I like the revised PDF. A couple thoughts, though....

I don't like how the "challenge" header isn't centered over its
corresponding text. I'd probably make it left justified.

I would also try to set apart that whole "challenge" section of text from
the rest of the document. I imagine it could be set in a very light gray box
with a black border, but the box background  shouldn't be too dark that the
QR code is tough to scan. A box at the bottom would sandwich the body text
between the top banner and bottom box, as well as emphasize the fundraising
challenge by treating it differently.

I suppose the same effect could be achieved with a horizontal rule to
separate the section and/or maybe a change of font size or style.  ...but I
think I'd like a box better, even if it just had a white background..

Wish I was at my desk to help out. Instead I'm in a car in rural Michigan
and doing as much as I can on my smartphone. Isn't technology wonderful? ;-)

Everything is lookin' good! I'm impressed with how much work is being done.

I tried a different format to see if it would look good with a b/w
banner from our new banner wiki page. (Sorry, I changed the DE flyer to
letter size just for testing purposes)

How does this look?

Also some notes about the flyers in general:

1. proportional spacing should not be used as this causes too many
rivers in the text, text should be set at "flush-left"

Second person to say that - ok off

2. The treatment of "euro", "euros", "Euro", "Euros" -- it was pointed
out that the EU Community established the singular form as the monetary
designation. So whether singular or plural it should always read "euro"
or "Euro"

3. The treatment of numbers with decimal and thousand separators. There
seems to be a mixed bag with no real consensus on its treatment. We
should then go for the middle of the road approach and use a space for
the thousand separator and the decimal point (period) for numbers.
UNLESS you wish to do some up for N.America only, in this case the comma
thousand seperator with the decimal point.

huh - which do you want comma.. no problem. I figure copy 200 pages (100
hand outs) for Saturday and another Sunday.

4. the QR graphic is too large. It should be reduced to fit the height
of the last paragraph.

Alright - well I updated the en file - with the header you introduced
and changed the layout to something similar to the es file from earlier,
but with the new header accommodated, changed to left justification.

I think this is reading perhaps even better again. What do you think.

Updated both files on the wiki:
and the odt file of course.

So I suppose there is, what 2 items left from above - comma and euro is
that it. Also color paper is out - unless both that header and the logo
graphic are changed - the document icon part of the logo turns the color
of the paper, of course...
