Party Fund

JP is being incredibly generous by hosting this party, so a few of us were thinking that it'd be nice to chip in to cover the expenses (e.g. meat for 80 people and fireworks...). To facilitate things and equalize everyone's spendings we'll use If you want to contribute, download the app and message me your phone number or email on Slack so I can add you to the group. -Stefan
