nice, but not sure it's within app scope :)

Would this be 'legally' allowed? Given WMF's non-profil tax exemption status, I'd like to know if any legal objections exists regarding quid pro quo when donating. (It's technically no longer a donation, but a purchase)...I know the WMF shop exists, but we call it for what it is, and not a donation...

@Josve05a I'm not sure the legalities here, but if we persue this concept we would definitely work with our legal and advancement teams to make sure we were compliant on WMF policy and legal fronts.

FWIW in the US non-profits often give "gifts" for donations. The cliched example is that donating to PBS (the non-profit public TV channel) always gets you a tote bag.

However, might be be true in all countries etc. Just thinking pro-activly here :)
