I have used this campaign in Colombia to contact each of the possible members directly (not via groups, nor social networks posts), and I think it has had a good effect.

First, I check the list of current mappers in Colombia from ResultMaps: OSMstats - Statistics of the free wiki world map

Then, for each one I check the HDYC profile to verify if the mapper has more that 42 days in the last 365:

Finally, I contact the user by OSM messaging, Telegram or other ways, and tell him/her about the campaign, by sharing the images and the blog. I feel that Colombia has increased a lot its number of members, because many of them have confirmed me they had done the process.
