Linux upgrade special - Upgrade 150 desktops or laptops to Linux for $0.00. Each additional upgrade after that costs $0.00.

Still, I'd donate to that. You could set the funding target low-ish and buy the biggest ad you have the money for. You'll want a nice, cleanly designed website to go along with it.
