Cool. I'm in with $2k.

I'd like to contribute $1k. Would you like to coordinate together so we can meet the $5k threshold?

Edit: After further consideration, I decided to instead donate $500 to the donor lottery while increasing my direct donations elsewhere.

I have been put in touch with other donors that are each contributing less than $5k, but you can just team up with us. Email me at MyFrstName at MyLastName, followed by the most common domain extension.

Ideally there should be a better procedure for doing this; the associated trivial inconvenience may be discouraging some people from joining.

Note that this is now being implemented by donation swapping, so small donors don't have to put in any extra work.
