    Note: To boost the fundraising effort, a rewards program was added on February 26, 2016 and ended December 31, 2016.
    Some but not all of the remaining 2016 contributors selected a reward as a thank you for their contribution. It is not planned to have another rewards program in 2017, simply because it required too many additional volunteer hours of Mari to be worthwhile.
