'tis the season... to donate to your favourite projects?

I just donated some of my hard-earned money to two of my favourite projects:

- Wikipedia.  I use Wikipedia several times a week when I want to read up on just about anything, so I usually make a donation every year. If Wikipedia ceased to exist, I would be very unhappy, so this is the least I can do.

- Amarok.  With a good set of headphones on, amarok serves up the right mix of tunes needed to block out external distractions and allow me to be more productive.  This is a sound investment (pun intended).

Of course, the Eclipse Foundation also accepts donations.  If you feel you're getting great value from the best (and free) IDE/toolset available, a small donation to show support will go a long way.
