Apologies in advance if this feels spammy. I showed it to Barry first 
and he was interested in seeing what people thought of the idea
I have been working with a few folks on a grassroots way for people to
donate money to various non-profits & projects such as Apache, Hurd,
EFF, or even to a given developer.  This donation might be in response
to some helpful feedback given by that developer in response to a
question; it might be because their name and URL were in some software
they used.  Affero takes a bit off the top for our expenses, which we
think is reasonable given the costs involved in credit card auth and
the like. The software used to deliver the service is open source.

For example, take a look at a link I created below. 


People can go to that URL and donate money, 35% of which goes to the
Squid, 35% to XFree86 and 30% to FSF Gen Fund-GCC.

We're very interested in any comments and feedback on the
site/service. You can check it out at http://www.affero.com.
BTW, we have been told that we should lower the $15.00 minimum.
What do you think about that?
