Hi Lizz

	Good question.

	People are encouraged to contribute whatever they can, both in terms of type of contribution and amount of time they can spend.  If you only have a couple of hours, that's still valuable.  Of course, if you have a whole day, except for a couple of hours, that's even better :)
