### User Story
As an admin, I want to be notified if a funder funds a bounty with an extremely low price because setting reasonable and fair hourly rates is one of many ways that OSS is sustained.
### Why Is this Needed
OSS sustainability is only possible if we pay developers a fair price for the value they put forth. Certain prices (e.g < $1) for any type of task is considered lowballing the developer / bounty hunter. Warning Gitcoin admins of an extremely low bounty price and giving the admins the option to manually follow up with the funder is necessary to prevent publishing of lowball bounties.
### Current Behavior
Currently, there are no warnings or emails triggered when a bounty is funded below a certain threshold.
### Expected Behavior
An email is automatically sent to Gitcoin administrators when a bounty is funded that is below $X.
### Definition of Done
1. When a funder hits "submit an issue," a threshold check (if else logic) on the bounty value is performed.
2. If the bounty value is below the threshold, an automatic email to Gitcoin admins is triggered with the issue link, funder, and funder information.
3. Being below a $X threshold should not prevent the bounty from being published, but an automatic email should be triggered.
