You can get some amount from shipit if you're an official team, or a
much smaller amount, individually if you're not yet an official team.

In Ubuntu-be, (especially) when we distribute burned CDs, we ask for
voluntary contributions.

visitor Q: "Are these CDs for free?"
ubuntu-be A: "Yes, but if you want, we really appreciate a voluntary
gift to cover our costs for the fair booth, CD-Rs, travel costs, etc."

Some people pay for their CDs, others don't, but there are also people
who already use Ubuntu but still give us some money just out of

That way, we can run at a relatively low cost, without too many personal
(financial) investment by individuals inside the Ubuntu-be team.
