As a core team, we committed to reserving at least 20% of the monthly budget for community efforts until at least one week prior to the budget cycle payments. However, as we are currently less than a week from the budget payments and it appears that a good amount of the budget is still unused, we are requesting some additional projects be funded from the remaining unused budget. The amount of unused budget remaining after today's other core team budget proposals is 133.98 Dash.
Our current public relations firm's contract - which is funded through the community-sponsored Dash World proposal - expires at the end of July. We anticipate the need for another PR contract in the fall, probably starting in September after the slow summer holiday period is over.
Although a firm and contract for September onward is not yet selected / signed, we would like to start pre-funding the expenses that will be needed in the August budget period to start another PR contract effective September 1st. In order to fund any contract, we will

It is simply that since a small amount of the July budget is still unallocated, we thought it prudent to capture the unused amount toward savings for this future need (thus reducing the needed amount in August).
Requested funding is as follows for the July 6th budget cycle:
