Is there a place for campaigns on Metafilter?

I'd occasionally like to share details of campaigns I'm interested in with fellow Mefites -- petitions, calls to action, charity appeals, that kind of thing. I'm not actively involved in them, they're not projects -- but I might be affiliated to the organisation in some way.
I could craft a blue around the subject matter, and include the call to action, but that feels like a sneeky form of editorialising. Is it?
And what if I didn't (or couldn't) make an interesting, relevant post of out it? I'm sure single links to petitions would go down like a lawn turd. Is there an argument for a whole new section, or is this a category of content that just doesn't belong on Meta?
