I don't disagree that we should welcome donations from uninvolved people 
who want to financially support us, and provide financial transparency 
to convince them their money is being well-used, but I hope you're not 
suggesting that only people who have nothing better to do with their 
time and no life edit Wikipedia.  There are plenty of professionals and 
academics here who really could (maybe even *should*) be doing other 
things, but for various reasons choose to spend some time editing.
