In an effort to boost fundraising, 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. The rewards program was not continued in 2017, simply because it required too many additional volunteer hours of Mari to be worthwhile.
