projects, and I am committed to helping realize a more fair, just and free world. Working for the common good of all people is the philosophy I hold closest to my heart. 

Thanks,

Stellabelle

You arguably work and trying hard to promote the digital cash.
Voting YES to support that.

I would suggest a subtle change for the name of your channels though.
Use EVERYONE instead of NEWBIES because people in general do not really want to be newbies, and some may even feel repelled by that to a certain degree. Also EVERYONE is not too bold because the digital cash is meant to be ultimately used by general public. And of course EVERYONE includes the newbies too ;)

Voting yes. Hey, what do you think about outreach to Japan as a potential future service by you to the Dash community, and Japan of course. Humongous untapped potential.
