I'd leave that statement and discussion for another thread, I think
that stating that the DNS and ICANN's mission is to provide certain
level of trust for worthy causes is out of the scope of the original
message and I'd also say this list.

With all due respect I don't believe that this is the time or cause to
inject the gTLD applicants "propaganda" to justify the need or
implicit community approval for such a gTLD.

Let's go back to the original subject.

I'd not mind if somebody properly sets up an easy and legit way for
individuals or members of the "networking community" a way to donate
small quantities to help Raynold and his crew directly via things such
as PayPal, but there is a ton of aid going to HT, perhaps somebody
with access can influence the process to better direct the funds where
they are needed.
