Budget change request[edit]

Food - from $800 to $1400


We planned on having 20 total participants, and we have over 40 participants. We've spent $870 on food and have 2 events to go.

Budget change request[edit]

PR Materials - from $500 - 900


We have twice as many participants as planned. In addition to typical office supplies (like post-it notes, paper, and markers), we also planned to print t-shirts with our group logo and name to raise awareness about our project. We simply need more supplies and tees than planned.

Request approved[edit]

I'm approving your request for an additional $600 for food and an additional $400 for PR materials, for a total increase of $1,000. Congratulations on your strong attendance rates! --Marti (WMF) (talk) 23:49, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
