People want to donate to organizations that help kids with MD, but  
that doesn't stop Jerry Lewis from holding telefons.

People need to be reminded that these services are only available  
through their kind contributions.

Also some organizations need an actual governing body to donate to, an  
organization that is recognized as a non-profit institution by the  
local government so they can get a tax deduction.

I am not talking about knocking on each user's door with a hand out,  
but a few large contributors can really help shape the long-term  
prospectus of a non-profit organization.

Look how organizations such as Fedora or Wikipedia get their funding.
