Q1: 11,960 vs 10,329
Q2: 94,667 vs 17,121 (here it's because of Flock)

2014 to $1250 and I have 9 people asking for sponsorship to help at the
booth and participate in the devroom. With that money, I can't even
cover a hotel for them. 
So we would definitely appreciate if you let us know if there are any
funds above what we projected to spend in Q4.

quarters compared to $8496 provided by RH. It can't be caused just by
