At some point, there will only be a NFP to donate to.

In the mean time, if I can't cover basic living expenses and have a basic
standard of living, then I suppose I could use some of the donation money to
support my family so I can continue to run the store, or I could shut down
the store and quickly try to get a job.

While the store is running, the donations will go towards NFP-related
expenses that I am planning on covering via the Store. If not this, then if
absolutely necessary towards the store itself so it can keep running. If the
Store is shut down or the Store doesn't need the money, then it could go
towards the NFP's operating budget, but only after the NFP's legal expenses
have been paid off.

If I am unable to cover basic living expenses and am saddled with the
responsibility to pay off significant NFP legal fees, then no, the donation
money will not go to the NFP until this situation is corrected. Otherwise
you are asking me to hurt my family for the sake of Gentoo again.

This is painful for me to discuss because I have already allowed Gentoo to
hurt my family. Which is why I don't understand why these questions keep
coming up. You'd think that after making these kinds of sacrifices in the
past there would be some kind of trust in me to look out for the best
interests of Gentoo. And it is unpleasant for me to have to outline all the
potential scenarios of me being unable to cover my family's basic living
expenses. I am tired of having to do this.
