This is a great initiative. Ron is donating half of his profits to Mozilla. It's a great model for other merchandisers who may be interested in supporting Mozilla.

I think all the contributions we get are important: - the $2 million from AOL allowed us to even have a foundation, and hire key people - hundreds of thousands of dollars from other corporations help us hire more core developers - $400 from Ron shows how businesses can support Mozilla - $10 and $20 donations from more than 500 individuals add up to real money and show how broad the support is for Mozilla.
