The only things I've ever donated were my time and expertise. I've never donated any monetary value mostly because I don't have enough money to start throwing it around. I can help others debug code all day and possibly donate code for others' projects. When someone asks for a donation to "feed their family", my response is "I need to eat too." I don't feel bad, it's the unfortunate truth. I'm already poor, so should I donate myself into debt? That doesn't sound logical at all.

The same goes when I look at accepting donations, it's entirely up to the person giving their money. Can they afford to give money for my work? There are much better things they can use that money for, but if they're insistent, I won't say "no".
