That's nice, but the mission of the Foundation is to help everyone
share in the sum of all knowledge, and people who have donated to the
Fundation have done so to further that mission, not some other
mission, however worthy.  If members of the Community wish to support
the SDG, there are plenty of ways in which they can do so.  Diverting
resources from the mission of the Foundation weakens its core mission
and, I'll be blunt, is a fraud on the donors.
