Automatically add a block of text as description upon creating a new issue in JIRA

As the title says,

when I create a new issue (any type, bug, task, etc..) and select a specific project, I would like to automatically paste a bit of text as description, which can either come before custom description written upon creation, or after, doesn't matter.

Is this possible somehow?

There is an add on we use for that called 

Default Values for Create Issue screen

But it should also be simple to do with automation for jira, which JIRA recently bought. They do a lite version which should be enough to do what you need for free.

There are a number of add-ons that can do this ScriptRunner, Automation for Jira, etc.  The one that would be the cheapest and easiest to use would be JSU update any issue field on post function.  You can associate a workflow with the project and on issue create have a post function that would append to the end of the description your information using the JSU plugin.  This would also have very little overhead if you are on a large instance.  ScriptRunner would be my second recommendation and just using a post function to accomplish the same thing.
