“Just before the tragedy there was a DDF post in a thread on Life Insurance saying “If death was only planned so nicely.” Mere hours later, we learned about the tragedy in Meron. We never know when our time will be up, so the least we can do is make sure our loved ones are provided for by taking out a substantial life insurance policy to cover the unexpected.”

Thank you!!!!!!

Hard disagree.
With the first part (that "help families" is not a good way to start a headline) or with the second part (my proposed headline)?

I think is should not be marketed as an advertisement.
Better now? Not really sure what cat it should be in, ads is just a catch all for these posts whether it's paid or not.

I think it's much better, but it seems like @Yehuda57 has an opinion on this, so maybe wait for his insight.

Absolutely! Went from the most-often skipped section to the most-often read section.

With the first part (that "help families" is not a good way to start a headline) or with the second part (my proposed headline)?

1) Me (a non DDFer) helping families is way more engaging than DDFers taking initiative, or whatever. 2) The second part isn't for public discussion ;-)

Can you make a suggestion? We need a headline that gets people to read the thread without getting "turned off" by thinking it's "just a regular fundraiser"

Another thought - even non DDF viewers of DDMS have come to read many posts about DDF, and probably have some level of camaraderie towards DDF, more than just to a random organization that has non-familiar credentials. They may see it as an extension of DDMS, which they probably appreciate because they are on the site.

How about speaking out in the title; Donate to a special Dans Deals Fundraiser
