Besides the good wishes, a sombre reminder on my part to all recipients. This is "public money" that you are receiving in good faith. You need to make sure you contribute to Wikipedia in new and meaningful ways so that a few years later when we look back at this moment in time, we should be able to say "this initiative did a lot of good for the Indic Language Wikipedias" and not "Wish we had spent the money differently!"
