I see the email for the reimbursement announcement has already gone out,
In the interest of transparency and fundraising, can we follow up this with
a request that the people that request sponsorship describe how LGM was for
them, what they did, who they connected with, any accomplishments etc..?
I think it is important that the people who have already sponsored, and
those who may be willing to sponsor, get to know what exactly their money
is used for.

Here is a proposed text, feel free to amend in any way necessary.
"We would appreciate if you would write a few sentences about your
experience of this years Libre Graphics Meeting. Did you get any new
perspectives? Did you meet any inspiring people? Did you get to discuss and
solve problems not possible without being in the same room?
Links to photos, blog posts or similar are also great. We plan to use this
in a summary of this years event, to tell the world what LGM is about."

We could send similar requests out to the various teams, and individuals
who have given talks/workshops.
