Not sure if this is still relevant or not, but since it concerns the Store, moving it to the proper component.

The store no longer has a donations link. The main donations link is here: http://www.mozilla.org/foundation/donate.html. This should go over to someone on the Moz Foundation side that maintains this page. They can review the suggested changes and decide if they want to make the change.
closing this one out as won't fix. The page looks fine.
