Given that the process to spend the $50 doesn't have to happen right away (unless I'm mistaken), then maybe it should be emphasized that the signing up part only takes 20 seconds or so. 

Thanks so much!

Hi! Great idea. I'm Megan, I work in communications at Rethink Charity and at ALLFED. I'd love to be in the group, although I don't have a lot of capacity to contribute to it over the next few months. Thanks!

Thanks for the thought and the kind words! Hope you had a great conference too :)
