Here is the proposal for the budget. Please comment, discuss, here is a great place where to do it - "the fhb mailing list".

  • 500 EU for this whole event. Preferred option would be to receive donations in advance which we do not have to return, just one way and final. Second option would be to receive “returnable donation” which we would give back to the supporter at the end of the event.
  • We should discuss kick starter options for both USA and Europe, what are the “agencies” which we could try to use, who would be taking care about that etc.
  • There should be at least one person which would be OK to receive money donations by paypal and/or bank transfers (Europe based I think).
  • We will have a donation box at Food Hacking Base assembly location so we will collect donations in this way, it worked well the last time.
  • I (Frantisek Apfelbeck) would like to ask to have clearly labelled donation box of my own on the place too, I need to cover at least part of my travel costs (around 800 EU in total), otherwise I will be in trouble. I hope you will be OK with that, I see this as a better option compared to “mixing it” with fhb donations. I am sure that there will be quite a bunch of people who will put money in both :-)
  • We should be clearing our balance each day so we know how we are doing. I would recommend to have it online probably Google spreadsheet or something else?
  • If we are cash positive at the end of the event, we should keep the cash with someone involved at fhb who is not me (Frantisek Apfelbeck - I am too volatile for that, on the road all the time) for the next event. We spend around 130 EU for 28c3 event and were left with extra 45 EU which are part of the budget for this event (so just 455 EU to go :-)).
  • We should also discuss what are we going to do with the ingredients which are going to be left over. We could redistribute them among ourselves or maybe give it to some hacker space, CCC or some charity?
