Well, I'll warn you:  this gets more complicated than it would seem.  This is 
coming from the guy that has spend a dang lot of time trying to work out 
these types of issues with adopt-a-geek.  In how many countries do you know 
how to order a pizza?  Is it normal to deliver?  How many of those languages 
do you speak?  What about your contributors?  Will they order directly?  
Which languages do they speak?  Is it common to take credit cards in those 
countries?  What's the exchange rate?  How much does a pizza cost?  A six 
pack of beer?  (EUR 2 in Germany, but maybe 10+ in Norway, ~70 NKr.)

Since this seems very adopt-a-geek like, I just felt compelled to point out 
some of the complications.
