This may not be worth anybody's while, but the offer is still stands. Thanks!
You might get some more cooperation if you were able to provide a little more context. Who came to you? What's the format, how will people be credited? etc.
The Brethren are a generous bunch, but I think most of us would agree that we don't appreciate our good nature being taken advantage of, and for some reason this approach doesn't quite pass the smell test.
