Sponsoring Meetup groups is rather difficult. Meetup doesn't have a way to
sponsor a group's Meetup fees and doing it on a one-by-one basis is a lot
of paperwork (how does one keep track of who gets payment and how do they
make sure the payments are going to Meetup?)

If someone were to relay to Meetup that they'd love to have a way to do
this, that'd be super great...
