I've submitted a pull request: 
https://github.com/mozilla/bedrock/pull/2418
Is this change being made purely for aesthetics? We should confirm that the specific mozillaorg_default_footer source isn't required on sendto.mozilla.org for tracking.

CC'ing dboswell to see if he can point us to who could answer that for us.

I think Andrea Wood at the Foundation is the right person to ask about donations.

Thanks David.

Andrea, can you let us know if it's ok for us to simplify the Donate link from the footer from:

https://sendto.mozilla.org/page/contribute/Give-Now?source=mozillaorg_default_footer
to
https://sendto.mozilla.org/page/contribute/Give-Now?source=mozillaorg

The link still points to the same page. It's only the "source" variable that is changing. Can you confirm that this change is ok?
Flags: needinfo?(andrea)
No, it's not OK to make that change. The source codes are purposeful. We have unique source codes on each link in order to see which locations on the homepage are most favorable for people who are interested in making a donation.

Thanks Andrea - glad we checked! We'll leave them as is.
