Good idea - if you can do it in 2 lines (3 at most). More would be too pushing.

No, at least from all the articles I read over the last 10 years this
would be very extraordinary. If the author asks for some words from us
he wants a quote with an opinion, statement, information, whatever,
but definitely not a donation rally. The only case I ever read such a
quote was when Mandrakesoft went into chapter #11 and asked for help.

But of course we can always ask the author to mention the fact that
Mageia is running on donations and add the link to the donation page,
he will surely include this in his article. I will :)
