Hi everyone,

Just a reminder to your teams about this.

We are seriously looking at different teams' wishlists. Please do take a 
little time out of your busy schedule and speak to your teams about any 
funding for items that you think may be of importance to your team or 
the enhance the functioning of your team's work on the project. So far 
there are only the website and marketing teams who are working on some 
items. Feel free to ask if you have any questions regarding this. At 
this point, anything goes, as long as the requests are reasonable. We 
need these items for planning more effective funding drives as well as 
for budgeting. It would really help if your suggestions come along with 
approximate costs where possible.
